Orange Walk District

belizeflower.jpg Orange Walk District is the second largest district of the six that make up Belize. The district is diverse with lagoons, marshes and deep tropical forests. The New River Lagoon is Belize's largest body of fresh water, 50 km long. Orange Walk Town, near the northern tip of the district, is one of the largest commercial and farming centers in the country. Population is around 10,000 people. Orange Walk Town is not geared to tourism.

The Rio Bravo Research Station, located on 250,000 acres of prime tropical jungle is run by conservationists sponsoring "Programme for Belize." The station is dedicated to scientific research, agricultural experimentation, protection of indigenous wildlife and the area's Maya archaeological locations while creating self-sufficiency through development of ecotourism and sustainable rainforest agriculture. They expend with the help of the Belize Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy and the World Wildlife Fund, a good effort in educating Belizeans and ecospecialists from abroad.

Other interesting tours in Orange Walk District, beside the trip to Lamanai Outpost Lodge, are the Orchid Tours. One- hundred fifty species of orchids grow wild throughout the country, including the black orchid, the Belizean national flower.
