I stayed at the Black Orchid Resort to get a chance to visit the nearby Baboon Sanctuary and hang out with some Howler Monkeys.

There is nothing like the howl of these monkeys. They sound like dinosaurs growling in the distance, or are they nearby, it's often hard to tell! But it usually stops my breath, at least for a moment. And to be able to howl at them and them back at me, well, pretty cool!

I visited with a family of four, and loved watching the baby swinging around and then feeding the mother fresh leaves from my hand.

Duane, my guide, was so knowledgeable about both the flaura and fauna and had such a yearning to learn more beyond Belize! Share your wildlife stories with him.

Tour is 45 minutes
Bring bug spray

We really enjoyed this tour, the guide to the sanctuary was awesome!! The sanctuary itself isnt big and it was just a short walk to where the monkeys are. These monkeys aren't caged at all and are a small group (1 male with 2 females and a baby). Its hit or miss if you'll get a monkey to come down and it wont be the male since he stays up high to protect! Again Way to go tours is the way to go when in Belize!

Very interesting sanctuary; Howler Monkeys were great, and our guide was able to get some of them to come down in the trees and interact. Very low impact hike through rain forest was interesting in learning about the wildlife and the flora. The walk is not handicapped accessible, however, but the bus was able to drop my mother-in-law off close to the monkeys. She missed the hike and other information. That being said, they have a nice paradigm wherein the monkeys and other wildlife are protected, but the local people are engaged in alternative commerce to sustain themselves. Overall, very enjoyable

A great experience! But first, there is a time difference between the ship and Belize so we had to wait about 90 minutes for the tour to start. Our van driver was Waylon and he gave us lots of info on Belize during the hour ride out to the sanctuary. Our tour guide at the sanctuary was Royce who was passionate about preserving the native habitat. He gave us lots of info about their relationship with this family of seven monkeys, then led us on a short hike to where the monkeys usually are found. However, on this day the monkeys were further out arguing over territory with another family and were further out. The noise of the arguing monkeys was amazing. We asked Royce to take us further out and we got to feed a two-year old female who came down out of the trees. (Folks with limited mobility would not have been able to go further out.) After we got back to the sanctuary the staff offered a local lunch for an additional fee but we declined that option. If you want to get away from the routine tourist experience and feel like you are getting an authentic experience of Belize, this is the trip for you. We absolutely recommend it.

This is a small remote sanctuary area, I believe the protected area is quite large but we only walked and saw a tiny portion of the area, we were the only ones there at the time. We had a nice guide, Robert. He started by telling a bit of information about the monkeys, then walk a short distance into the tree/jungle area. We were able to see a family of howlers which was so nice to see them in their habitat. Robert also told us a lot about the local fauna. Bring bug spray!! Loads and loads of mosquitos.

We arrived at port way early because of the time difference between "cruise time" and "Belize time", but Cardinal was already out there waiting. The whole time we were waiting, for the other guests and the vehicle, Cardinal talked to us and already started giving us information. We were so lucky to only have a total of 8 people on our tour which made it very personal. We had about an hour drive and the whole way there Cardinal gave us information about anything and everything. The Howler Monkey Sanctuary was an awesome experience. Our guide there was very knowledgeable about the monkeys and answered all our questions. She was able to call some of the monkeys down to feed and between her and Cardinal they were able to have the male monkey "howl" back at them. On our way back to town, Cardinal gave us more of the city tour and took us to an awesome local restaurant for lunch.
This truly was an awesome tour, something we will remember forever and Cardinal was a HUGE part of that.

Despite pouring rain, port confusion with 3 ships in port (massive confusion); our guide Cardinal found us and gave us a wonderful tour. Very knowledgeable and personable.
We totally enjoyed our time with him and felt very safe.
Both Cardinal and our tour guide with the monkeys, spoke excellent English- no worries there. We were able to feed a female Howler monkey banana pieces.

We are traveling on the Carnival Miracle and we just did this excursion today! Everything about it was wonderful. Our driver and guide Aaron was excellent and have us do much information about Belize. Royce, our sanctuary guide, was the most pleasant man to be around. He knew the monkeys well and was an absolute joy. Shane, the owner, was also wonderful. After feeding the monkeys we had a delicious lunch made by Shane's 85 year old Grand Mother. Thank you Grandma, your stew chicken, peas and rice, fried plantains and Cole Slaw was delicious! And let's not forget their homemade 100% juices. We had the watermelon the line ginger. Listen you really can't go wrong work this place. I just can't say enough great things about them. Everyone should support this family owned and operated business! Thank you all for a wonderful time.

We went with our three kids, aged 3-8, and they enjoyed the nature walk part (slept through the ride there). The monkeys didn't come down as close as others mentioned, but they were obviously used to people and got close enough for everyone to see them pretty well. The Sanctuary is simple but the time spent was worth it.
Like some other reviews here, our driver was Cardinal and he absolutely made the whole thing. Well spoken and knowledgeable, obviously a local guy, and very accommodating. He drove us around a bit of Belize City so we basically got a short extra tour. Thank you so much!
