If Belize is not on your bucket list, read on and it soon will be! This often overlooked jungle paradise in Central America lies south of Mexico, neighboring Guatemala and the vast Caribbean Sea. With the lowest population density in Central America, Belize favors the peaceful traveler looking to escape modern, crowded tourist destinations, absorb the country’s culture and history, and explore the vast ecosystem that the region boasts.
When looking for local lodging, the eco-friendly GAÏA Riverlodge provides the perfect combination of a contemporary yet authentic Belizean experience for the modern traveler. Surrounded by the dramatic Five Sisters waterfalls of the Privassion River, the completely hydro-powered GAÏA Riverlodge offers guided tours, hikes and adventure packages to patrons. Whether you’re planning to hike the Mayan ruins, zip-line, horseback ride or raft through the beautiful Belizean jungle, you’ll be in great hands, absorbing the dynamic landscape and scenery in style and with locals who know the landscape.
For the more tranquil tourist who prefers to relax, the GAÏA Riverlodge offers 16 jungle cabanas that feature Belizean hardwoods, traditional bay leaf thatched roofs and mahogany interiors, along with modern comforts including ceiling fans, pillow top mattresses and Frette linens.
And as in any country, it’s essential to indulge in the local cuisine. GAÏA’s trained chefs have crafted breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that highlight the variety of fresh fruits and vegetables grown in GAÏA’s own organic garden, as well as fresh seafood from the nearby Caribbean – always with a unique Belizean twist.
