Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve and River Tubing
Located in Southern Belize is the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world's only jaguar preserve. Surrounded by the Maya Mountains and the towering Victoria's Peak, the Basin's 120,000 acres are also home to jaguarundi, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys and tapirs. The park offers a wide variety of hikes, including a waterfall hike where you can dip in the refreshing waters. Our knowledgeable guides identify the numerous birds as well as the flora and fauna of the pristine rainforest along the way. With over 290 recorded species of birds, this park is ideal for birders as well. As jaguars and other cats are nocturnal, it is not very likely that you will see them, but you will be able to spot fresh tracks. Bring your binoculars and trek through this rainforest of abundant beauty!
