Barebones Tours offers a variety of tours, specializing in custom tours around Monkey River. You can immerse yourself in the experience all day, half-day, or book multiple day tours customized to your interests - from jungle and river tours to see Howler monkeys and crocodiles to night tours, survival tours, medicinal tours, plus snorkeling and fishing trips and more. Percy Gordon, known as "King of the Howlers," is our most requested tour guide, and talks with the monkeys - you have to hear it to believe it! I am a resident of Monkey River, Belize since September 2011. I have been coming to Monkey River for 8 years and would like to share my knowledge with everyone to make their Belize vacation the best it could be. ~Craig Pearlman, President of Barebones Tours

Everything wonderful being said about Percy is true! Great tour and fantastic tour guide. We took the night tour. I never thought I would be standing in the pitch black in the middle of a Belizean jungle! It is definitely a must do tour!
