Belize Zoo, Belize City Reviews

  • Visited on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Love that it's a haven for rescue animals. Sharon has done an amazing job with the animals and the facility. We took the Directors Tour which was amazing. Seeing the wildlife up close and personal was a once in a lifetime experience. The adoration they show for her is incredible. Definitely looking forward to another visit in the future

  • Great place to visit to see native animals of Belize. If you're from the US, you'll notice that safety guidelines are not the same! There were many opportunities that a less wise person could have taken to stick their fingers in the enclosure of a jaguar, so mind those in your party if they are the type of people that like to ignore "do not touch" signs. I also liked that each animal had a background of how they came to be at the zoo, and the writing format reminded me of Dr. Seuss.

  • Fun zoo to go to. Have some awesome animals to see. Of course the main attraction are the jaguars which you can actually come up and close with for an extra few bucks. If you decide to go that route, the staff will place you in a cage where the jaguars will put on a show for you and you can even pet the jaguars!

  • Great zoo with native Belize animals on display. The animal enclosures are well put together and the animals are spectacular. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. They offer encounters for a small fee to get up close with some of jaguars. I was surprised how many types of animals they actually had.

  • This is one of the best zoos in the world in my opinion. The animals are clearly well cared for, and the presentation is largely focused on light-hearted education. Some may balk at the high degree of human interaction with the animals, but it is necessary to keep in mind the animals are almost all rescues from situations where they interacted routinely with humans. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. There is a basic cafe and obligatory gift shop. Overall well worth the price to get in.
