Our trip to Punta Laguna was the highlight of the week's stay. If you are looking for the standard tourist experience, this isn't for you. But if you want to spend time in a quiet preserve (that many natives have never heard of), this is...More

A great, off-the-beaten-path experience. In truth, a strange mix of activities, but we had a ton of fun. We ventured here because we wanted to see monkey's in their natural habitat (vs the local sanctuaries which I believe are more like zoos). Well, we got...More

It is a beautiful place. You can see the forest, the monkeys, insects, and have a walk with a guide. There is a small store with clothes done by the women of the community

This is one of the best little places to visit in the area, especially if you have plenty of time and want to take it easy. Watching the sun set over the lake and hearing the birds sing as night falls is a special treat...More

This is a fairly primitive operation in a Mayan village. We hired a guide who was very friendly, informative, and was able to lead us to where we saw many spider monkeys and even two ant eaters. A guide is not necessary, but I highly...More

Our tour stopped here. We each put on a harness (not easy to walk in). We first had a ceremonial blessing, then a walk in the forest. We could hear the calls of many kinds of birds, as well as the sounds of monkeys. The...More

Great place to visit and see wild monkeys. You have to pay for a guide but it still comes out to about $10 a person. Our guide was knowledgeable and skilled in animal calls getting the howler to respond to him. The trails are easily...More
