 A Gem of Nature in The Heart of Belize’s Cayo District – Belize Botanic Gardens.

Where is BBG anyway?  Belize Botanic Gardens can be found 10 miles West of San Ignacio Town near Belize’s border with Guatemala. Belize’s beauiful Cayo District, nestled   in the foothills of the Maya Mountains has more to offer visitors than about anywhere you can think of in the world so when you come to visit the gardens, spend a few extra days seeing what Cayo has to offer. In addition to the gardens, there are Maya sites, caves, waterfalls, pristine rivers, and more. Visitors from Belize and around the world come here to enjoy the beauty of the gardens and for the sake of plant conservation. For your complete Belize Vacation, let duPlooy Travel help you plan your Belize Experience.
