Sarstooth National Park

A dense jungle and protected refuge for nature, the Sartooth National Park is the prime location for any adventure to try and catch a glimpse of Belize wildlife. With a wild coast that quickly turns into dense forests and underbrush covered floors, you can expect a wide range of creatures to be prowling about.

Sartooth National Park may not be the easiest place to reach, but for nature lovers it may be worth it. The national park is one of the best places to bird-watch, and is actually a place where you might spot a wild jaguar. However, with no amenities and more for researchers than casual hikers, the average tourist might be better off with some of the other natural attractions in the Belize.


Sarstooth National Park is located 6.7 miles south west of Barranco, a village in Toledo District; it is 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the south west of Punta Gorda.

There is no easy way to get to the park, as it is all the way to the south of the country and no official roads run through it.
