I had the zoo as a maybe when I was planning this 5day 4 night trip to Belize. We originally planned to go to the Baboon sanctuary; however, every local we spoke to had no opinion of the baboons but said the zoo was a MUST. So we went on a Monday afternoon in January 2022 around 2pm. It was pretty cheap $15USD each. The zoo itself was built in the jungle vs clearing an area and building a zoo. I loved that. When you enter there are walkways covered in vines - again real terrain not plastic! We spent a couple hours on our way back to Belize city from San Ignacio. It was really fun. Not a lot of people at all, probably due to pandemic and day of the week. Maybe 8-10 other people visiting the zoo. It was amazing, signs everywhere told the name, about how they got/rescued the animal, and cute little poems. Animals were close and some (tapir, monkey, toucan) even engaged with us. Really cute and fun! I wasn’t sure we really needed to take time out to do the zoo, but really glad we did

Great, personable, quaint little zoo. Small and operating on a budget, but these folks clearly care about the animals they are stewards of. Definitely recommend stopping by if you care about learning about the animals of Belize. I particularly appreciated their emphasis on conservation and sustainability.

This animal sanctuary had a wonderful selection of animals native to the area. If you are not from this part of the world, don’t miss it. If you are, it’s still a nice way to spend part of a day. It’s nicely laid out, and we spent several hours there, although it could be done in much less. They accept credit cards, take information for contact tracing, and have a very good and reasonably priced cafeteria.

The Belize Zoo is truly a special place. Believe every good review you read and everything you hear. It's that and more - nothing I could write could do this place justice, and the only one way to understand is to see for yourself. The Belize Zoo leaves a lasting impact on everyone who visits.

The mission, background and dedication of the Zoo and its staff are remarkable. More of a jungle sanctuary than what one might typically think of when they hear "zoo," here you will feel like you are exploring through the jungle and you will have closer encounters with the native animals of Belize than you would at any other zoo I have ever been to. Visit during the day and again at night for a once in a lifetime experience.

Your visit to Belize is not complete without a visit to the Belize Zoo.

How did I not review one on my favorite zoos in the world? What is so special about this place? Well I actually saw animals I have never seen before, and I have been to zoos all over the world. Even better, this zoo also is a rehab facility, so it really is the absolute best kind of zoo, which allows educational opportunities while also supporting the local wildlife and caring for animals in general.

We spent the night in a rustic cabin on the water at The Tropical Education Center (Belize Zoo Lodge) and went on a private night tour to see the zoo's nocturnal animals. Everything about the experience was incredible, thanks to Melvin, Juan Carlos and Edward who took such great care of us. We loved every single minute - from the nature sounds coming from the swamp and the delicious, home-cooked meals, to the up-close-an-personal wildlife experiences to buying all kinds of unique items in the gift shop. If you go to Belize, this is a must-do! It was the absolutely perfect way to spend our last night in Belize before heading back home.

PS: I had a bunch of photos to add to this review, but after trying three different times to upload them to TripAdvisor, I gave up.

We spent the night in the Zoo, and after a week in Placencia, this stay is what my six year old keeps talking about. Our cabin was over a swamp that had a crocodile (now named Joe) who'd swim over and lounge beneath the deck when you called him. There's a small, cool pool, wonderful food, and a dedicated staff who love what they do.

The importance of the staff cannot be overrated. Juan Carlos wakes up at five to go bird watching every morning. His enthusiasm is absolutely contagious. JC served as our concierge on numerous occasions, driving us to the airport and cave tubing for a fraction of other quotes. It feels good knowing that your taxi fare is going towards such a great cause.

We went on a 1.5 hour night tour for the same price as visiting our local zoo here in the United States. We fed the tapir and watched as Jose led the jaguar to roll over for his treats. Again, Jose's love of the animals was absolute. He'd been there for years, and hearing the backstory on adoptions, recovering from hurricanes, etc, were integral to the experience. Also amazing is walking through a zoo at night, standing by the cage with a flashlight waiting for a 100-pound predator cat to appear from the darkness. Too cool!

The only zoo my wife and I visited together. This zoo rehabs injured wildlife and releases them back into the wild after doing so. There are some exceptions to the releasing (ie- vultures that are blind and would not survive in the wild, a Jaguar who has been rehabbed three times because locals keep shooting at her). A must see!

So many animals to see at the Belize Zoo! It is recommended we visit the zoo by a friend who had been there. The small zoo was on the way from the airport to San Ignacio, so it was our first outing after arriving in Belize. It helped to lay the foundation for beginning to understand the wildlife and their needs in this sub-tropic climate.

Our last stop after being in Belize for a couple of months. Great home for animals that otherwise would not have a home.

My son described it as a sanctuary, not a zoo!
