We either had (my grandmother & neighbor) or still have a relative that keeps a parrot as a pet. The mural was not created to highlight that part of our culture, but to bring awareness to the species of parrots and its threats like habitat loss and poaching. Coexistence between wild birds and people is possible!

WHY BULLET TREE FALLS, CAYO: The village of Bullet Tree in the Cayo District was originally settled by loggers and chicleros. It was easy to select Jenny's Fast Food, a roadside restaurant as the new site after eating their salbutes (Mestizo dish: The fried corn dough topped with chicken, cabbage or lettuce, tomato, and jalapeño). While eating there you get to hear the sounds of parrots flying over and observe the numerous cyclists of the village.

Our signature river tubing is very unique, relaxing and affordable. We here at Jem Travels & Tours take great pride in creating new activities to showcase Belize. This tour is ... moreonly done by us and is slowly becoming a major hit. It is great for large groups especially. This tour begins at Bullet Tree River, near Paslow Falls and ends at our private property, Green Acre. It is approximately 3-4 hours of tubing. We provide tubes and life jackets, transfers, and guides. We also have tube coolers, that is if you want to have a party on the river! But what makes this tour really unique is that you get to see locals hanging out near the banks of the river and you get to see wildlife in the open such as birds and iguanas. Once you get to Green Acre you have the choice of doing your own picnic or we can provide food for you at a small fee. Whatever you decide, you can hang out at Green Acre for extra time if you like.
