Monkey River Village
Located at the mouth of the Monkey River, the village is bordered on the west by riverine forests and is a great place for experiencing the Belizean jungle.
There are many river tours to choose from, which gives you a chance to see beautiful riverine forests and wildlife in the comfort of a skiff. As you glide by, iguanas dive into the water, troops of howler monkeys race through the trees, birds dart from tree to tree and crocodiles sun along the banks of the river.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, take a hike through the jungle, where you’ll come across herbal medicines, tarantulas, crocodiles, snakes, howler monkeys and various birds, including toucans and oropendolas. If lucky, you may spot a deer, tapir, or even a jaguar.
