We did the Monkey River Trip and my husband had a day of guided fishing from a base in Placencia; here's who we used:

Good Monkey River Trip guide: Jason Williams <wjason628@yahoo.com>

Good Placencia area fishing guide: Wayne Castellanos (dial 011 501 1st from US): 661.1151 or 634.2852

For hiking/night tours to Cockscomb Reserve, we used Gregorio Chun, who grew up there.

Don't miss an evening of Garifuna drumming at the Lebeha Center - we had a blast!

Happy trails!

in Hopkins, Noel Nuez, Hamanasi Resort, Charleton Castillo (land tours) and Happy go Luckie Tours are licensed Tour Operators. That means they have all the safety equipment and insurance etc. to function legally as tour operators. Noel Nuez gets my vote for snorkel tours and I think Hamanasi (always excellent) does a Monkey river tour.

Pearson, where in Hopkins have you decided to stay? We will be in Belize for two weeks in July, and I think we will be spending some nights in Hopkins or Placencia, but having trouble choosing our lodging.

Belizean Chik, both of those properties look lovely, but they are completely out of our price range. We are looking to spend $150 per night or less, and hopefully, closer to $100. I am hopeful, this is a reasonable budget in July...
