Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary:
In Belize, the government has set aside 150 square miles of rain forest in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve, which currently provides a protected environment for around 200 jaguars, the largest concentration of the wild cats species in the world.
The most important feature about Cockscomb though, is its trail network, the most extensive of any reserve in the country. The River Overlook and Warrie Trails are usually the best for wildlife. From the Rubber Tree Trail, there’s also the small chance of seeing the secretive Agami Heron on the banks of the South Stann Creek. The Jaguars use the trails too, as an easy way through the forest, so keep an eye out for footprints.
Monkey River Tour:
The Monkey River tour carries you on a 15 miles boat ride from Placencia to Monkey River village and the mouth of the Monkey River.
On the way, the boat will maneuver through the mangrove estuaries that line the mainland providing opportunities to see uninhabited cayes, Shore Birds, and the Manatees that call these estuaries home.
Upon reaching the mouth of the Monkey River at Monkey River Village, we take a local guide and start your cruise up the river. The river cruise offers opportunities to sight hundreds of different species of birds, crocodiles, iguanas, Bromeliads and orchids, and of course the Howler Monkeys form which the river is named.
Ranguana Tropical Island Experience:
Cruise out to the picture-perfect 2-acre private island from Placencia, Belize and spend your day in a pristine tropical paradise. Paddle board, kayak, hammock nap, sunbathe, snorkel from the shore, drink, eat and play beach games. Bullyʼs Beach Bar provides the music and libations while the staﬀ prepares a delicious Beach Barbecue. Donʼt forget to try the shotski at Bullyʼs Beach Bar! Includes Beach Barbecue lunch and activities. Does not include beverage
Garifuna Cultural and Culinary Adventure:
Long hailed as “the teachers of Belize”, your Garifuna hosts, dressed in traditional attire, will teach you about the history and tradition of one of Belizeʼs prominent ethnic groups. Youʼll learn about the many magical and beneﬁcial properties of the coconut and the art of traditional coconut harvesting, husking, grating and milk extraction. Your labor of love will be repaid many times over when you sit down to partake in a delicious Hudut, a coconut based soup with fresh herbs and the catch of the day. Your meal will be served with pounded plantains and fried ﬁsh. At the end of the day, youʼll learn the basic drumming techniques of the Garifuna parranda and punta rhythms

Snorkeling at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley
Shark Ray Alley is located at Zone D of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Shark Ray Alley got its name after ﬁshermen and tour operators realized that a large number of nurse sharks and rays would gather at the location to scavenge the scraps from the ﬁsh local ﬁshermen had caught. Fishermen would clean the ﬁsh they caught at Shark Ray Alley. Today, Shark Ray Alley has evolved into one of the most popular snorkeling destinations in Belize
