Community Baboon Sanctuary, Belize District

4.0
#4 of 12 in Parks in Belize District
Home to more than 2,000 howler monkeys, over 250 bird species, and a wide array of other animals that frequent the area, Community Baboon Sanctuary invites you to observe fascinating creatures in their natural habitat. The sanctuary, which stretches for over 51 sq km (20 sq mi), is one of the first of its kind in the world. It came about thanks to over 200 land owners from seven villages, who pledged their land to protect the endangered monkey species. Speak to knowledgeable guides who take you through the nature preserve and teach you about the local animal and plant life.
