Chiquibul Nature & Wildlife Expedition Package

A GUIDE TO NATURE

(2 nights – 3days package)

Chiquibul National Park was originally part of the Chiquibul Forest Reserve, which was designated in 1956. In 1991, due to lobbying from conservationists, three-quarters of the forest reserve that did not have active logging concessions was re-designated as a national park under Belize’s National Parks System Act.

 

The Chiquibul National Park is Belize’s largest protected area covering more than 289,000 acres of protected jungle centered in the middle of the entire country of Belize.The Chiquibul’s landscape includes the Vaca Plateau to the north and to the extreme south, the Maya Mountains.

Doyle’s Delight, the highest mountain in Belize, is located in the park. The park is located on a layer of limestone strata, the largest area of protected karsts in Belize. The park harbors the Chiquibul Cave System, the longest known cave system in Central America.

 

The park has high biodiversity including the keel-billed motmot. It is found in Belize and its natural habitats are tropical or subtropical moist lowland forests.
