Monkey River in southern Belize, Toledo district, is a coastal river that rises in the Maya Mountains and feeds into the Caribbean Sea at Monkey River Town. On the tour, I was amazed to see the plants, fauna, mangroves, and beautiful birds indigenous to the area. I couldn’t even begin to name them. It was the first time I had been in the Belizean Jungle — needless to say I was absolutely terrified, having grown up in cities all my life. The only thing that happened was being attacked by a leaf eater ant – those little buggers really hurt, but hey I recovered and soldiered on to see the Howler Monkeys. Now I’m ready to go further and explore other jungles in South America — maybe even a tour down the Amazon.
