Alma del Rio is simply the perfect spot to perform the Belizean verb of 'Chillaxing' for the true nature lovers. Our Charming and natural Eco-House is Located on the Macal river only 10 min from San Ignacio on the road to the famous Pine-ridge. Immersed under huge trees, enjoy the wildlife, pristine views and a secluded river island-beach and swimming spot . Our interior is artfully hand crafted, and is equipped with all the amenities for a comfortable stay without compromising the environment.

The space
Alma Del Rio is a unique & natural homestay acknowledged by the Belize tourism board as a 'health and safety gold standard facility'. Our house is artfully crafted, nested peacefully in the environment. Enjoy our screened lounge with a breathtaking view of the river, often visited by many colorful birds. We have a fast wifi and the perfect view to show off to your colleagues if you are working from afar. We planted a young food forest under the huge Guanacaste trees and a herb garden for your use. Below our house we have a secluded river island with comfortable access (in season). We have 2 houses on the property. the distance between the houses is 40' and they are separated by dense vegetation. we made all effort to make sure each house has it's privacy and yet if you are a bigger groups of people you can now rent the 2 houses :)
We offer all the amenities to enjoy our river experience: A Cooler, picnic mat, bamboo plates, beach towels, water shoes. Enjoy complimentary tropical fruit, handmade soaps, coffee, tea and drinking water . We offer a fully equipped kitchen, a hot and cold shower, board games, a spacious dining table and a lounge area with a great river view. We are Kids friendly!! We do not have AC but we do have a great river breeze most of the time and by passive cooling the bedrooms stay cool. Our house is environmentally friendly: We use a solar water heater and energy efficient lighting, together with only biodegradable products and minimizing plastic use. We strive to make minimal impact on the environment.
Akela, our new, dog will be greeting you upon arrival, she came from the river one day and decided to make Alma Del Rio as her new home.
We offer a true jungle experience. Mind that living in nature means we do get visits from multi-legged or flying critters inside the house. The occasional bangs from falling branches and the chirps and clicks of the geckos add to the tunes to the beautiful orchestra of nature playing for us :)

Where you’ll be

Cristo Rey, Cayo District, Belize

Alma del Rio is located 2 miles from Santa-Elena towards the Pine Ridge reserve. Though a sleepy road, before you reach our tranquil home, there are several great attractions - you will pass cool M farm where you can purchase fresh milk and Yogurt, Eden Valley Mayan kitchen to taste delicious locally made chocolate, 'The bluffs' bar and grill for great food, drinks and live music, Maya mountain lodge that only use organic, fresh, local produce in their menu (vegan options available too!). 2 Min drive from our house you can find a magical waterfall. In San Antonio village, we highly recommend trying the the women's co-op restaurant - the best in traditional, hearty Mayan dishes that are some of the best in Belize.

Alma del Rio, the 'soul of the river', is named after our little Alma Sophia, who was born here in Belize and is raised among it's diverse nature and culture.
We've been living in Belize for over 8 years. In the first 2, we managed a luxury island resort and presently own a business introducing and distributing renewable energy products. We bring into Alma del Rio all we know and believe in - professional hospitality and environmental awareness.
We will be more than happy to help you get around, visit the best destinations and plan your trip according to your preferences and budget. We know the hospitality industry in Belize well, and will be glad to share our knowledge with you.
Have a wonderful day!
