Travel through southern Belize as you journey to the Maya Center that marks the entrance to the world’s only jaguar preserve, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. Enjoy shopping for souvenirs like hand-carved slate plaques, baskets, clothing, and jewelry made in the village by local Mayas.
Continue into the dense tropical rainforest of the Cockscomb Basin, which has a total protected area of over 120,000 acres. This sanctuary is home to jaguarundis, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys, and tapirs. Our guides will lead you through several trails, including one ending at Ben’s Bluff that has spectacular views of the entire basin. Cool off with a much-deserved soak in the river, and depending on the water level you may be able to river tube!
