Jaguar Spotting, Belize

16 of 27

At the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary & Jaguar Preserve in southern Belize, you might catch a glimpse of some of the 200 jaguars that live in the preserve, but you’ll have more luck if you go at night. The preserve, which opened in 1986, is home to these slinky predators, but because they’re nocturnal, your best bet is to rent a cabin on the grounds through the Belize Audubon Society, for better nighttime spotting. —Matt Haber
