Located very close to the Belize zoo and we chose to stay here on our first night in Belize. It is nicer, cheaper and safer than in Belize city's hotels. You are situated in the middle of the jangle and the savannah with wildlife around you. Our Casita was beautiful. Though there is no A/C, it is comfortable, CLEAN, well-designed.... More

We stayed at the jungle lodge for 3 nights and it was hardly long enough. The small huts are great for a couple - you could say it's like upmarket camping. We loved it! Breakfast and dinner was included in the price and these were hot and fresh with a different dish (no choice) each night. We went spotlighting at... More

I stayed at the Belize Zoo/Tropical Education Center this past summer for the second time and they definitely did NOT disappoint! The jungle lodges are set in an amazing setting - next to a pond inhabited by crocodiles, turtles, fish, and a wide variety of bird life. In the morning you are awoken by the calls of a wide variety... More

The cabana's we stayed in were not my favorite part of the trip. They were clean, but not what I was expecting...at all. You are out in the jungle, so bug spray is a must. Be prepared for a warm night, even in March, and no A/C, just a fan.

Very good price for an excellent location, clean comfortable and spacious. Birds galore in the AM, stars galore at night. Night Tour of the zoo is a must. We have been to the zoo 5-6 times before but agreed that this night tour was exceptional. Food was fine and the dining room was quite lovely and adjacent raised platform to... More

Nice setting in nature with well marked short trails to walk on. The cabins are well cared for. Great breakfast and dinner. Very quiet setting- makes you slow down and look at the little things. Walking trail to the zoo. Helpful with driving you and your luggage to and from the bus stop or zoo.

We stayed at the Pond House 2 for 3 nights. My mom, wife, and 8 year old. The place was clean and spacious, had a fridge and hot plate, and great views of the pond and turtles and crocodiles. Awesome screened in porch. The meals that came with the price of the cottage (served in the cafeteria) were always good... More

First of all, I want to point out that the quoted cost of accommodations is per person, not per room. Somehow that escaped me until we were paying the bill. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Pond House 1 and drank coffee while watching the sunrise and searching for the resident crocodiles and turtles from our screened... More

A friend and I decided to avoid Belize City and spend our last night in the country at the zoo's Tropical Education Center- such a great decision! We were in low season, and at the time were the only guests. We arrived as the zoo closed on a bus and luckily ran into the last zoo worker who called us... More
