Billy Barquedier National Park
Billy Barquedier National Park Review
Billy Barquedier National Park is a 1,500-acre park along the Hummingbird Highway in Stann Creek District. Established in 2001, the park is still in its infancy. While it offers no spectacular sights, it does have primitive hiking trails and the Barquedier Waterfall (locally sometimes called Bac-a-Der Waterfall). It's part of a community co-management program for parks and reserves, in this case with the Steadfast Tourist and Conservation group of Steadfast village, along with the Belize Forestry Department. It's best to enter the park via the northern entrance at Mile 16½ of the Hummingbird Highway. Entrance fee is to the park BZ$8, and a 3-hour guided tour to the falls by Holistic Eco Tours is BZ$120 for up to four persons. Camping is available in the park for BZ$20 per person, plus the park entrance fee.
