Just outside the capital city of Belmopan, this small, but fascinating zoo, is well worth the trip. Having visited several zoos in the states, this was by far, the best I have experienced. The animals are kept in their natural habitat, allowing visitors great views and exceptional experiences. Many of these animals have been placed in this zoo after injury and have been rehabilitated but unable to return to the wild. Definitely worth a day trip to this unique location.
Whether you are arriving to Belize via cruise, staying on the mainland or nearby island, the zoo is a relatively easy daytrip by rental car or tour guide. Research options as there are many package deals that include visiting local ruins, waterfalls and jungle tours.
