  • What you expect is that we not much and maybe that's why it was a gorgeous experience. The Guide took much time us about the lifestyle of the Brüllaffenzu inform. It must be a conscious, that this is not a Zoo and we discovered then the monkeys in the jungle. With much patience one could attract will and he ate then us out of your hand. An unforgettable experience.

  • Definitely a must while in Belize. Guides were very informative and forth coming with information. Wonderful experience, especially for children. Tour includes a hike in nature and if brave; a face to face with wild howler monkeys.
  • $10 us a person spend 5 min to see the monkeys, I will not do it again, I will give 0 stars, I have better encounters with monkeys at fairs in the US, finish paying $50 us for 5min adventure with my kids, go to Mexico have better monkey encounters, for a quarter of the price! (Not worted the money)
  • Very nice all wild free monkey in nature beautiful and in there natural habitat
  • Love this site, place to visit go for it but make sure you go the Community baboon Sanctuary they give back to the community ...
  • Support local ecoconservation by stopping by. This is totally worth the $7 US. You will be face to face with the howler monkeys. Russell took us and we learned so much about the animals and local plants.
