We spent 4 nights at Howler Monkey, and from the moment Ed picked us up at the airport, everything was great. Ed, Mel, and the boys are wonderful hosts. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and made sure that we had everything that we needed.
Breakfast and dinner were delicious every day. You can't beat home cooking! Everything was always fresh, and it was great to try Belizian dishes. There is also an honour bar, with water, Belikin beer, juices and pop.
Our cabin was air conditioned, clean, and had a porch facing the river. There is a swing and a hammock for lounging. The room had two double beds, a full bathroom, and a loft that could have slept 2 or 3 more people. There was also an armoire with a small safe, which we used for passports.
The resort is located in a small village in the middle of a wildlife conservation area, and we were able to be up close with the Howler Monkeys in an area that the villagers have committed to maintaining as a protected zone. 3000 howler monkeys live in the area, and you can lay in your bed in your cabin and hear them howl. Very cool.
