Monkey Bay is situated in the Mayan mountains of the Belizian pine forests. Located near Carocol (Mayan Ruins) this wild life sanctuary protects many of Belize's prized icons such as the Howler Monkey, Jaguar, and tapir.
The food is amazing at the sanctuary and is buffet style dinning. The sanctuary is located near "Big Rock falls" which is a 120 foot water fall which is stunning, other locations such as the Sibun river which guests run to in the morning for a quick swim is also very breathtaking. The staff is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and are fluent in both English, Spanish, and the local Mayan language.
Overall great stay, great people, beautiful scenery, and a unique way to spend a couple days in Belize.
Activities such as zip lining, canoeing, caving, and jungle excursions are available.
One last thing, free WiFi available in the library
