Baboon Sanctuary in Belize - looking for someone who's been there....

Jump to last reply

I posted a few weeks ago that we were going on a cruise in January and we were considering do a tour to Lamanai. We still haven't made a decision yet - since the trip there is long and it may be risky to get back to the ship in time. Although, the excursion companies assure you that you'll make it - things can go wrong - flat tires, boats breaking down on the river etc....

So, while Lamanai is our first choice, I've come across a private tour that combines Altun Ha with the Baboon Sanctuary. This sounds like it may be a nice alternative, and safer when it comes to our time issues - but I can't really get a feel for what the Baboon Sanctuary is really like. Seeing that I've been to the Osa, some of our group has had a pretty up close and personal experience with Howler Monkeys. But at the sanctuary do you actually get to interact with the monkeys?

On Trip Advisor there are some reviews that mention the guides calling monkeys and them coming down and people getting to pet and feed them. This would make the trip there a definite highlight! Other reviews make no mention of this at all. So, if the visit is walking through the sanctuary and seeing the monkeys in the trees, while it's still amazing to see them and more so hear them- I probably would still take our chances with Lamanai. We'd probably see Howler's there too.
