Belize Zoo and Pook's Hill
Extended Belize Explorer

We arise to a wonderful breakfast at the Biltmore and then meet our guide and driver Denny. He takes to the Belize Zoo. A fabulous experience. Most of the animals of Belize are represented here. We experienced high fiving with a Jaguar and received a wonderful hug from the resident boa constrictor. Well worth the trip and I would recommend it to anyone visiting. Leaving the zoo we stopped for a lunch at a local restaurant. Very pleasant and service was good, Then on through Belmopan and Teakettle where we turned off the main road into the bush. A few miles along some rudimentary roads and we came to paradise, Pook's Hill. Wonderful thatched cabins, a great bar and meeting area, with decks and a dining area. Hiking trails, archeological digs on site, swimming holes, river tubing, and just great people. We explore the bush trails and visit the local swimming hole in the river. We enjoyed a huge meal and some of us enjoyed a night nature walk.
