The Belize Zoo

See the exotic animals you hear at night
This zoo in incredible for a few reasons: obviously, primarily for the animals there. Being in Belize, there are jaguars, ocelots, scarlet macaws... everything you wish you could stumble upon when hiking in the rainforest (if only hiking boots were less noisy!). Most noteworthy perhaps are the scarlet macaws, which are endangered.
If you like to research places before visiting, you MUST read, The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw by Bruce Barcott: it tells about the Scarlet Macaw, Belize itself, and Sharon Matola- the woman who started the zoo and fought to save the macaws a while ago.
If you're lucky, you might even be able to hold a boa constrictor (I did!) or meet Matola, who my friends ran into while touring the zoo.
Wild Colors
While I am not generally a fan of zoos I did give this one a chance due to its history of taking animals that would be otherwise unable to fend for themselves. While a bit overpriced, the zoo does offer an interesting layout, diversity of colorful creatures and a humorous and educational approach to zoo keeping!
