For many, a must-see attraction is the Belize Zoo. The ride to your destination will be as interesting as your visit to the zoo. For about 45 minutes, your guide will fascinate you with the stories and facts of this small nation. Once you arrive at the zoo, you are in for a fun experience, whether young or old.

This may be the finest zoo in the Americas south of the US and it has been long recognized as a phenomenal conservation achievement. The zoo opened in 1983 after the filming of a movie called Path of the Raingods. The film's production assistant was left with a collection of semi-tame animals no longer able to fend for themselves in the wild. The opportunity to present native animals for both locals and visitors alike developed into a reality. Now these native animals live in their natural habitat but are monitored and kept healthy.

The theme of "a walk through Belize" takes you on a trail through the pine ridge, the rainforest, lagoons and the river forest. Throughout, you will safely view tapirs, all species of cats, including the jaguars, birds, monkeys, crocodiles and many other animals.

Along with this experience, add a tour of Belize City, the life pulse of Belize. Belize City is teeming with commerce and has adapted it's two sides of the river with a connection by the Swing Bridge. You will see the bustle, along with historic Fort George, a variety of embassies, consulate homes, and an area called the Beverly Hills of Belize. Your visit to the Baron Bliss Lighthouse will be accompanied by it's story. This and other landmarks from the colonial period will take you back almost 200 years.
