Day 12: Belize Zoo and Cave
Our group got an early start on the day as we boarded a
speedboat and headed out to the mainland at Belize City. Our first
stop was the Belize zoo, where we were amazed by the native animals.
Some of the animals we saw were the beautiful Scarlet Macaw, the Great
Curassow, the feared vultures, the Harpy Eagle, Howler Monkeys, and the
ferocious jaguar. For our next excursion, we lathered up with bug
spray, put on our guide lights, and battled the mosquitoes through the
subtropical rainforest. Once we reached our destination, we hopped in
inner tubes and floated down the “refreshing” river through the dark
caves containing hidden waterfalls. Later tonight, we will attend the
island’s beach barbeque for dinner and enjoy a night in town as we are
nearing the end of an amazing two weeks in beautiful Belize.
