Accommodations for Mayan Jungle Ride with Caracol excursion

This is a stationary ride, so all nights are spent at the same location.

You are accommodated in an award-winning environmentally sustainable lodge, located on 105 of Nature Reserve surrounded by the jungle.
The owners wanted to create an eco-friendly lodge and therefore the lodge produces its own electricity thanks to solar panels. For this reason, the standard electric outlets have been replaced by USD outlets. This means that hairdryers and curling irons cannot be used. We do have, however, a room where guests can charge their computers or other electronics through standard outlets.
Each of the 10 spacious cabanas are elevated and designed to naturally stay cool, taking advantage of natural ventilation and convection, as well as cooling river breezes. To supplement our ‘natural breeze’ cooling system we have industrial ceiling fans in all cabanas. 
It should also be noted that our running water is supplied by rain water and water from the nearby river.

Complimentary WiFi is available free of charge in guest common areas.
The Internet is made possible by multiple towers beaming the signal to us from town. This connection can be affected by rainy and windy weather, as well as by local anomalies such as power outage in town or the number of people using the system at the same time, so it may be slower or unavailable from time to time.

Please, note that there is little to no cell service available at the lodge.

International Phone Service  is available for an additional fee.
Laundry service is available at BZ$20 per load (wash, dry, and fold), and is sent out to our laundry facility in Cristo Rey Village each day.

Room Options
- Garden View Cabanas (1 Queen bed) - can accommodate up to 2 people
- River Valley View Cabanas (1 King bed + 1 futon ) - can accommodate up to 3 people
- Jungle View Cabanas (1 Queen or King bed + 1 futon + enough room for a 2’ x 6’ camp cot & a 4” foam mattress) - can accommodate up to 5 people (ideally, 2 adults and up to 3 children)
- Rainforest Cabin (1 large bedroom with a king bed + 1 small bedroom with bunk beds) - can accommodate up to 5 people

Garden View Cabanas (“Aracari” & “Kiskadee” Rooms) - can accommodate up to 2 people
The 2 adjoining Garden View Cabañas share a single building and palm-thatched veranda overlooking the tropical flower garden. They are within easy walking distance of the dining room and bar. These rooms each have 1 Queen sized handcrafted four-poster bed made from indigenous My Lady trees, tiled floors, private hot water bath with a large river stone-lined shower and an industrial ceiling fan.

Jungle View Cabanas (“MotMot”, “Oropendola”, & “Great Currasow” Rooms) - can accommodate up to 5 people (ideally, 2 adults and up to 3 children)
Larger and more private than the Garden View Cabañas, the Jungle View Cabañas are spacious, stand-alone rooms offering either a queen-sized or king-sized handmade four poster bed, full sized futon, private thatched roof veranda, and gorgeous views of the surrounding jungle. These rooms all have tiled floors, private hot water river stone-lined showers, 2 industrial ceiling fans and a hammock.

River Valley View Cabana (“Laughing Falcon,” “Little Blue Heron,” “Purple Gallinule”, & “Kingfisher” Rooms) - can accommodate up to 3 people
Our most secluded and spacious rooms, these cabañas are prized for their stunning views of the Macal River Valley. Each room is equipped with industrial ceiling fans and private hot water baths with large river stone-lined showers. They feature a large, palm-thatched veranda, a king-sized four poster bed, 1 full-sized futon, and hardwood floors.

Rainforest Cabin - can accommodate up to 5 people
Formerly the abode of the owners, this 2-bedroom/one-bath cabin features a covered veranda, multiple ceiling fans, and mixture of hardwood and ceramic tile flooring. The master bedroom contains a king-sized bed and panoramic views of the surrounding jungle. The smaller second bedroom is perfect for the kids, with one set of bunk beds. The bedrooms are linked by a half-bath, and there is a second sink basin and separate stone-lined shower room to help as everyone is trying to get ready at the same time.

Room Occupancy
Please, let us know what is your preferred room type at the time of booking. Also, note that we do not take solo travelers at this time.
Up to two children under 18 years of age can stay in the parents’ room free of charge (including the addition of one camp cot). If additional beds are needed to accommodate children of any age or if there are more than 2 children in the room, then an additional fee applies. Cots and additional bedding arrangements must be requested in advance.

All meals are included from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on your last day. Breakfasts and Dinners will be taken at the lodge, while lunches will be provided by the ranch during day rides.

At the lodge, the chefs combine the freshest local products and their skill to serve guests with delicious dishes. The majority of fruit, herbs and vegetables come from our working farm, and our eggs are delivered by our free-range chickens. We use local fishermen and fish farms to provide fresh fish and seafood, and we purchase all meats locally. Whenever available, ingredients used in our gourmet dishes are produced within Belize.
The lodge's farm is currently cultivating Valencia oranges, Key and Tahitian (Persian) limes, several varieties of mango, and coconuts. Additionally, we produce our own avocados, chaya (a local green favored by the Maya), star fruit, sapodilla, grapefruit, craboo, breadfruit, and soursop (guanábana). During different times of the year we also grow a small selection of vegetables and fresh herbs. All of the flowers and plants you see at the lodge are grown on the farm in our very own landscape and flower nursery. We encourage guests to walk around the farm via the main road and to help themselves to any of our tropical fruits. Our only rule is that you must eat what you pick!

Early Breakfast: Packed breakfasts are available for departures prior to 6:45 AM and when ordered at least one day in advance.
Full and Continental Breakfast: Served between 6:30-9:30 AM. Menu changes daily & offers a choice of 4 items.
Snacks & Homemade Desserts: Served all day.
Dinner: Served between 5:30-8:30 PM. Menu changes daily and offers a choice of two starters and two entrées with special selections for specific dietary needs. Private candlelight dinners are also available for a small fee and with advanced notice.

During full day rides, you will be provided with a packed lunch. In case of half-day rides, lunch will be cooked at the ranch's Cantina.
