“Very fun, although dampened by the weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Unfortunately, we picked a day that had periodic showers and downpours, so our experience was probably less enjoyable than it would have otherwise been. That said, we did see a wide variety of birds, as well as crocodiles and manatees. Unfortunately, we had a downpour while we were on the hiking part of the tour, and the howler monkeys were hunkered down. A nice bonus was lunch at the restaurant in Monkey River Village, with local fare and a couple of Belikins. We arranged our tour through Roberts Grove Beach Resort, where we were staying.

“Great Experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We booked are tour through our hotel Chabil Mar. Our guide was, Percy AKA Rambo. He was informative and had quite a personality. He knew many homeopathic attributes of plants in the jungle. We saw monkeys and crocodiles - one dang near in the boat! They had had more rain than usual this time of the year, so it was a bit muddy in the jungle. But we were a group of five couples, and everyone enjoyed this excursion.

“Monkey River Tour (Nitewinds)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Animals we saw: crocodiles, iguanas, howler monkeys, manatees, numerous birds, paca (gibnut),
Our boat of 6 passengers was spotless, and led by Evarista, who grew up in Monkey River town; he was so knowledgeable, that he even knew the latin names for the animals and plants!

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The monkey river tour was not worth the money. Our guide was good but not much to see. The only great thing about the tour was the lunch. Made in a small place and it was really good. Needless to say I was disappointed. Oh well
