Columbia Forest Reserve

AdventureAttractionsOutdoor ActivitiesTours

One of the most biologically diverse eco-systems in Belize is located in San Jose.

Columbia Forest Reserve 

One of the most biologically diverse eco-systems in Belize is located in San Jose. It is the Columbia River Forest Reserve and it is comprised of 103,000 acres of tropical rainforest. Tourists are welcome to tour the reserve, though it is a strenuous hike to say the least.

The reserve is extremely diverse, ranging from karsified landscapes featuring a system of caves and sink holes, quartz rocks, creeks, limestone rock above an aquifer, and the well-known 'Little Quartz Ridge.'

Columbia Forest Reserve 

A hike through the reserve will turn up numerous plants and animals native to Belize, many of which have yet to be discovered and cataloged. For example, a recent expedition turned up 15 species of fern alone that had never been seen before.
 
Location
Located near the heart of Toledo District, Columbia Forest Reserve happily welcomes tourists who are lodging in this part of Belize. However, even if you aren't staying particularly close, you should consider dropping by to enjoy a great time. If you're curious, Punta Gorda is 27 miles (43 kilometers) to the southeast. The reserve, which is difficult to reach, is located north of San Jose.

Nearby Attractions
Other kinds of local activities include Tiger Cave, which is within driving range in Toledo District. Also, you might consider visiting Hokeb Ha Cave, which is another attraction in the vicinity. A wildlife reservation is one type of attraction you can visit, but there's more to visit in Belize. The table below lists other attractions that are closest.
