With it's tree top setting in sub tropical gardens you will feel like you have been whisked away to another world, and it will feel like you are living in the jungle, close enough for you to enjoy the facilities of the town, but away from the hustle & bustle to allow you to get back in touch with nature. A mere 15-20 minute walk to Cahal Pech Maya Ruins and the Iguana Sanctuary and the famous Xunantunich is less than 8 miles away !

The Cayo district with it's countryside, hills, farms, streams and forest,
is an area rich in outdoor activities and sites offering experiences such as -
Maya Ruins, Iguana Sanctuary, Botanical Gardens, Butterfly Gardens, Horse Back Riding Tours,
Macal River, Black Rock Lodge, Big Rock Falls, Rio Frio Caves,
River For Swimming, Tubing or canoeing, Jungle Activities Including Zip Lining
and all of this still less than two hours from the fantastic Caribbean Beach

During your stay

All pictures shown of the gardens and wildlife were taken by ourselves and on our property - what you see is exactly what you get
Guest review- The cabin and the whole property is very beautifully and well maintained. There are tons of hummingbirds around.. While I was there, there were birds, iguanas, a Toucan, tarantulas, butterflies and wild ducks making their way.... The whole property is a tiny bubble of tropical magic. Every member of the family was quite exceptional and I enjoyed exchanging with each one of them. They were eager to help me find my way, to give me tips and advise me in what way they could, but what I enjoyed the most about them is their passion and awe for the wild life in their own property; it quickly became contagious!-

Peaceful tropical stay;
Awesome folks in a cozy jungle atmosphere!
Very relaxing and excellent value for the money!
We enjoyed staying in this cottage! It is a free standing structure surrounded by the beautiful garden with squirrels and iguanas! We miss our morning coffee at the balcony watching nature! The hosts were great, they helped to facilitate our tours and other requests we had to make our stay easy. We did ATM and cave tubing. Both were awesome! You are walking distance from the supermarkets if you are planning to use kitchen. It is not located in down town but close enough to walk.
