Sarstoon-Temash National Park

Located in one of the most rugged areas in Belize, the Sarstoon-Temash National Park was established in 1994. The park spans 41,898 acres of broadleaf, wetland, and mangrove forest, and is designated as a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention in 2005. Tourists may not just pick up and visit the park whenever they want; permits and tour guides must first be arranged.

A variety of wildlife can be seen with a tour of the park, including jaguars, tapirs, ocelots, and the white-faced capuchin monkey. Additionally, there are over 200 species of birds. All of this can be seen on a guided tour of the park which will take place on a boat.


Located near the heart of Toledo District, 6.6 miles south west of Barranco, Sarstoon-Temash National Park happily welcomes travelers rooming in this part of Belize. However, even if you aren't staying in the vicinity, you are free to drop by to check out the sights. From this location, Punta Gorda is 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the northeast.

The park is located 13 miles south of Punta Gorda and is only accessible by boat.
