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!

We went with Doyle to Cockscomb Preserve and had a great day with him! He is so knowledgeable and you can tell he truly cares about the area and wildlife. Lunch was fantastic. I would highly recommend his tour. We had a great time and learned a lot!

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

This is a trip you must do when you come to Placencia, especially if you have children. They will love the guided hike made interesting by Doyle's stories and demonstrations, the fun but controlled tubing down the river, and the exciting yet very safe slides down a rocky stream. Doyle is an expert at gauging your comfort level and making... More

Two girlfriends and I booked the Cockscomb day tour with Doyle. We loved it. Doyle is extremely knowledgeable about history, botany, wildlife, etc. I also had the honor of meeting Doyle's longtime mentor who is the instructor to the other guides at this park. Doyle picked us up in a brand new, air conditioned van, on time, at our hotel.... More
