monkey river village
Ride the river. Hike the jungle.
Located at the mouth of the Monkey River, the village is bordered on the west by riverine forests and is a great place for experiencing the Belizean jungle. 

There are many river tours to choose from which gives you a chance to see beautiful riverine forests and wildlife in the comfort of a skiff. As you glide by, iguanas dive into the water, troops of howler monkeys race through the trees; birds dart from tree to tree; and crocodiles sun along the banks of the river. 

If you’re feeling more adventurous, take a hike through the jungle; where you’ll come across herbal medicines, tarantulas, crocodiles, snakes, howler monkeys, and various birds including toucans and oropendulas. If lucky, you may spot a deer, tapir, or even a jaguar.
