We stayed in one of the Cabanas. It was very well wrapped with screening and therefore no issues with bugs. We had a nice sitting area, small kitchen area, and 2 beds. No AC but there was a ceiling fan the size of an airplane propeller above the beds. We were given a ride over to the Zoo, had dinner... More

Stayed in the shared bunk cabins as a part of a school group and loved every minute of my time there. The staff is great, the food they prepare for you is delicious, and the place is kept clean and tidy. Loved being in the middle of the jungle savanna, and there were critters galore. Definitely returning to this place... More

The staff is super friendly. The food was great. There are several options for lodging but I stayed in the forest cabanas and was in heaven looking out at the forest 360 degrees around me. The trails right outside your door offer great hiking and you'll get to see a lot of wildlife.

I camped here two days. It was absolutely amazing. The staff was friendly. They served breakfast and dinner for a nominal fee. The profits go to support the Belize Zoo, which is a habitat for endangered Belizean wildlife and other surrendered animals. The zoo is small but you can spend at least 3 hrs there and it is VERY interesting... More

The view at the TEC is breathtaking. The staff is nice and friendly and they make you feel right at home. I took a group of students stay at the TEC and conduct Savannah studies and they all loved it. It made them feel connected with nature.

Everybody was nice and very helpful! Delicious food, amazing animals, great trails, and lovely cabanas! On my nine day stay at the Tropical Education Center, my group was able to become friends with people who work there (and we're still in touch!), hike the trails, see the zoo in detail, and play soccer with locals!

Cabanas were our shelter for one night on a tour of Belize. The night tour of the Zoo was exciting, and educational, punctuated by the howler monkeys' protestations. Toilets and showers are in a common central house. The central cafeteria offers good food and notes on what fauna has been spotted recently (fer-de-lance get your attention).
