About this Property
A rare opportunity to buy one of the leading jungle lodges in Belize. Situated within prime rainforest and walking distance from the well known ATM cave, this lodge offers excellent business opportunities. On the 100 acre forested property, there are 11 thatched cabanas and a main lodge that surround an ancient Maya Plazuela group. The cabanas overlook the forest canopy and creek. During the 15 years of business, the lodge has gained a reputation for its unique location and first class service. The business includes accommodation, restaurant, guided hikes, river activities and operates tours throughout Belize.
One of the most beautiful properties in inland Belize. Located in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, it is 12 miles from Belmopan and 21 miles from San Ignacio, and although deep in the rainforest, the property is approximately 1 ½ hours from the International Airport, an easy drive on the day of arrival. The property is adjacent to a 6,700 acre reserve and borders approximately 1 mile of the Roaring River.
The lodge includes 100 acres of prime forest with hiking trails, manicured lawns, an arboretum and the unique feature of a consolidated Maya site, the perfect backdrop for weddings. There are 11 well designed cabanas surrounding the Maya site, each with a traditional thatch roof, private bathroom and electricity.
Two of the larger cabanas are approached by a 20’ raised bridge over an all year round fresh water creek and walkway. Other housing includes staff and management housing, garages and generator room. There are 2 generators, inverter and batteries, to run the electricity.
Just within the reserve there is a fresh water spring and water is pumped from a submerged pump to underground tanks. Water to the cabanas is gravity fed.
Water is heated for the cabanas by burning cohune nuts.
his lodge has been run as a family business but has potential for expansion. There is infrastructure in place for four more of the larger cabanas.
