Howler Monkey Sanctuary Shore Excursion from Belize City

2 travellers
    What to Expect
    The Community Baboon Sanctuary is located 30 miles northwest of Belize City and is a unique conservation effort bringing together 8 villages to protect the population and habitat of Belize's Black Howler Monkey, affectionately called "baboons" by the locals. The sanctuary consists of approximately 20 square miles along the Belize River and embodies a combination of dense jungle, pasture, farmland, and small village life.

    The Howler monkey tour starts with a drive through the old capital Belize City, then onto to the northern highway to the “cut off” of Burrell Boom Village. Here you will then travel to the village of Bermudan Landing passing through scenic eco systems. While travelling along the narrow Boom road you can spot the monkeys in the trees. Upon arriving at our final destination, we’ll gear up to hike some trails where we will be viewing the monkeys in the trees in their own habitats. The sanctuary is not a zoo, and you'll see these monkeys in their natural habitat of the Belize Rainforest.

    We really enjoyed this tour, the guide to the sanctuary was awesome!! The sanctuary itself isnt big and it was just a short walk to where the monkeys are. These monkeys aren't caged at all and are a small group (1 male with 2 females and a baby). Its hit or miss if you'll get a

    30- 50 min drive to the sanctuary meanwhile getting a tour of the city and country side of Belize. Short walk into the natural habitat of the monkeys. Its refreshing to be able to see the nature around you without it being clearly paved and behind any bars or fencing. We had a

    We went with our three kids, aged 3-8, and they enjoyed the nature walk part (slept through the ride there). The monkeys didn't come down as close as others mentioned, but they were obviously used to people and got close enough for everyone to see them pretty well. The

    Very interesting sanctuary; Howler Monkeys were great, and our guide was able to get some of them to come down in the trees and interact. Very low impact hike through rain forest was interesting in learning about the wildlife and the flora. The walk is not handicapped
