Shipstern Conservation & Management Area, Sarteneja

#60 of 75 in Parks in Belize
A visit to the North-East of Belize allows for the discovery of a beautiful region still off the beaten track. Shipstern has traditionally been a magnet for those naturalists and tourists ready to leave the main circuit, and no one has ever been disappointed. The sheer diversity in landscapes and habitats is astounding, and it is also the only place in Belize where you will be able to experience a walk through a coastal dry Yucatan forest, and see the very rare Kuka Palm and Elephant’s Foot in the wild.

  • Through an old acquaintance we ended up in this location. We were kindly taken care of and were given a tour of a French young man Rémy directly by a beautiful Butterfly Garden within the reserve. Later we also got a tour of a friendly guide through the jungle. Finally we got lots of food and lemonade to our visit. The only drawbacks were that you have many suffered from mosquitoes and the location is difficult to achieve, but that's all. Definitely visit if you're in Sarteneja resides or happen to be in the neighborhood. 5/5

  • Shipstern is doing many great things for belize.and the village of Sarteneja. ..
  • Well maintained park for people who want a glimpse of nature. Very impressive butterfly enclosure. I'm talking about a screened in deck system where you can walk through while beautiful butterflies flitter about. It was quite a magical experience.
  • Nice people. Great service!
  • Shipstern conservation is a beautiful place, with an observation tower. A great place for birdwatchers and nature lovers !
  • Literally in the middle of nowhere, I was blown away by the hospitality, clean and spacious facilities, amazing blend of local and international cuisine (I especially loved the Horchata) and the warm and friendly hospitality of all workers (most if not all locals)!!!
