Belize – Part Two

12 Jun

When we last saw the intrepid Tortas they had sweet talked their way across the Belize boarder not knowing if they would be allowed back into Mexico. No drama here!! (Belize – Amazing Race Style)

The newly installed Belize sign.

First things first, we are indeed home in Bacalar. Crossing back into Mexico was easy-peasy. No questions asked. Alice got a 180 day visa, viola.

Peacock Palm on Caye Caulker is common in Belize.  They are extraordinarily.

During our three day visit to Belize, we took a tour of the sites which included the Belize Zoo. I had heard good things about it and was not disappointed. It is worth adding to your bucket list of things to do in Belize. For a very small zoo, that’s saying a lot.

It looks like we were close because we WERE.

Belize Zoo

“A non-governmental, non-profit organization focused on wildlife conservation through wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education.”

Rarely seen in the wild tapir. National animal of Belize.

This macaw was putting on quite the show. He came out of his cage to say hi.

The zoo provides educational programs to thousands of Belizan children and educators annually. Teaching children about the animals of their country gives them an understanding of the environment and why it is important to take care of it.  Making even a small donation to support the zoo will make a huge difference.

    I am not a zoo person. That being said, the Belize zoo was awesome. Right up there with our zip lining adventure.

    I’ve always been in two minds about zoos but there’s no doubting their conservation role.

      Me too. TBZ was like being in a big garden. Most of the animals were rescued and living a good life.

    I saw red macaws flying wild in Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula. Stunning!

      That would be cool to see. We see mostly orioles, and parrots that are colorful around our house.
