Get a first hand look at the local flora and fauna while witnessing the evidence of an ancient culture that litters the walking trail.Enjoy ACES Educational Croc Eco-Sanctuary and be thrilled and amazed by the rescued American and Morelet’s crocodiles. These prehistoric giants are the crocs that are too big and dangerous to be relocated into the wild. Feel the rush of being this close to one of the World’s most deadly apex predators. ACES staff will be happy to educate you on the importance of the preservation of these threatened and protected animals. By participating in this educational tour you are directly contributing to ACES efforts to protect an endangered species.After this much excitement enjoy some of the best food and beverages Belize has to offer at “Captain Hook’s Shrimp Restaurant and Croc Lounge.” Cool off, relax, and experience the freshest shrimp you will ever eat.

And, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not take a free lesson in net casting and catch them yourself.Directions: Head North 1.5 km from the International Airport road junction and turn right on Marge Road (look for the rocket on the corner). Then drive 1.8 km straight down to the gate. Open for tours between 8:00am and 5:00pm daily. Call the Captain at 600-9945 for reservation or more information.

The restaurant is an open-air place with a great view! But for an evening meal, you would need to be covered in Deep Woods Off, the mosquitoes were attacking us like crazy! We ended up getting our food to go. It was delicious and so were our drinks while we waited!!

Worth stopping by for a shrimp cocktail and a drink. The crocodile rehabilitation center on the same grounds are interesting. The shrimp farming operation is amazing.

Had a couple hours to kill before catching our flight back to the states and stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant. My wife had the coconut shrimp which were wonderful and I had the chicken fingers which were tasty. The owner came by and gave us a tutorial on shrimp aquaculture and we went to look at the rescue crocodiles afterwards. This is a wonderful little place that is definitely worth the side trip.

Relaxed dinner outdoors overlooking the shrimp ponds. Small menu but we enjoyed everything we ordered. One person in our group ordered chicken strips and commented to os how fresh they were. Service was excellent.
