A welcoming lodge in a region that few tourists reach. Home cooking, warm service and detached thatched cabins make this an excellent family destination.

In a secluded area of southern Belize, The Lodge at Big Falls provides the opportunity for you to visit an area of the country that few get to enjoy. The home cooking and obliging service provided by the friendly owners enhance the personalised atmosphere. There are 8 detached, thatched cabins, scattered amongst picturesque gardens.

Excursions on offer include kayaking on the river that flows through the cultivated grounds of the lodge, which gives way to thicker, low-lying jungle upstream. On land, nature trails reveal a profusion of bird life. Bicycle hire is also available.

What our clients say

  • Local flights were amazing enabling us to really see and appreciate the country....The diversity of the local cultures and cuisine were a wonderful surprise and experience.

    CT, Hortley
  • We saw a massive variety of animals, insects and fish between the rainforest and the reef and exploring these environments with knowledgeable guides was a pleasure. Whether it was hummingbirds buzzing overhead at dinner, a boa constrictor crossing the road, a lucky glimpse of a majestic jaguar or a green sea turtle grazing on the reef it was difficult to pick a highlight moment!

    RW, Usk
  • JLA have been great, and Belize as a country is nothing short of astonishing in every way possible. We will be going back at some point. In fact I'd quite happily live there.

    SC, Wandsworth
  • Most memorable experiences: "Tubing down river at Chaa Creek. Howler monkeys above us at night, and avocados dropping onto our hut."

    LBM, Woking
  • Local flights were amazing enabling us to really see and appreciate the country.  In three weeks we only met 3 other British couples as most travellers appeared to be from North America, but Belize was well worth the visit and 2012 is the end of the current Maya calendar.  The diversity of the local cultures and cuisine were a wonderful surprise and experience.

    CT, Horley
  • We liked Guatemala and were particularly impressed with Belize (likely to go back there)”
