We were privileged to have Rene as our tour guide. He showed up early! to picks us up from Placencia, and then stopped at a grocery store so we could pick up some extra supplies. Because things are still bouncing back from covid, we were his only clients that day, which made it even more special.

His knowledge of plants and the history and geology of the park is excellent, and he is also a good storyteller. The hike we took was beautiful and the perfect length for us that day. We also stopped for a swim at the waterfall, which was a lot of fun. The Stann Creek River was too low to do inner tubing - we'll have to try that next time.
After our hike, we had a delicious local lunch and then took a quick peek at the

While we did not see any wildlife (along with monkeys, tapirs, and peccaries, there are a bunch of cat species, including ocelots, jaguars, jaguarundi and pumas in the park), we did not mind. It's the dry season in April, which means there's a lower chance of encountering wildlife, and the cats are nocturnal anyway. But we're pretty sure we heard a cat warning us to stay away, which was exciting.

We definitely recommend Untame Belize and this tour. The fact that you are supporting the wildlife sanctuary is an extra bonus!

This was a wonderful tour. Edgar was our guide. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We had a great time hiking, tubing and swimming at the waterfall. Everything was handled so well from the transportation to the meal at a local stop to personalizing things for our interest. I’d highly recommend.

Jimmy was our tour guide and gave us one of the best tour of our lives. He picked us up from our air bnb and started telling us all about the trees right around our house. When we got to the sanctuary he took us around the river trail to see some of the wildlife along the banks. He was so knowledgeable and catered our tour to do things that we were most interested in doing and seeing. We finished the hike going to the waterfalls to cool off and take some fun photos. He finished the tour by taking us to a very local restaurant and getting us the best food we’ve had on the trip. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone that visits, especially if Jimmy is leading the way.

We recently visited Belize for our family trip (7 persons) at the end of march. It was a much needed vacation after all this pandemic chaos. Everyone was so friendly in Belize and we had a great time at our hotel in Hopkins. I want to thank Untame Belize who assisted us with airport transportation, selecting the right hotel and taking us on awesome tours or UnBelizeable as they say in Belize. We did the Cockscomb Hike and River Tube, our guides gave us a guided tour as we headed to a great waterfall and river tube afterwards. we also explored the ATM Cave and swim waterfall & Zipline at Mayan King. At our Zipline tour we got to eat the famous and delicious Rice & Beans, Yummy! I would definitely recommend using Untame Belize if you're planning a vacation to Belize Especially for your tours.

I had a wonderful experience hiking the Tiger Fern trail in Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary with my guide James L. He was very knowledgeable about Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary, stopping at certain points throughout the hike to show and explain to me what was in growing in the rain forest. He was also very helpful guiding me through the steep terrain on the hike. He goes above and beyond to make the experience for his participants unique and special. I would definitely recommend booking a guided tour with James L and Untame Belize Tours and Transfers. My hike in Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary was one of the highlights of my trip to Belize!

Was an absolute blast! My 8 year old boy and 11 year old daughter felt like this tour was the highlight of our trip to Belize. The service from our tour guide, Jimmy, was second to none. He was very informative and made the experience personal and authentic. Rodwell was also amazing. Was very responsive on the phone and via text to get everything set up and paid for.

I will for sure be sing Untame Belize for tours and activities during future visits to Belize!!

Our guide Wilson was so knowledgeable about the various things in the hiking trails and took his time to stop and show us the various plants and even wildlife at the Jaguar Preserve. At the end of the hike we arrived at a beautiful and refreshing waterfall that we enjoyed so much. In the afternoon we had a local maya lunch followed by this culture teaching us how they make delicious savory chocolate directly from the fruit. This was definitely an adventurous day in Belize I will never forget. Definitely a must do tour with Untame Belize from Placencia.

We took a tour with Edgar up to Tiger Fern trail and visited the double waterfalls. Edgar was outstanding in his knowledge and experience of the local culture, history, wildlife, and forest. This particular hike is likely his favorite too. No matter how tall the mountain or thick of the forest, Edgar will be able to show you a good time and help you learn a lot from the rain forest!

During our visit to Belize, my friends and I wanted to do a Jungle Hike with some waterfall swim. Therefore, we booked a Cockscomb Hike with Untame Belize from Hopkins Area. They picked us up at our resort Hopkins Bay. Our guide Rene, he was so friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us details of everything in the preserve and spotted wildlife for us as we hiked. We even got to view a plane wreck found in middle of the jungle! Thereafter we got to swim in a refreshing waterfall. This day was truly one of best during our vacation in Belize. Booked your tours with Untame Belize if you’re vacationing in Hopkins. They’re team is so awesome.
