Along the way, participants will get to see Belizean wildlife, including crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks, giant iguanas perched on tree branches, dozens of colorful bird species, and, of course, troops of monkeys.

The tour includes lunch in Monkey River Village. The tour will also stop off for a short expedition through the bush to learn more about the plants and animals of Belize.
