The visitor center has maps ($5 US) and a few T-shirts. The worker was very helpful in planning out our hikes based on our difficulty level – which is Easy to Moderate. There is also a building with a jaguar display and information. There are...More
We were travelling on a budget and decided to walk from Maya Center to the Preserve but we were lucky and there was a couple driving a car and they took us. Our way back wasn't so easy and it took us over 2 hours...More
This was an amazing experience! I book my trip with Belize concierge Excellence ! They were amazing and had patience with me as it was my first time going on a long hike like this. I would fully recommend wearing shoe with grips! I didn’t...More
We enjoyed our time visiting the jungle here. The trails are nice and our tour guide Mario was able to identify every specie we saw. He knew every bird call, the type of ants we saw crawling by, and was overall just very knowledgeable and...More
This is such a nice park to hike. Really enjoyed going here with my wife and 6 year old son. We did the waterfall and loop which took about 1.5 hours to do. All of us had a great time. Be advised the road to...More
Getting there: we took a bus from Mango Creek/Independence going north. Any bus will do. You’ll get dropped off at Maya Center where you can purchase a ticket to enter but you can wait til you get to the Cockscomb office. Now here’s the kicker:...More
Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve is a beautiful jungle through which paths have been forged. Experienced hikers will appreciate the trail to Tiger Fern Waterfall. Be in good physical condition as the path is steep. After a climb that will make you hot and sweaty, a...More
Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve is a must stop on any trip to Placencia or Belize in general. Beautiful jungle with cleared and easy self-guided trails that range from easy to strenuous. Although some trails can be long and hard the views and experience are worth every...More

I wasn’t aware they had guided trails. You definitely need transportation from the highway to the actual park which is 6 miles. That costed us $20US one way. Inside we just asked which trail had the most bang for the buck since we wanted to also tune down the river before heading back to our accommodation. We did Tiger’s eye which is marked by a small sign, and it’s a bit challenging so have plenty of water and snacks. You’ll get views of the entire Basin at the top and two lovely waterfalls if you keep following the signs once you’ve reached the top. It’s another 20 mins down to the water falls. Hope this helps!
