Something not right?

Description

Closest place to stay by the Belize Zoo. Good place to camp, brand new bathrooms with gigantic showers and covered picnic tables. Lots of people stay here in the cabins to do the night tour of the zoo. We went during the day and saw everything but the spider monkeys. Electricity available only in the office.

Latest Check-Ins

Paid $34.50Bzd for two people, two dogs, electrical and truck camper. Parking lot camping and run 50ft to plug in. Hot showers. Clean toilets. Nice trails. Some road noise but a fan covered it. A new swimming pool. Dining room with free water and coffee. Let them know if you want meals. Also have CabaƱas and a great tent area. Very nice people here.

Sylvia und Paul: You camp in the parking lot and You pay 17,44 Belize Dollars per person per night.

Beautiful property.

Truck camping is in parking lot which is a little too bad.

Great facilities ; toilets, shower.

Cold beer in bar. Didn't eat here.

Nocturnal zoo tour was fun.

Schotterplaz. kleiner Parkplatz 25m Stromkabel zum Waschhaus. Saubere Toilettenanlage warme Dusche. 17,35 Bz $ Wifi im Speiseraum

The facility's are very nice. Best shower of our entire trip. Hot, good pressure and private space that's dry to get dressed in. We never visited the Zoo but saw a nice amount of wild life during our 4 nights stay...still waiting on our mail in Belize City. Staff is very nice, and meals are responsible priced. No good food store near by so we ran out of supplies and ate there twice. Food was ok. Free coffee, tea, and drinking water. There are a couple short hiking trails we took our dog on. There is a pond with turtles, fish and a small crocodile named pirate due to him missing an eye. I highly recommend this place for a night or two. Camping in your car is as others said. We hooked up to electricity for no extra charge. We have 50 meters of extention cord and barely made it to the plug, but we did. 8.75 usd per person to camp.

Warm showers, good toilets. For power you need at least 25m cable.
They charge $8.75USD per person.

Just a note, electricity is available (no extra cost) if you've got a long extension cord and park as close to the bathrooms as possible (while still being in the parking lot). Our son had no problems with his tent, but he's got a cot, too. All gravel. A few bugs. Some fun trails full of birds.

Very little shade and lots of no-see-ums and Doctor flies when we stayed in late May. The bathrooms nearby were nice.

perfect place to stay when you want to visit the zoo, neat site with the best showers since a very loooong time, great paths to walk the dog, nice staff, wifi at restaurant

Big rig friendly. 20 mins to walk to the zoo. Wifi ok at restaurant.

Nice area, it's a pity that campers must stay in the parking lot and are not allowed to enter the campground. Very clean sanitaries with hot showers! WiFi only in the restaurant available. 17.44 USD/night for two.

RV type vehicles must now stay in the car park which is not very picturesque and without much shade. Price is now Bel$ 16. The showers and toilets are very good with hot water.

17.44bzd per person to camp + 18bzd per person for dinner. Facilities good but only tents (no vehicles) allowed on the grass now. We had to put our roof tent up in a new gravel car park.

We rented a cabana for 151B$ for a dopple inclusive Dinner and Breakfast, camping is no good anymore for tents. The have just made the parkinglot new with gravel, but it is very well possilble 17/person

Nice grassy lawn for camping, but beware of big spiders! Clean, hot showers and large sinks for washing dishes. Breakfast and dinner was also available ($6US and $8US, respectively).

Great spot. Very quiet. We stayed here after tubing.

Beautiful peaceful meadow area with many animals

Price: $ 11.00

Very nice facility, good to stay overnight. Toilets and showers available. WiFi. Quiet. overnight B $ 10 -

From the north, turn left just before the Belize Zoo, left, well signposted.

Closest place to stay by the Belize Zoo. Good place to camp, brand new bathrooms with gigantic showers and covered picnic tables. Lots of people stay here in the cabins to do the night tour of the zoo. We went during the day and saw everything but the spider monkeys. Electricity available only in the office.

Everything you would expect from a nice place to stay : covered picnic tables; clean new bathrooms; powerful hot showers; (Very slow) free WIFI at the Office; some beautiful trails.

just a couple of km's from the Zoo which costs $ 30 BZ entrance fee per person, however the money is worth it. Close to the Zoo is another, beautiful place to stay, the Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, however, they ask BZ $ 15 / person plus tax.

(Originally $ 10.90 BZ / person)
