Monkey River winds its way through the jungle from the Maya Mountains to the sea. Teeming with birds, fish and the howler monkeys that gave name to the river, this is an easy way to see some of the bounty of this unique ecosystem. On the one hour trip from Hamanasi to Independence Town you will pass through large banana plantations and several small traditional Mayan villages. Near Independence you will board a small boat that will take you through a lagoon and coastal waters where you may spot manatees, dolphins and other sea life.

Hamanasi helped introduce my family to the Garifuna & Maya people of Belize. Everything is so close – the mountains, caves, waterfalls, animals, ruins – this is such a peaceful country with rich culture and a people that cares about the environment. What a hidden gem! Thank you!
Just keep doing what you’re doing… The Mayan tour history was incredible; the guide was extremely knowledgeable and profoundly connected to his heritage.
Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.
We appreciate that Hamanasi is able to provide exceptional experience for visitors while working to maintain the wonder of Belize.
