Sarstoon-Temash National Park
Sarstoon-Temash National Park Review
One of the wildest and most remote areas of Belize is the Sarstoon-Temash National Park, between the Temash and Sarstoon rivers in the far south of Toledo District on the border of Guatemala. Red mangroves grow along the river banks; animals and birds rarely seen in other parts of Belize, including white-faced capuchin monkeys, can be spotted here, along with jaguars (if you're lucky), ocelots, and tapirs, along with more than 200 species of birds. The only way to see this 42,000-acre area is with a guide by boat. Contact the Sarstoon and Temash Institute for Indigenous Management (SATIIM) for a guide, or check with the BTIA office on Front Street in PG, home to the Toledo Tour Guide Association. SATIIM, among other things, is involved in efforts to oppose oil and gas exploration in the Sarstoon-Temash.
