      At Lamanai, a Maya temple site, enjoy morning wake-up calls from Howler
      Monkeys in the canopy trees high overhead and an evening "spotlight safari"
      searching for Morelet's and American Crocodiles. Interact with researchers
      studying environmental contaminants of Crocodiles, vocalizations of Howler
      Monkeys, and Songbird populations. Our rainforest/reef comparison continues
      at Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary--the world's only Jaguar reserve
      and on Belize's Barrier Reef. Over 220 types of fish as well as hundreds
      of invertebrate species can be found along the magnificent reef structure.
      Enjoy the crystal waters of the Caribbean's vibrant hues of blue from
