I had the honor and privileged of meeting Matthew Miller the founder of Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. He and his wife are early pioneers in ecology and environmental studies determined to protect their wildlife sanctuary along the highway to Belmopan and Sibun river in Belize. As a not-for-profit education and training center Monkey Bay is well known for its early... More

Matthew could not have been nicer to our kids - they are still talking about the animals a year later. Excellent adventure, even though they had flown all night. Such kindhearted people - even returned them to the Savanna Guest House afterward.

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
