Belize Zoo

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 12:10 am

As we said we took a public bus to Belmopan which is Belizes capital after a hurricane crashed Belize City. Public busses in Belize are the old school busses from US. Got some food for the trip and told them we would like to get out at Belize Zoo. This zoo shows only local animals from Belize in their natural habitats. And it’s definitely worth to stop there. I have never been so close to a puma ( you may call it cougar…) and to the Belize national animal , the tapir.

It took an hour for the zoo and while we were waiting for the next bus to Belmopan a taxi stopped by. The driver offered a ride for 25 $BZ. Deal. Had a stop for lunch (tasty local food and much more cheaper than on the islands). He said he can give us a tour to Coracol with is the largest Maya site in Belize for 150 $US. Private car incl drinks and food, saves us 40 $US compared to the official tour offices. Deal as well and we’ll do it tomorrow. 

San Ignacio is a small town and sounds more interesting as it might be. But we got a wonderful cabana at Mana Kia camping ground for 35$US per night. Everything is close by, supermarket and restaurants.  Only the internet connection is so narrow I can’t upload pictures…..
