Riverine

Sanctuary Belize encompasses 9 miles of the Sittee River, a diversified habitat where fresh and salt water mingle to create a haven for wildlife. Manatees, rays and barracuda cruise its deep river waters, while inquisitive turtles, egrets and Morelet's crocodiles patrol the surface. All for our residents to experience and enjoy up close and personal.

Tropical
Savannah

The Caribbean's response to the Serengeti Plains of Africa, Sanctuary Belize's 2,000-acre stretch of sub-tropical savannah serves as home to a diverse array of rare plant species. Wispy grasses, scattered shrubs and thick-barked solitary trees protect a variety of animals, tropical birds and amphibians that take refuge in this unique landscape.

Belizian
Jungle

Sanctuary Belize's 10,000-acre private wildlife reserve is comprised of tropical broadleaf jungle featuring immense cohune palms, cedar, ceiba and mahogany trees that share the jungle floor with ferns, vines and orchids. Here flourish some of Belize's most picturesque rivers and waterfalls, as well as jaguar, tapir, ocelot and howler monkey. Wildlife enthusiasts, welcome.

Caribbean
Marine

Several coastal ecosystems thrive in the Caribbean waters that kiss Sanctuary Belize - among them ocean lagoons, mangrove marshlands, bays and tidal wetlands rivaling the Florida Everglades. These spectacular habitats serve as nurseries for tropical fish and amphibians, while offering protection against tidal erosion.

Coral Reef

Just off the shores of Sanctuary Caye, our five-acre private island, healthy vibrant coral reefs provide a stunning underwater home to a dazzling array of tropical fish, sea turtles, eagle rays and migrating whale sharks. Just a short boat ride away, the Belize Barrier Reef - the world's second largest - beckons scuba and snorkeling enthusiasts to enjoy a diving experience like no other in the Western Hemisphere.
