Surround yourself by nature that is rich in beauty and wildlife. It is estimated that over 80 resident Jaguars are in the area. Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is home to all five (5) of Belize’s cats: Jaguar, Puma, Margay, Jaguarondi, and Ocelot. Belize’s national animal, the endangered Baird’s Tapir also inhabits the Basin and over 290 different species of birds have been recorded.
