Belize City and Zoo Combo

Get up close and personal with entertaining zoo animals, then visit the main attractions of Belize City including St. John's Cathedral, Government House and the Supreme Court Building.

The fun begins as you step into Belize Zoo's lush 84-acre tropical savanna and discover its unique history. Founded in 1983 as a way to house animals used in documentary films, this national zoo is a popular Belize excursion and has over 150 animals - many of them orphaned, rescued, rehabilitated or received by other zoological institutions. The clean, spacious habitat enclosures allow the animals to live close to their natural environment while allowing you an up-close view of them. You will be introduced to the zoo manager and enjoy a brief introduction to the zoo. Watch spider monkeys at play, note the graceful walk of the deer and compare 21 different types of lizards. Several species of native cats call this zoo home, along with bears, lemurs and a variety of other exotics.

Once in Belize City you will stop at St. John's Cathedral, the first church in colonial Belize. This historical landmark was built in the early 1800s by slaves using the brick ballasts from ships. Take time at the stately Government House to examine the historical exhibits. At the Supreme Court building, look up to see the clock tower. This colonial-style structure was erected in 1926 on the grounds of the original courthouse that was destroyed in a fire several years earlier. While in the city enjoy a traditional Belizean lunch as you observe the daily life of locals.

Reserve your spot now for this delightful introduction to the animals of Belize and a good overview of Belize City that is sure to be the highlight of your trip.

tour of Belize city and river tour
December 30, 2022
Our meeting point was fairly easy to find. We waited over an hour and were then informed that the zoo had been destroyed by the recent hurricane and would not likely ever reopen. We were then given a choice of viewing some spider monkeys or taking a river tour. We chose the river tour. My husband and I were the only ones in an air conditioned van which toured the city limits and the only ones driven down a dirt road to a small dock where we boarded a 25' boat with 4 guides. Other passengers had disembarked at this point. I was a little nervous to tell you the truth but our experience turned into being excellent. We viewed iguana's in the wild as well as howler monkeys, an alligator on the shore , toucans , blue herons and manatee's. Our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a once in a lifetime experience:)

Loved seeing the Belize Zoo
June 20, 2022
Our tour guide Gareth showed us around the city before driving to the zoo- it's about 30 minutes from the city but you get to see so much of Belize's lifestyles and the people who live there. The zoo has many beautiful animals, some that you can even touch like the tapir or white tailed deer. Gareth explained the history of the zoo as well as some fun facts about the animals- we even saw leaf cutter ants just walking along the path. After walking through the zoo, we got to look around in the gift shop before getting back in the car and returning to the city. This trip was amazing and a great experience for the family. Thanks Gareth!
