If you are scared of Scorpions, Belize may not be the place for you. Scorpions are found in 16 states of the US and are found through out all of Belize with 4 known species. Scorpions actually do not bite, but they sting and are usually not life threatening. The stinger is in the tail and the sting can be very painful.
Scorpions are nocturnal and come out when the sun sets. They love to find little corners or hidden away places to hide.
We found one on the shower floor one morning when we were staying at the Maruba Jungle Spa in Belize.
