We visited the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar sanctuary with Kyle of Detourz. He is a super knowledgeable guide and take pride in his work. We loved the " indigenous" jungle wisdom he imparted in regards to plants of the area. We hiked the beautiful jungle paths and although we never sighted a Jaguar ( did not have that expectation) we saw... More

Our guides, Doyle and Kylan, picked us up in a large comfortable van right at 8am. Our group was 2 couples and a family of 4. We did a nice jungle hike with Kylan and Doyle stopping to tell us the history of the Cockscomb Preserve and learning about flora, fauna, and wildlife in the area. Tubing was a blast,... More

Doyle is friendly and knowledgeable and the tour was great. Good food, interesting history, and very informative. The river tube was very fun and the rock sliding was amazing. I will say, because I didn't know going into it, it's a pretty decent hike and does require some level of fitness. We had two people not go up to the... More

Such a great tour! Doyle was awesome and very knowledgeable. Full day tour of hiking, learning about local plants, tubing through the jungle and then of course the amazing natural waterslides. Definitely go with this tour!

Doyle took us to the jaguar preserve, cockscomb basin. We had a hike around the luscious jungle with Doyle as our trusty and informative guide. We circled back around to camp and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Soon we headed out and tubed down the river listening and watching for creatures. Then we ditched the tubes to check out the beautiful...

Our group of moms and kids in Placencia took this tour to do something different. Most of us have already been to Cockscomb but not with Doyle. It was so much fun and educational. The kids didn't seem to mind the learning part either! The best part was the rock sliding. If you have kids I would recommend taking this... More

We went on Doyle's Cockscomb Jaguar Preserver tour that includes an informative and interesting nature hike, river tubing and rock sliding. It was an outstanding way to spend the day and to learn about the flora and fauna of Belize. Doyle knows the preserve like the back of his hand and his stories and information along the way are interesting... More
