Belize Zoo, Belize City Reviews

  • Terrific experience at the zoo! All the animals are native to Belize, so if you didn't get to see that elusive animal in the wild, this is your place. We were joined part way through our day by one of the zoo keepers who told us all about each animal, and even called many of them out of their comfy hiding places so we could see them up close. He taught a few of the jaguars and other animals tricks, so we were educated and entertained! When we were originally planning out the activities to do in Belize, we thought we would pass on the zoo; after all, we've been to many zoos before, right? But, when we got to Belize, we heard other tourists talk about how much they liked the zoo, so we decided to go. Best decision!!! It is a must see attraction in Belize!

  • One of the most fun zoo experiences I've ever had! The animals all seem to be thriving in their habitats, from what I understand almost all of them were rescued or born in captivity. Many of them seem to really enjoy interacting with humans, I assume because of their experience being rehabilitated or in some cases, former lives as pets. It's cool to be able to get so close to animals that appear bright and full of vigour.

  • Great experience! Easy to view the animals, tons of cats, and for a good cause. Highly recommend. Takes about 1.5-2 h to see everything, and that was with two toddlers (carry and walking). Wear long pants/sleeves as there are bugs.

  • I don't usually like zoos, but The Belize Zoo is quite unique. Animals that very unique and an environment that is quite in the middle of nature, not sterile and uninviting like so many others. If you can spring for the $50 tour, it's worth it. The guide feeds the animals as you go so you can see then up close. Good stuff!

  • Very cozy hand-made forest too. Not like any zoo in big cities. Must visit if you love nature and animals. Ocelot and other cats are perfect!)
