Get up close and personal with howler monkeys in their natural habitat


See the Belizean Rainforest firsthand, interact with nature, and enjoy the hospitality of the local community all in one half-day excursion. This Belize Monkey Tour will have you hiking some of the best trails in the north of Belize while keeping your eyes peeled for monkeys in their habitat. It’s an excellent option for those looking to get away from the crowds and see howler monkeys in one of the few places in the world where they can be viewed in their natural setting.

The tour starts with a relaxing drive through Belize City and the scenic towns along the northern highway before arriving at the village of Bermudan Landing. Here you’ll don your hiking gear and explore the area with your guide. You’ll likely hear the monkeys before you see them, and if you’re lucky, a curious howler monkey or two will come down to check you out.

As you hike through the rainforest, you’ll also learn about the lifestyle of the black howler monkey and be able to ask questions to your knowledgeable guide. To top it all off, your visit to the Howler Monkey sanctuary on this Belize Howler Monkey Excursion helps to promote habitat conservation and fight against the endangerment of the local black howler monkey."
