Post-project application: partner locations and existing tourist routes

  • The TEC at Belize Zoo and Hillbank will be promoted as destinations for ecotourists in savanna areas (green) that are accessible (1-1.5 hrs) by road from the main tourist entry points at the International Airport and Belize City's Cruiseship Terminal.

  • With new trails and visitor attractions, both sites will become attractive overnight stops, enhancing the existing popular tourist route from Crooked Tree Bird Sanctuary - Lamanai Archaeological Site - Baboon Sanctuary - Belize Zoo.
