Oasis in the jungle
Posted May 13, 2016 on Orbitz
The lodge was very intriguing. I will have to describe further the location and the Belize experience. The room was excellent and the resort is totally beautiful with flowers and trees very well kempt. Every morning we would wake to parrots and toucans, every evening the sounds of geckos surrounded the area. The food was presented in first class manner and the innkeepers a couple from the UK with many experiences and lots of great stories. The discussion was great and drinks were well made to match.
The location was hard to find, like everything in Belize. Very few signs and horrible roads. Be sure to rent a 4WD. The road coming off the main road is the bumpiest I have seen. The entrance is a road test for the hardiest vehicle. It just adds to the adventure we found there. The main road, Western Highway, is filled with people walking and riding bikes, twists and turns reveal massive speed bumps not well indicated, and practically no signs anywhere to indicate where to go. Driving was one of the biggest adventures we faced. Please don't drive at night, as the above becomes life threatening to those around you and yourself. Drivers there aren't like the people as anyone will pass on a sharp turn going over a hill.
We loved Belize for all it's adventure and friendly people. The sights were amazing and the ruins awe inspiring.
