The CBS guides are all locals to the Sanctuary and have been life long members of the participating communities. Each guide has been trained through the Belize “National Tour Guide Training Program” and has extensive knowledge of the Sanctuary’s flora and fauna. Our guides include but are not limited to Robert Panting, Geraldine Fermin, Kim August, Wallingston Russell, and Kade Salas.

Visiting the CBS

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.
