The Lodge at Big Falls

The Lodge at Big Falls is situated on the banks of the Rio Grande river in Belize's southern Toledo District, a region of isolated villages lying amongst an unspoiled tropical wilderness. The lodge property is located on a meander of the river with almost a mile of river frontage. There are views towards the Maya Mountains to the northwest while the south eastern bank faces the small village of Big Falls.

Located close to Punta Gorda in Toledo, southern Belize, the Lodge at Big Falls is one of the district's premier inland resorts. Offering not only elegant accommodation, fine food and drink, the lodge will introduce you to eco-tours of the local Mayan people and culture through easy access to the natural wonder and archaeological history of the area.

Being a small, family run lodge, six thatched cottage style cabanas are suitable for either single or family accommodations. Each cabana has a queen size double and either an extra single bed or full size bunks. The Lodge also has a full service restaurant and bar. Lodge meals offer a range of local and international dishes, with vegetarian, vegan, kashrut, and children's alternatives.

The lodge is also a licensed tour operator offering a wide range of tours and activities within its packages and all of them include a mix of natural history as well as cultural encounters with local people.

The Lodge at Big Falls is 6 miles (9.6 kilometres) south of Nim Li Punit, 8 miles (12.8km) from Lubaantun and 13 miles (20.8km) from Blue Creek Cave.

There are 10 flights a day into Punta Gorda (PND) on Maya Island Air and Tropic Air. The flight takes 60-65 minutes from Belize International Airport (BZE) including stops along the way at Dangriga (DGA) and Placencia (PLJ).

... birding around the Maya ruins, snorkeling on the coral reefs, spotting wildlife and manatees along the Monkey River, a night walk around the lodge to spot possum, armadillos and kinkajou, and a visit to the Rio Blanco National Park. All excellent and accompanied by their excellent expert guide Steven. A terrific place for families, wildlife enthusiasts, and anyone looking for a taste of southern Belize. - Rob Montague, London
