Experiences in Placencia

This Belize river tour takes you to the South of Placencia to Monkey River, a birdwatcher's paradise

Much of Monkey River has been declared a Special Conservation Area , with howler monkeys and toucans in the forest, and manatees at the mouth of the river. We’ll take you up the Monkey River by boat. You’ll be able to hike over newly cut trails in the rainforest and get a close-up view of the many animals that call this fascinating river home.

Lunch at a local restaurant in Monkey River Town is an extra treat. Glide up the Monkey River by boat and hike over newly cut trails in the rainforest to get a close-up view of the Howler Monkeys, rare birds, crocodiles, and iguanas who call this fascinating river home.

Scuba Diving off Belize's magnificent Barrier Reef

The second largest in the world. Our PADI 5 Star Dive Center will take you on a two-tank dive in one of our dive boats that you’ll never forget.

A picnic lunch or barbeque on an island, will give you time to relax between dives.

We'll whisk you away to Belize's Barrier Reef (the second largest in the world)

And the many beautiful cayes nearby, such as Laughing bird Caye National Park. We’ll stop for a picnic lunch at Robert’s Caye, our very own white sandy island where the only inhabitants- a family of osprey – will greet you. There may even be time for fishing on your Belize snorkeling trip.

Our licensed guides will show you the wonders of the reef and the many beautiful cayes that dot the Caribbean waters off our white, sandy beach.

Whale sharks are the biggest fish in the ocean

Growing up to lengths of 60 feet (18 meters) and are gentle filter feeders that eat minute plankton and spawn . Scuba Divers and snorkelers get a rare opportunity to swim along with these magnificent creatures when they book on a whale shark excursion with Splash Dive Center, and we follow special guidelines and procedures to ensure safety and to limit any harm that may be caused to the whale sharks. Snorkeling is done on the surface in open water following the bubbles of scuba divers which resemble spawn and draw the whale sharks in.

Gladden Spit is the only place in the world where timing for whale shark visits is reasonably predictable and Placencia is the best departure point in the whole of Belize to enjoy these trips. They will there during the time of the full moon during March to June but may arrive earlier or later during that predictable time frame.

Experience Belize horseback riding through the magnificent rainforest
