Monkey River Wildlife Adventure

Explore Monkey River by boat observing howler monkeys, coastal and wetland birds, iguanas, crocodiles and many other species of wildlife. With your experienced nature guide at the helm you will slowly weave through the maze of mangrove islands that hug the shoreline. If we’re lucky we may see the endangered Manatee as we head south to Monkey River. As the boat moves slowly upriver we’ll bird watch and spot turtles, crocodiles and iguanas. Soon it’s time to stop and hike through huge stands of bamboo and along jungle trails to view noisy troops of howler monkeys. This is a remarkable and exciting wildlife trip. On our way downriver the boatman will stop in the tiny village of Monkey River for a lunch and an opportunity to purchase souvenirs. (Tour not recommended between months of November to May due to the rainy season.)
