About this tour

Welcome, cruise-goers! Prepare yourselves for a fun-filled adventure at the Community Baboon Sanctuary (CBS), a hidden gem of Belize, perfect for family and friends looking for a unique and unforgettable experience. Don’t let the name fool you; it’s not baboons you’ll find here, but black howler monkeys, fondly referred to as ‘baboons’ in the local Creole language.

Start your day with a scenic, 45-minute drive through the lush Belizean countryside, dotted with quaint villages. From the moment you step off the cruise ship, feel the warm tropical breeze, and behold the rich emerald greenery, you’ll know this is going to be an extraordinary day. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide will pick you up and provide fascinating insights about Belizean culture and history along the way.

Upon arrival at the CBS, your senses will be awakened by the harmonious symphony of nature. The rustling leaves, the chirping birds, and the iconic howls of our resident monkeys. Established in 1985, the sanctuary covers over 20 square miles and is home to more than 2000 black howler monkeys, making it the highest concentration of this species in the world.

Don’t forget to pack your binoculars and camera, as you’ll have plenty of opportunities to observe these charismatic creatures. Whether it’s watching a mother monkey cuddling her young or spotting a dominant male showing off his impressive vocal range, these are moments you won’t want to miss.

After the monkeys, embark on a walking tour along the meandering nature trails. Watch out for the vibrant tropical birds, and keep your eyes peeled for iguanas, anteaters, and other exotic creatures that call this sanctuary home. Our guides are experts in spotting wildlife and will ensure you don’t miss a thing.

As the day comes to an end, relax during the ride back to your cruise ship, reminiscing about the unforgettable sights and sounds of the CBS. Don’t worry about the timing; we’ve got it all planned, ensuring you’ll be back at the dock with plenty of time to spare.

This unique and enchanting day trip to the Community Baboon Sanctuary is a perfect balance of adventure, education, relaxation, and, most importantly, fun! So join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Belize’s wild side while supporting a pioneering community-led conservation effort. It’s truly a win-win!
