I'm not really understanding how anyone can give this less than 5 stars. Bunch of babies who can't leave their air conditioned houses or cars to live life? This place was amazing!! We booked one night on our way to SI and wish we had booked a few! Cozy cabin with extra attention to details; screened porch with hammock, chairs,...

We thought it would be interesting to stay at the Tropical Education Center (TEC) and visit the Belize Zoo on a nocturnal tour....but little did we expect that this visit would turn out to be hands-down our favorite experience in Belize. We were warmly greeted by Diana Perez and the rest of the staff - we loved our forest cabanas...

We arrived late Evening but were very welcomed. Even our dinner was waiting for us. Quiet place, good service, capybaras walking around. We like our staying there. And of course, the Zoo is in a walking distance.

After seeing the place I was sorry I just booked for 1 night, I would have stayed longer if didn't have other stuff booked. The place is fantastic, not just the cabanas but the dormitory as well are well kept. Staff was very helpful and friendly, had the time to share a story and show me around the different trails....

We stayed for one night at the TEC in a forest cabana and had a lovely experience. The room is just large enough for a double and a twin bed, and has a porch with chairs to lounge in. We loved that only screens and curtains separated us from the outdoors. The bathrooms are very clean and there is hot...

We went to the Zoo and the staff was not only friendly but very helpful. Though it is a small zoo it was well maintained and the animals had a large area that was clean and taken care of. By accident we ended up staying at the Tropical Education Center. Best accident ever. The lady was so welcoming and friendly....

We stayed in Pond house 2 at the TEC. Containing a large porch overlooking the pond, the large accommodation was totally screened. There was a queen bed and twin bed on one side, and two twin beds on the other. A kitchen and bathroom with shower separated the sleeping areas. There was a 4-cup drip coffee maker, dish soap, dry...

Stay at the eco lodge and take the night tour of the zoo. The lodge is a working research facility and the zoo makes a serious contribution to the environmental research and preservation effort in Belize. The lodge rooms are nice, the food is solid and the staff is amazing.
