The Belize zoo is incredible. It's possibly the most Incredible zoo I've been to. I didn't get a guide, just walked around on my own and it was still a lot of fun. From the guides I eavesdropped on, I'd say you'll have a hit or miss experience. I eavesdropped on the lady who founded the zoo giving a tour and she's incredible.
The Belize Zoo opened in 1983 as a result of the movie, Path of the Rain Gods. This zoo is a must do! You will find all sorts of Central American animals, hybrid crocodiles, harpy eagles, Jabiru storks and tapirs to mention a few. The Zoo is well-maintained, with a focused effort to ensure the animals enclosures are close to their natural environment. A very enjoyable experience.
