Your tour begins with a scenic boat ride from Ray Caye, cruising through the vibrant, crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. This journey offers a wonderful chance to spot some of Belize’s diverse marine life.

As we approach Monkey River, we’ll stop at the river mouth to pick up our local guide from Monkey River Village. This ensures you get the most authentic experience and insights about the region.

Upon reaching the mainland, we’ll make our way to Monkey River, a meandering waterway in Southern Belize celebrated for its awe-inspiring natural beauty and unique wildlife. Here, nestled amidst dense jungles, you’ll find the black howler monkey, for which the river is named. Often, their distinctive calls can be heard even before you catch a glimpse of them among the treetops!

Beyond the monkeys, keep a lookout for sun-basking iguanas, elusive crocodiles, and a plethora of bird species dancing through the tree canopies. With a bit of luck, you might even spot a manatee or a dolphin!

From the river bank, our knowledgeable guide will lead you on a short and easy hike through the lush rainforest, sharing insights about the diverse flora and fauna you come across. Discover the myriad ecosystems of Belize, the medicinal properties of its plants as used by local indigenous communities, and understand the critical importance of conserving these mesmerizing habitats.

Post-hike, indulge in a traditional Belizean lunch at Monkey River Village. While the village’s residents have a reputation for warmth, the authentic Belizean cuisine truly stands out, giving you a genuine taste of Belize’s cultural legacy.

We’ll then make our way back to the resort, where you can soak in the tranquillity of the ocean once again. The Monkey River Tour from Ray Caye Island Resort promises a deep dive into nature, wildlife, and local culture – an experience you’ll cherish forever.
