Fodor's Expert Review Cockscomb Campgrounds and Cabins

Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, , Stann Creek, Belize

You can camp at one of three campgrounds in the Combscomb Wildlife Reserve for BZ$10 per night per person, or for a little more money you can stay in rooms in a dormitory with solar-generated electricity, starting at BZ$40 per person. Also, a small house and three cabins, each with private bath, can accommodate up to four or six people (BZ$106–BZ$150 per house/cabin). An old, primitive cabin with 10 bunk beds is around BZ$16 per person. There's a communal kitchen for cooking—bring your own food and water, as nothing is sold in the reserve. No fishing or hunting is allowed in the reserve, and pets are prohibited. For information or to book campsites, rooms, or cabins in advance, contact the Belize Audubon Society in Belize City. On a space-available basis, you can also book accommodations with rangers at the visitor and nature center in the Cockscomb reserve.
