My colleague and I accompanied 14 college students to Belize for two-weeks. MBS seemed conveniently located to a few things we were interested in doing (Community Baboon Sanctuary, Belmopan, and the Belize Zoo), so we arranged to stay at MBS a few days. Once you added up costs, including meals and programs, we were pushing the limits of our budget.... More

This is an amazing place to stay while doing research, community service, or exploration of Belize. They can arrange for any experience that you can dream up; the food is great; the personnel are accommodating and amazing. Accommodations range from basic to comfortable, but all are very clean, comfortable, and bug-free. The focus is on sustainable living featuring recycling, composting,... More

From the outside Monkey bay just appears to be a campsite, but on the inside its a very special place. The staff are fantastic-very kind, welcoming, and curious to learn from you. They want you to enjoy your experience and do their best to ensure an amazing time. When reading reviews about the food, I had to try it out... More

Monkey bay was an amazing place to stay during our research trip to Belize. The hospitality was unforgettable. I was staying in the far back cabin facing the entrance to the trail. The trail system here is completely incredible and is planned to be expanded upon. A friend and I actually hiked the full trail down to the Sibun river... More

I just led a group of 14 students to Belize and we stayed with Monkey Bay. As someone who has led over 20 groups to Belize before, this was by far one of my best experiences there and it was because of what a wonderful job Monkey Bay did while we were there. The food was beyond excellent, in a... More

I stayed at Monkey Bay for roughly 2 weeks whilst on fieldwork with university. The chicken bus goes straight through from Belize City via Belmopan (approx 2 hours, but 30$BZ cheaper than a taxi), and we could hop off right outside Monkey Bay - perfect! Luckily, I managed to shotgun the room by the wash facilities which was a lot... More

No monkeys at Monkey Bay, but an excellent place for the weary traveller to take a break. Clean rooms and very friendly staff will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time here. All the wonderful fruit trees are labelled. This is close to living nearer the earth. Dining is available on-site, with two restaurants and... More

I came to Belize to volunteer at a local government school down the street from Monkey Bay. I had no idea what to expect, but I was thrilled with my experience. First off, the food is some of the most fresh and delicious food I have ever eaten. I fantasize about wishing I could eat it every day. The staff... More

Not only was the staff at Monkey Bay incredible, but the accommodations and services were awesome. I stayed here for a week during a volunteer service trip at the local school, and could not have been more happy to come back to Monkey Bay at night after a long day of work. The food was absolutely amazing, as well. It... More

Our high school has chosen Monkey Bay as our base for ecological and cultural explorations in Belize. We bring 25 ninth graders for an 8 day trip in February. We were met at the airport by friendly and informative guides, the bedrooms, showers and bathrooms were all clean and safe. The meals were always nutritious with many options, and they... More
