  • We didn't know what to expect, but had a fun experience here. The monkeys (howler monkeys) we're so close you could have touched them (although not allowed to). If you enjoy seeing them in their natural habitat, this is for you.
  • It's sure was a beautiful experience seeing the animals living in the community.
  • 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.
  • Looking for an adventure? This is the place to be. Located in Bermudian Landing. Belize Rural, North. Just ask for Shane Baizar.
  • Great place to visit. Are guide was super knowledgeable about the plants and animals.
