Although Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary was not on our official itinerary, our guide indulged me and stopped for about 45 minutes. From one waterside spot, we literally saw about 40 bird species in that short time. Several were life birds for me---including the magnificent Jabiru stork. I cannot recommend Crooked Tree enough---especially for birdwatchers. I will definitely return and spend a LOT more time there.

We got to the junction by public bus and then hitchhiked into the sanctuary. It is down a very long, boring, dirty, unshaded road for around 3 miles. It would be awful to walk in the heat! Most people hitch a lift with any locals that are driving past and stop. Buses only leave the village in the morning. We enjoyed seeing some birds on the lagoon but did not feel there was nearly as many interesting birds as the pictures show despite being in April when the birds are meant to be the best. It felt more like walking around a village with very little in it to see or do, rather than a wildlife sanctuary. Sadly the museum was closed the day we were there but it did look very small from the outside. We went to get lunch at the Bird's Eye View Lodge but they don't have a lunch service as such. They just cook food for guests but did offer us rice and beans for US S15 (four times more than we have paid elsewhere). Good place to go if you love birds and are patient to wait for them. Not a good place for people who enjoy lots of entertainment.

We used a local guide from Belize Tours Unlimited Lyndon and we had a one of a kind experience. We saw a Stork walking around as we rode horseback through the village. Our kids did not want to go home

A birdwatcher's paradise! Lots of trails around the island to see as much as you possible can. I recommend staying at Beck's B&B.
