Belize Botanic Gardens (BBG) is located approximately 10 miles westward beyond San Ignacio Town on the Chial Road in the Cayo District, Belize, Central America.
It is nestled in the foothills of the Maya Mountains on the bank of the beautiful Macal River.
Visitors from Belize and around the world come here to enjoy the beauty of the gardens and to learn about plant conservation. As a not-for-profit organization, BBG exists to serve as gardens and educational grounds for the Belizean community to enjoy and take advantage of, as well as a scientific and living germplasm resource pool for botanical and horticultural institutions world-wide.
The Gardens is comprised of 45 acres of gardens, arboretum and natural areas.
The focus of our collections is native and exotic plants of Belize, as well as non-native and non-invasive plant species. We strive to educate local communities and international visitors of the importance of protecting native plants and ecosystems.
