Description
A half-hour boat ride through the mangroves takes you to Monkey River Village, a small village with approximately 200 residents in Southern Belize.  Upriver, your licensed tour guide will lead you into the rainforest in search of howler monkeys which communicate with each other to declare their territory. You can also expect to see crocodiles in the water, huge iguanas on tree branches sunning themselves, turtles, and many species of tropical birds. Your guide will also point out the different plants and trees many of which are used for medicine by local bush doctors. As you hike through the jungle further from the river you may spot gibnuts also known as the royal rats, deer, ocelots, peccaries, tapirs, coatimundis and agoutis. Before heading out on a manatee watch and back to Placencia, we stop at Miss Alice's restaurant, where you buy a genuine Kriol lunch.
