|Junior the Jaguar|
We decided to go to the Belize Zoo to check out some exotic animals. I won't lie, the only reason I wanted to go was to pet a jaguar.
From San Ignacio, the Zoo is about half way to Belize City. It's literally in the middle of no where. You wouldn't even know it was there unless someone told you. The bus dropped us off right in front and then we had to walk down a dirt road for a bit. It's like walking into the jungle. We paid $30.00 Belizian dollars to get in and another $25.00 to get face time with Junior the Jaguar.

Either way, the zoo was a good experience. I really enjoyed myself. It was great to have a place where you can interact with wild life and still feel safe. It really is the best way to learn. However, word to the wise...it is a jungle reserve. Don't be stupid like me and wear shorts into the jungle. I am covered in bites and scratches. BUG SPRAY IS KEY.
For your enlightenment I have included the Belize Zoo website. It never hurt anyone to educate themselves!!
