Belize Tops Wildlife Adventure List

Belize Tops Wildlife Adventure List | World Interests | Scoop.it

Belize was listed first on the list of Best Wildlife Travel Adventures.  Of course, due to Cayo, where the wildlife is.  The picture is of the Twin Falls, taken from La Capitana pontoon boat on Lake Benque.

 

"Located on the northeastern coast of Central America, Belize is brimming with unique and exciting wildlife.  There are approximately 145 species of mammals, 139 species of reptiles and amphibians, and over 500 species of birds that call the Latin American country home.  Belize contains remarkable protected parks and coastal cays abundant with indigenous wildlife.  To see some of Belize’s rarest animals, such as Baird’s tapirs and scarlet macaws, a tour guide is required, but many exotic animals can be spotted all around the tropical paradise.  Swim with sharks and stingrays in the crystal-clear Caribbean waters, and make sure to visit the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, which is recognized internationally as the world’s first jaguar preserve."
