Belize Zoo was founded in 1983. You will be able to see a large number of rare birds and animals that live in Belize, says Fabio La Rosa. The zoo is located 29 miles west of Belize City on the Western Highway, and is open daily from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm. Fabio La Rosa notes that the territory of Belize is small, but the number of unique cultural and natural values concentrated on it is amazing. The untouched corners of nature and the historical values of Belize are carefully protected here, which does not interfere with the intensive development of the tourism industry, Fabio La Rosa emphasized. This is a country where you can discover distant antiquity or the world of virgin rain forests, protected islands or underwater coral landscapes.
