  • The Belize Zoo may be the finest zoo in the world. All the animals are rescues and treated wonderful. Several of our guests have stayed overnight in one of their cabanas, enjoying a nice dinner at the zoo restaurant and an incredible night tour of the zoo. Since so many of the animals are nocturnal, this is a great opportunity to see the cats and others when they are active. Highly recommend.
  • Best zoo I have ever been to. Beautifully designed and conservation focus is great. Animals seem very content and well taken care of. Staff clear love the animals and care for them well.
