What is the first thing you should do if you go to Belize? Stay at the Belize Zoo. It's only a hop, skip and a jump from the airport. And they have these hidden and very affordable cabanas nestled on the property.
The next morning you can spend at the Zoo. Before you embark on the rest of your journey through Belize. You will see Jaguars.
But the first thing we saw were these non-residents all in a row.
This Scarlet Macaw was so curious about us. In fact all of the rescued zoo animals are tourist friendly. I love this photo.
The birds and other animals have huge natural enclosures.
A sleepy and muddy Tapir
A Collared Aracari. He hopped along his merry way as we left his enclosure. He followed us as long as he could.
A Keel-billed Toucan. He was trying to eat my camera! I love this photo too. Even with the bars.
A beautiful Ocelot. She trotted right up to us.
Her markings are amazing. For more on the Belize Zoo click here And if you enjoyed this post be sure to follow me in my sidebar. I hope you won't regret it!
