You walk in a path through the jungle with a guide. He takes you to a tree. Never imitates monkey howls. The mother howler and the babies come down and you can snap your pics. He mentions a little about the trees . But one...More
An excellent adventure for those wanting some one-on-one information gathering about the flora and fauna of the area. Wonderful experience visiting with the wild black howlers who are accustomed

We visited the Sanctuary on our way from the airport to our accommodations. It was my first adventure in Belize and it was Amazing! The guides (Robert and friend) are so knowledgeable about all of the flora and fauna. We saw a howler family and...More
As we walked down the road with our guide Robert, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It was late morning, and he indicated that the monkeys were not especially active during this time. He gave a fascinating tour of the trees and plants that...More
A quide walks you over to the preserve and then gets the young howler monkeys to come close enough to feed and take pictures. The best part, he can get the adult male howler to howl back to him by imitating his howls.
I don't think we saw anything resembling the building in the picture, so I am not sure if we were exactly at the correct place. We were charged $7 and then an extra fee for the guide, yet I read some reviews where people said...More
I was able to get the Baboon Sanctuary in combination with the Belize Zoo. I believe they are about 45 minutes apart. I didn't see that combo advertised but if you bring it up I believe most tours can arrange it. The Howler Monkey family...More
Thoroughly enjoyed our hike through the forest. Robert was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. It did not take too long before we had a troop of howler monkeys overhead and they came down to visit.
At a certain age, it's rare that one does something that is actually new. Belize certainly offered a lot of first-time experiences and the baboon sanctuary was definitely a part of that. Here, not only did a learn a lot about the plant life, in...More

In general, you tip 10% in Belize. The average Belizan makes $1.50 USD per hour. I'm a generous tipper and gave 40 belizan dollars. The guide was surprised I tipped so much. I'd say probably 10 Belizan dollars would be ok... More

Hi all, I'm developing a conservation-oriented ecotour, beginning in Belize. It will include the best aspects of Belize, with opportunities for snorkeling, jungle hiking, cave-tubing, kayaking and canoeing. It will take groups and individuals to island, rainforest and Mayan ruin experiences. But in addition to featuring the more typical tourist adventures, it will emphasize Belize's more hidden treasures like Sarteneja and San Ignacio, with opportunities to engage Belizean culture by...More

Baboon sanctuary (1 Reply)
Has anyone taken a tour to the Community Baboon Sanctuary? Who did you go with? Would you recommend this? We are traveling with a 15 year old who really wants to see some monkeys on this trip, and the rest of us really want a unique experience. Would really like to know if this would be a worthwhile tour.

I haven't been there but saw a short video someone posted on www.belizeforum.com. If you search there you might find it. It looked pretty cool, actually. They are more commonly known as howler monkeys. They're apparently known locally as baboons.
Itinerary advice needed (6 Replies)
Hi, I will be traveling for the first time to Belize in December for 8-9 days around the holidays and need some advice on my itinerary. We are a group of 4 adults who are very active. There are a couple of us who love the beach but a couple of others can get bored by it. So we want to do a nice mix of seeing wildlife (we love animals) and ruins and beach. My itinerary is: Day 1 - Arrive Belize City in the morning. Rent a car, then drive to see Altun Ha (is this worth seeing?) After...More

You can overnight at the zoo, then take an early flight to AC. Stay on either of the islands, and take a day trip on the water taxi to the other. AC has nicer beaches.
