Triple combo tour! Unique experience with Animal Encounter included at the Belize Zoo!
Start at Nohoch Che’en Park and grab your paddle, life jacket, headlamp and helmet. Start with a jungle trail walk learning about the medicinal and traditional uses of the rainforest plants and trees, along a leisurely path through two dry cave systems and under beautiful primary broad-leaf rain-forest to the entrance of the cave system. At the riverside, you will gear up and get comfortable in your kayak in a quiet jungle lined pool. Paddle upstream against gentle currents to the very mouth of the cave system where the river flows up from underground. Then turn around and paddle downstream through a series of caves and as well as along the jungle lined open river for the home stretch. On this home stretch, which ends back at your starting point where you crossed the river, enjoy a beautiful outdoor float under the canopy of the rain-forest, with some sunshine coming down through the canopy. Follow or precede this with your Belize Zipline tour through the broadleaf rainforest. Nohoch Che’en offers modern bathrooms, secure parking, handicraft shops, and water shoe rentals if needed.
On our return to the city, we’ll stop in at the Belize Zoo. As the only facility of its kind within the Latin American and Caribbean region, the Belize Zoo showcases over 45 species of mammals, birds, and reptiles native to Belize. What better place to see so many of Belize’s widlife – all in a natural setting! Get up close and personal with the animals behind the safety barriers of carefully re-created habitats. Each exhibit is tailored to the specific species which it showcases by the use of all indigenous shrubs and trees as well as the inclusion of well landscaped ponds and wetlands. Featured animals our national symbols: Keel Billed Toucan, Tapir, Black Orchid and other favorites such as the jaguar and howler monkeys!
