We start from the end of the Placencia peninsula by boat, and after a 45-min boat ride through the lagoon and mangrove forests, where we have the opportunity to see a myriad of wildlife including manatees, dolphins, crocodiles, various species of aquatic birds and other marine life.
Upon arrival at Monkey River village where the river meets the sea, our knowledgeable guide will take us up the river for about half a mile before we begin our terrestrial trek. During this journey through the coastline tropical forest, we have the opportunity to observe howler monkeys, iguanas, the great keel-billed toucan, more crocodiles and other fascinating wildlife species.
Then it’s lunchtime at a spicy local Monkey River Village restaurant (bring an additional US $10 for this tasty lunch). Following lunch, we head back across the lagoon and look out for more dolphins and manatees, before landing safely back in Placencia.
