Experience the sub-tropical rainforest jungle in your private thatched roof cabana on the Belize River surrounded by tropical birds, tropical fruit, the sound of Howler Monkeys, and a natural spring.  Adventure to Mayan Ruins, Cave Tubing, Zip Lining, meet the local people and enjoy local delicious Belizean dishes. 

Note:  This lodge is located in the real jungle.  Access is by a small boat across the Belize River with a hike up a hill.  We are an eco adventure lodge with a small footprint.  We have limited solar, composting toilets and an abundance of nature and wildlife.  We are paradise to many, but outside the comfort zone of some.
