Description
See spectacular wildlife and quaint coastal villages on this fun-filled tour. Traveling by boat from Punta Gorda, you will pass through the Port Honduras Marine Reserve, a beautiful reserve dotted with mangrove cayes and home to manatees and dolphins until you reach Monkey River Village, a small fishing village at the mouth of the river. Continuing up the river, you can see a variety of wildlife, including exotic birds, iguanas, and crocodiles. When you reach the Howler Monkey Trail, you will walk through the trees and your guide will locate the resident monkey population.

Traveling back down the coastline, stop at the village of Punta Negra, a tiny community only accessible by boat. The ladies of the village will prepare a fresh seafood lunch, then you will learn how to make Miss Paula’s fresh coconut fudge. You will also have time to enjoy the quiet beach and take a swim in the Caribbean Sea.
