Everything wonderful being said about Percy is true! Great tour and fantastic tour guide. We took the night tour. I never thought I would be standing in the pitch black in the middle of a Belizean jungle! It is definitely a must do tour!

We had a fun day with Alex. He was amazing at spotting hiding creatures. He found crocs, iguanas, turtles, howler monkeys, tarantula, and more manatee than I have seen on several past trips to Belize. A visit to Placencia would be incomplete without a visit...More
