Pook's Hill Jungle Lodge

Drive from Belize City around 2 hours across the rolling hills of the Cayo District to Pook's Hill. Secreted away down a dirt road in the middle of a 6800 acre reserve, Pook's Hill is a fantastic location to see the rain forest of Belize. Area trails pass near old mahogany trees and soaring vine-covered ceibas. Listen for howler monkeys in the middle of the night and sit at a partially excavated Maya site on the grounds, imagining what it must have been like to live with these ancient people. Secluded rooms each have ensuite bath and ceiling fans. Enjoy family-style meals and the personal attention of Pook's Hill's owners, who make a special point to meet each of their guests.
