My first trip more than 100 miles from a U.S. border and I loved it. The owners of the MET have created a wonderful place to stay. The amenities just barely include electricity and internet, so if you simply must spend hours on your computer or phone each day, this is not the place for you. For the rest of... More

We did not stay here, but booked a 3 hour horseback riding excursion here for my three daughters and myself. The ride went through the jungle and they pointed out all the interesting plants and explained so much - it was beautiful and informative. We stopped at a stream and waterfall. I wish I could remember our guide's name, but... More

This is an amazing vacation, especially for the adventurous/unafraid. I cannot emphasize how much fun we had on our vacation, galloping full speed through the mountains and fields of belize, learning about the jungle around us, seeing some of the most exotic birds and butterflies in the world. The staff is so knowledgable and talented, with a special shout out... More

Had such a great adventurous stay at MET. Every day was something new and exciting. We went to Tikal in Guatemala, trecks on horseback in the jungle, kayaking through a cave swiming in a awesome river, and so much more. You'll also learn a lot, the guides are very helpful and knowledgeable. You never have to worry about food. They... More

MET will I ever get over you? My stay at MET was not a vacation so much as it was a resetting of my spirit and a cleansing of my soul. I have nothing but positive things to say about this place - it had a profound impact on me and I never wanted to leave. Everything was perfect and... More

I can't say much that others haven't already said. We had a wonderful experience in every way. The riding, swimming, caves, visiting Maya ruins including Tikal in Guatemala, etc. were all very interesting and fun. The food was very good. The guides were all terrific and so very knowledgable on many subjects. Learning about their interesting lives was enjoyable and... More

Thank you for writing and thank you for choosing MET! I'm so happy you enjoyed the magic of dark quiet star-lit nights and the beauty of the dawn chorus as the birds awaken. I'm glad you appreciated the candle-lit ambiance. Sometimes its nice to turn everything off for just a little while. More

MET Belize is a place full of excitement, adventure, breathtaking views and experiences. It is truly an immersive and personalized experience to visit. It is not often I can stay at a hotel, and feel that I have become part of the family, turning a 3 week trip into a 3 month trip. Any birders, this is your hotel. As... More

My boyfriend and I only stayed one night and did a one day ride at MET, but I wish it could've been much more! I could've stayed there forever! The Bevis family took great care of us, especially Arran and Alyson, both while we were staying and on our way back to Belize City! The rooms are wonderful! Very cool,... More

This is a blissful place: off the grid; in the jungle; built the way the Maya have been building for centuries ..... and the Maya knew what they were doing which means that you don't need air conditioning since the heavy thatch roofs keep the heat out of the rooms and air is continually moving through the windows .....
