On our way from Coruzal to San Ignacio we dropped in at Belize Zoo, possibly the cutest zoo going around. It opened in 1983 after a number of native animals were 'left over' from a nature documentary and now continues to care for these animals and other native animals that have been mistreated or abandoned.

A real mixture of peoples with a distinct West Indian Caribbean feel. Resort is on the Belize river which is very high due to a lot of late rain before we ...
