Attraction Visited

Community Baboon Sanctuary

The Community Baboon Sanctuary Private Reserve is one of the easiest places in Belize to encounter black howler monkeys in the wild. Established in 1985, this baboon sanctuary was set up as a cooperative agreement among 12 local farmers and landowners in Bermudian Landing who voluntarily agreed to preserve the area’s black howler monkey habitat. They believed that a healthy population of monkeys could help support the local economy by drawing in tourism and creating jobs.

Traveler Comments

We really liked our Monkey River tour. Our guide was good and helpful. We enjoyed the local lunch in the village. Our only disappointment was the relative lack of wildlife on the trip. We have been to Costa Rica and saw far more wildlife in a similar setting. Despite that, we loved being out on the water and racing through the mangrove cayes. We were staying at Seaview Suites in town, but the tour ran out of Robert's Grove Resort. They kindly picked us up at our hotel, and returned us at the end of the day. Much appreciated!
