Maya Pots in ATM Cave

Belize rarely gets the attention it deserves, even more true for the inland jungle areas.  Many of the most memorable adventures in this New Jersey-sized paradise are located in Central Belize.  So, while the beach may beckon you, don’t underestimate the allure of the jungle!

From the Caribbean Sea to the Mountain Jungles, Belize might be small, but it’s jam-packed with once in a lifetime experiences!

Our guests have witnessed howler monkeys, green iguanas, agoutis, and even the keel-billed toucan from our bungalow deck!  Birders will be delighted with the dozens of varieties of birds right on our property!

If history is your thing, explore excavated ancient Maya cities, examine the hieroglyphs, or travel into natural caves to see where the Maya performed rituals for the gods of their underworld.
