Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary

Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary is the top neotropical birding site in Belize and Bird’s Eye View Lodge, located along the famous Crooked Tree Lagoon offers the best tours and lodging options in this part of Belize. Whatever the season there are always exotic neotropical birds about the grounds and the sanctuary and our sharp-eyed, professional, Licensed Guides know how to find them, whether on our Birding-by-Boat Cruises or Guided Bird Walks.


Top Neotropical Birding Site of Belize


You won’t have to go far from the lodge to find exotic birds, they’re all around us. You’ll see neotropical birds like these along our shore, just 50 feet from the Lodge:

With over 250 resident or migratory exotic neotropical birds close by, you are bound to add to your personal bird lists and have the opportunity to take many wonderful photos to show your fellow birders and add to your collection. (Not a birder? Well, be careful, you may become one after one of our cruises!)

Your Base Camp for Exploring Belize

Activities & Tours

Make the Bird’s Eye View Lodge Your Personal Base Camp while Touring Northern Belize.

Our focus is on birds of course, but we know that most of you who come to Belize also want to see the ancient Mayan Archaeological Sites, Baboons (Howler Monkeys) a bit of Belize and perhaps do some snorkeling or cave tubing. Let us make it easy for you. Being centrally located in Northern Belize you’ll find it convenient to base here at the Lodge and make day trips to other nearby locations. Tell us what you want to do while you’re in Northern Belize and we’ll arrange your tour and transportation, or choose from one of our package tours. Then all you have to do is show up at the airport and we’ll take it from there. Or wait ’til you’re here at the Lodge and we’ll help you arrange your tour then.
