As the sun rises, National Geographic Quest anchors just a half-mile from the mouth of the Monkey River. This costal waterway stems deep in the Maya mountains and exist into the Caribbean Sea. Monkey River is home to many species of birds, reptiles and black howler monkeys. The afternoon was spent enjoying the tranquil Caribbean Sea around the island of Ranguana Caye, snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking and beach lounging before our day ended with a beautiful sunset.
