A 35 minute drive towards the southern area of Belize brings you to the Jaguar Preserve. The Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve is the world’s only preserve of its kind, covering an area of 150 square miles.
This site was declared a wildlife sanctuary on February 26, 1986. Once in the park, we hike for approximately 15 - 20 minutes through well-established trails through the rainforest and on to the south Stann Creek River. Along the way you may see evidence of Jaguars and other mammals such as Howler Monkeys, Tapir or Peccaries (Wild pigs). The river itself is shallow and serene with a rich vegetation which offers a natural habitat for over 300 species of birds. Once at the end of a 45 minute tubing through greenery and jungle foliage, you will again hike 15 minutes back to your starting point.
