The Mayflower Bocawina National Park is located in the Stann Creek District at the base of the Maya Mountains, with over 7000 acres of pristine lowland broadleaf forest, waterfalls and evidence of an ancient Mayan City. It’s only 20 minutes away from Hopkins and Dangriga.
Inside the park is Bocawina Adventures & Eco-Resort which provides accommodation and tours. There’s also a restaurant that serves Belizean meals as well as international cuisine.
Also located inside the park is the longest zip-line course in Central America – The Bocawina Zip-line. Other on-site adventures include waterfall rappelling in 3 different waterfalls, night hiking and birdwatching (more than 200 species have been recorded in the area).
Some of the wildlife that has been spotted in the park include pumas, jaguars, howler monkeys, tapirs, spider monkeys, ocelots, pacas and armadillos.
