Our charming Casita has its own deck where you have a view of the waterfall, and all of the amenities including a kitchenette well-equipped with a stove-top burner, small fridge, coffee maker, and all cooking implements. There is also a full private bathroom. Beds in the main bedroom can be arranged into two single beds or turned into a King. A double pull-out futon is available in the main living room.

The space
The Casita is situated on a gorgeous 200-acre property comprised of tropical rainforest and organic orchards which boast abundant plant and animal life and a gorgeous small river that runs through the property with refreshing swimming holes just a five minute walk through the orchard from your cabin!

We are promoting a new culture of sustainable tourism and community living for people that want to get a taste of living and working together at our operational biology field station and organic farm. We welcome one and all, from individuals to families, though minimum length of stays are one week. In exchange for low priced accommodations, our visitors help us keep our space beautiful and our research, education, and farming projects ongoing by participating in daily community service volunteer hours (4-5 hours per day).

We have a vast trail network, including a long hiking trail (5 – 6 hour return trip) that leads into the Sibun Forest Reserve and up to a beautiful 3-tiered 300 ft waterfall (currently only accessible by guided hike, $50 US/person). Longest non-guided hike available currently is a 2-hour loop that passes through a gorgeous gorge along Dry Creek with ample swimming opportunities. The property is operated as a research and education center and organic farm and although many of our clientele are student research groups, we also welcome anyone that desires to experience what it is like to live and explore at an active biological field station and organic farm!

We also have a bush guide on the premises and licensed guides nearby who can lead you in any activity you desire, both on-site and to surrounding locations for cave tubing, cave kayaking, climbing, wildlife viewing, sailing, beach trips, snorkeling on the Barrier name it! Our Society operates many community development programs as well, so if you would like a taste of both the wildlife and the culture of Belize, you are in for a treat if you decide to book a cabin at our location.

Our Wifi network is limited to 100 mb per day of free wifi. The Wifi is only available in the main building and not in our cabins. If you need Wifi in your cabin and/or more data, please ask us in advance and we will offer you suggestions of how this may be possible with our local internet service providers.

Where you’ll be

Middlesex, Stann Creek, Belize

Our closest community is the small village of Mile 28. We have a close relationship with this community and if you are interested in immersing yourself in a traditional Central American village, we have some lovely neighbours that would be happy to take you on a tour of their beautiful fruit orchards.
