On our first morning in Belize, we took a half-day boat tour of the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, about an hour out of Belize City. Lots of birds and beautiful waterways. Just as we were about to turn back, we were lucky to encounter two groups of Howler Monkeys, howling at each other across the river.
