You’ll make friends with howler monkeys on this trip. After a scenic drive past Belize City’s colonial buildings, you’ll stop at the Community Baboon Sanctuary. This place found life in 1985 and it’s now a sanctuary for over 2,000 endangered black howler monkeys – called ‘baboons’ in the local Creole dialect. Walking through the forest, your guide will point out the monkeys that get their name from their loud howls – they can be heard up to three miles away, even through thick forest. After you’ve been introduced to the primates, you’ll be treated to a taste of locally produced cashew wine.
You should wear cool comfortable clothing and walking shoes. Sunscreen, cap and sunglasses are recommended. This tour is not suitable for pregnant women and guests with back/neck injuries.
