Was your trip to the reef canceled for bad weather ?

Do you like to sleep in on vacation ?

Percy’s Afternoon Jungle Adventure is the perfect opportunity for those who want to start their Adventure later in the day. On and Afternoon Adventure (group or private) with Barebones Tours, you’re likely to see more wildlife and less tourists!!

Pick up Location and Time:

Placencia Village, 2pm at BubaWuba’s Smoke Shack and Grill on Harbor Side Dr North next door to Day Tripper Catamaran just south of Top Value Supermarket in Placencia. (Transportation to Buba Waba’s is not included in the tour cost)  Placencia Map

The afternoon ADVENTURE is the same price but shorter (1-2 hours depending on the time of the year) with less or no other tourists. Nothing is eliminated.  Percy uses his time wisely. Every part of the tour is shortened and less time is spent in Monkey River Village at dinner.
