My tour group enjoyed our tour of the Belize Zoo. It's a modest zoo with lots of native rescue animals. We were impressed with the tour and variety of animals. The zoo is small, but in great shape. The flowers and shrubbery are beautiful. The...More
Fun activity without taking up the entire day. Small zoo, but all the animals were easy to see and all seemed content as their habitat seemed very natural. Seeing the jaguar up close was the highlight of our visit to the zoo.
We fell in love with this place! The kids were in awe with the animals and couldn’t believe that it was there to help animals and not hurt them:). They loved that it was a sanctuary for animals and kept saying that “This is how...More
This place is beautiful and more of a sanctuary than a typical zoo. The grounds are beautiful, the staff warm and welcoming and the animals seem very happy. We watched the jaguars playing and rolling around, they actually seemed to be as interested in us...More
As a person who takes zoos seriously and is always skeptical of animals in cages, I was pleasantly surprised by this wonderful little zoo. Tucked away under the canopy of trees, these local animals have very nice accommodations and seem to be well cared for...More

They do take credit cards. The acfe food is fine - nothing fancy and not the greatest meal you will have in Belize, but a nice enough lunch (you are going for the animals, not out to lunch with friends for afternoon chat and/or cocktails. It's not about the lunch experience, it's about the zoo, animals and nature. With that said the lunch is more than adequate and fits the bill nicely. No need to bring your own or drive far away just for lunch
