A Zoo Built Just for Belize

Belize has beautiful wildlife, and while you’re at the Hidden Valley Inn, you will likely see quite a bit of it on the reserve. If you would like to get to know more about the local animals, or would like to guarantee seeing as many of them as possible, you can take a day trip to the Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center.

At the Belize Zoo, animals are kept in their natural habitat as much as possible, so a visit will also feel like a trip through the jungle. The extreme care to keep the animals comfortable also means that you can quell any fears about visiting a zoo where the animals would otherwise be unhappy. Here, you will only see animals indigenous to the area and develop an in-depth understanding of Belize’s natural flora and fauna. If you can, try visiting around dusk or dawn, where you’re more likely to see the animals moving around out in the open, rather than finding a place to snooze in the shade.
