Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary & Jaguar Preserve

Covering 150 square miles of tropical rain forest, Cockscomb is the only jaguar preserve in the world. Experience the multitude of wildlife and the beauty of nature. The park also boasts the highest mountain in Belize, Victoria peak, which rises up almost 3700 ft into the sky.

The preserve offers a safe haven for the endangered jaguar.  Even though much evidence of jaguar can be found around the park, it is highly unlikely that an actual jaguar sighting will occur as these cats are extremely shy and stealthy. Other cats such as the puma, ocelot, jaguarundi and margay, as well as peccary, paca, brocket deer, tayra, otter and coatimundi, enjoy benefits from this sanctuary and have population densities difficult to achieve in most other locations. About 300 bird species call Cockscomb home including species like macaw, toucan and great curossow.
