My husband and I visited Cockscomb basin wildlife sanctuary as a bit of a pilgrimage to the zoologist Alan Rabinowitz. We greatly admire his work with Jaguars at the reserve. The wardens Lutey and Dion were very passionate about the reserve and gave us lots of information and took us out on a night walk one evening. We did not... 更多
Get up early before the sun and drive to the trailhead, if you want to see a jaguar lurking in the jungle, listen for the howler monkeys playing in the jungle, while you're hiking to a waterfall, or a cave or go cave tubing, be sure you pack a lunch and take a filter bottle in case you get thirsty.... 更多
This place is a must if you are in Belize! Its not often you can walk through well maintained and signed trails in the middle of a jungle reserve, and here the trails are exceptionally beautiful. We went to a waterfall where you can swim, up a viewpoint called Ben's Bluff, and tubing down the river. Floating on the current... 更多
Tubing the river was fun and relaxing. Still need to paddle to make sure you don't end up in bushes or stuck on a rock but glad we went. Also make sure you make the extra trek to the waterfall at the end of the tubing. Worth it!
Spent the morning hiking in the jungle to a beautiful waterfall. The guide was so interesting and knew so much about the plants and wildlife. After a picnic lunch, we went tubing down the river. This was a very relaxing ride and the guide used this time to point out lots of the wildlife in the area. Be sure to... 更多
Using a rental car, my husband and I set out to explore the trails at Cockscomb Basin in search of a waterfall. The turnoff is at the Maya Center, where you can buy locally-made chocolate (delicious). There is an unpaved road to drive down to the preserve, but it is well worth the effort. Once you arrive at the preserve,... 更多
Had fun hiking and swimming in the waterfall pool. Hiking in the jungle is fun and mysterious. Would love to go back to hike the other trails. Only had time for Tiger Fern and Plane Wreck trails.
We had our own rental car and were able to find the entrance with ease. We stayed 2 nights which is much better than make a day trip. The accommodation is simple, you can make your own meals (bring the food), no wifi and electricity every now and then. But a great experience to wake up in the jungle. We... 更多
The drive into the reserve is via a Mayan art center where you pay your entrance fee is the gift shop. You drive on a dirt road for about 30 min before you get to the main visitor's center. We hiked the waterfall trail which was a decent 3 km, semi-strenuous walk to a waterfall that you can take a... 更多
The scenery was spectacular and the hiking much more challenging than we anticipated. It's not necessary to use a guide unless you want someone to point out things about the jungle during the hike. We didn't see much wildlife (a snake, a frog, Jesus Christ lizards, and some birds). There are benches along the way in the more challenging sections.... 更多
