Founded in 1983 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. Watch spider monkeys at play, note the graceful walk of the deer and compare 2 different types of crocodiles and several species of native cats who call this zoo home. Hike along and see the wild pigs, the national animal of Belize, and a variety of other exotic animals.
After the zoo experience you will continue to a local restaurant near the port for a delicious, homemade lunch of typical Belizean food that includes stewed chicken, rice, and beans and fried plantain.
