Observe a wealth of native species of Belize at The Belize Zoo, a site that encompasses 12 hectares (29 acres) of tropical savannah. The facility aims to foster at-risk animals and educate the public on the creatures in the region. Learn about the animals and their habitats, including pumas, ocelots, and the harpy eagle, plus ways that their homes can be sustained. You can book a guided tour that includes the opportunity to get very close to, or interact with, the animals here.

The Belize zoo is incredible. It's possibly the most Incredible zoo I've been to. I didn't get a guide, just walked around on my own and it was still a lot of fun. From the guides I eavesdropped on, I'd say you'll have a hit or miss experience. I eavesdropped on the lady who founded the zoo giving a tour and she's incredible.
The Belize Zoo opened in 1983 as a result of the movie, Path of the Rain Gods. This zoo is a must do! You will find all sorts of Central American animals, hybrid crocodiles, harpy eagles, Jabiru storks and tapirs to mention a few. The Zoo is well-maintained, with a focused effort to ensure the animals enclosures are close to their natural environment. A very enjoyable experience.
