Swasey Bladen Forest Reserve 

Since 1990 this pristine natural forest has been a protected area and is considered to be the most important nature reserve in Belize. It is comprised of 100,000 acres of biodiversity that is currently only open to researchers and scientists, although there are hopes of allowing tourism in the near future.
This forest reserve is not landscaped in the slightest. Indeed, it is rugged and natural, encompassing parts of the Maya Mountains, limestone karst, sinkholes, caves, and waterfalls.
Set in the Maya Mountain Corridor, Swasey Bladen Forest Reserve covers several different ecosystems and provides refuge for hundreds of different animal species such as jaguar, harpy eagles, and scarlet macaws. It also plays an important role in watershed to the Monkey River. Of significance importance are the multiple Mayan ruins which have been found on property.

 Wildlife in the Reserve

Set on the northeastern outskirts of Toledo District, 12.2 miles west of Alabama Warf, Swasey Bladen Forest Reserve welcomes local residents and tourists rooming in this part of Belize. Even if you are not staying in this location, you should think about stopping by to check out the sights. It is west of Placencia.
Nearby Attractions
Those who enjoy wildlife reservations, and have the energy to view some others, should check out Savannah Forest Station at Paynes Creek and Paynes Creek National Park; the first of which is 7.7 miles to the east of this nature preserve. This nature preserve can be found pleasantly located without most tourist attractions and hotels, in a secluded area.
