COMMUNITY BABOON SANCTUARY VISITOR CENTER AND MUSEUM
A Black Howler Monkey Sanctuary
The Howler Monkey Sanctuary known as the Community Baboon Sanctuary (CBS) was established on the 23rd February 1985 and is located on the northern coastal plain of Belize.
CBS is unlike any other protected area or wildlife sanctuary in Belize. The nature and functioning of the CBS is completely embedded within the seven Belize River Valley communities that comprise it and it is inextricably linked to the Kriol culture and history of the region.
Our trained local guides offer a range of tours. For the casual visitor there are wonderful nature hikes where you can expect to experience Black Howler Monkeys firsthand, wonder at the majesty of the rainforest, and learn about traditional rainforest medicine.
The more adventurous can enjoy night tours through the rainforest, where you’ll be able to experience the local wildlife when it’s most active. Or take a river tour in search of crocodiles, monkeys, and a host of other wildlife.
