River Tour @ Monkey River
Take a ride south to Monkey River village! One good hour ride will bring you right to this river that carries the same name as the village. Unsurprisingly enough, as the name suggests, the village is famous for the monkeys that live nearby! Charter a boat and go upstream the river, from here you will see howler monkeys, crocodiles, bocatura turtles and bird life.
Once back in the village, have a typical stew chicken, rice & beans lunch in one of the few eateries in this village of 300 inhabitants. Talk to the locals and learn how difficult it is to go for a date in this village (since everybody is related!) or hear the story about when Monkey River was a booming place because of the former neighbouring banana plantations.
