We've now had the pleasure of meeting the extended family that represent the Baboon sanctuary: Royce, Shane, Laura, their grandmother who provides a superb traditional Belizean stew chicken lunch, and their troop of six howler monkeys. They are truly a family, including two human males...More

This was a very educational tour of the jungle and an up close view of the howler monkeys. The cost of the tour goes to the preservation of the sanctuary. Wear bug repellent!

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
