Black Rock Lodge is nestled in the dense rainforest overlooking the Macal River in the Maya Mountains of Belize. Located in the foothills of the Cayo District near the Guatemalan border, Black Rock is a perfect base for adventure travel in Belize including access to caving, rainforest hikes, swimming and river tubing, and exploration of Mayan ruins including travel to Tikal and Caracol. The private rainforest reserve is teeming with wildlife including over 200 species of birds; it is one of the rare places in Central America where you can find all three species of toucan. Especially ideal for a family vacation to Belize all 14 cabanas have stunning views of Black Rock Canyon and the Macal River with great wildlife watching from a hammock on the front porch. The cabins are built to take advantage of the fresh mountain breezes with screened windows and high pitched roof lines, creating a bright and refreshing rainforest home for guests. Simply decorated, the cabins display artwork created by local artisans and craftspeople. Black Rock Lodge cabins provide a variety of size and configurations that easily accommodate families, Belize honeymoon couples, and friends traveling together. All rooms have a private bath, some with walk-in showers overlooking the canyon cliffs.
The warm and attentive staff from the surrounding communities of San Ignacio, Bullet Tree, and Melchor serve delicious Creole and international cuisine using fresh organic fruits grown on site and other local ingredients. Ten months out of the year the Black Rock is one of few Belize resorts that generates 100% of its electricity from a hybrid source of solar and hydropower.
