Night Hike in Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve

Visit the natural habitat of some of Belize's nocturnal animals in the world's only jaguar preserve! Your chances are good at seeing some fresh wild cat tracks. If you are very lucky, you may even see an elusive jaguarundi, puma, jaguar or ocelot. Other animals you are likely to encounter on a night walk are foxes, opossums, kinkajous, agoutis and coatimundis. Do you like creepy crawlies? Here's your opportunity see scorpions, spiders and snakes. There is something captivating about experiencing the rainforest at night!

Listen to the calls of the howler monkeys, crickets, frogs and occasionally jaguars. Breathe in the scents of rainforest life -- musky vegetation, rich soil, moisture.  Enjoy the beauty of a moon trying hard to shine all the way through the forest canopy. Let your imagination run wild in the wild!

Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!

Hamanasi helped introduce my family to the Garifuna & Maya people of Belize. Everything is so close – the mountains, caves, waterfalls, animals, ruins – this is such a peaceful country with rich culture and a people that cares about the environment. What a hidden gem! Thank you!

Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.

Room beautifully decorated and clean! The entire staff was extremely helpful & courteous. Food was the best! Tour guides extremely knowledgeable!

Wonderful stay, beautiful surroundings. The staff was unfailingly friendly and accommodating. Adventures were great and well organized!

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.

This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.
