Another awesome review of our Eco Lodge:
This place is located in an edenic spot, remote and teeming with wonderful sights and sounds. The individual room was fairly small but adequately appointed with a very comfortable bed and a small sink. A shared bathroom and shower were literally a few steps away. Everything was clean and well kept. The lodge is carved out of the jungle then re-landscaped to give the feeling of being surrounded by natural foliage. The building has several levels with outdoor shaded verandas all with beautiful and comfortable hand made furniture. Great for reading, chatting or just relaxing. The hand crafted lodge is made with local woods and is beautifully constructed. We had as much activity as we wanted: we had a fantastic full day waterfall excursion run by a local man with a pontoon boat who took us to very exotic and private spots. This trip will remain with us: a truly memorable emersion experience in which we climbed into, onto, over, and through a series of beautiful falls of different sizes and types. Roberto, the guide, was solicitous and informative and assured a safe but very enjoyable outing. Waterfall jumping was a thrilling addition. Roberto also led us on a private tour of a remote Mayan Cave with beautiful artifacts and provided us with informative archaeological commentary. He also offered a great horseback ride through dense jungle paths up a steep mountainside to a gorgeous view of a river valley.
At “Better in Belize” the manager in charge of the property was a warm, accessible and helpful man. We learned much about the local area, culture and medicinal plants from Jorge. A multi talented and philosophical man, Jorge was invaluable to my wife and me. We felt very connected to Belizean cultural history and current goings on through him and his lovely wife, Deysi. He gave us a wonderful tour of the community garden and several of the homes under construction on the property. It was a fantastic experience. Just a note about the road. A four wheel drive vehicle is indeed a necessity. It’s an arduous ride. But well worth it!
