Description
The Cockscomb Mayan Adventure Tour
The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary established in 1990 is world renowned for being the first jaguar reserve.

This "one of a kind" nature park was established as a result of jaguar studies conducted in the area by Alan Rabinowitz (aka “The Indiana Jones of Wildlife Protection”).

Besides being the home to Belize's largest cat, the sanctuary protects the headwaters of two major river systems and supports an abundance of hardwood vegetation and a diverse faunal assemblage.

Over 128,000 acres of the lush jungle is ringed by the spectacular Cockscomb Mountains.

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

This tour is ideal for nature lovers and intrepid travelers.
