Big Creek (also Cala Grande) is a sea port facility constructed in the 1990s in Belize on the Caribbean Sea. It is the nation's second most important port, after Belize City. Big Creek is the main port for Belize's banana industry and is also the location from which oil, extracted from the fields of Spanish Lookout, is exported. You can drive from here to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, a dense tropical rain forest set against the jagged peaks of the Maya Mountains. Clear streams and rivers traverse this protected sanctuary that is home to a rich variety of wildlife, including tapir, armadillo, anteater, jaguar, and over 290 species of birds, including the endangered scarlet macaw, keel-billed toucan, and the great curassow. There is also a large range of plants, including orchids, air plants, and giant tree ferns.
