The hosts here were so helpful & enthusiastic about sharing their little piece of Belize with us. The grounds include a complex of mayan ruins enshrouded in the jungle. Perhaps one day, it will be fully restored by archaeologists, but for now, it's fascinating to walk the grounds with Madeline, while she explains how the pyramids & other structures were... More

Lower Dover really is an incredible site and a great place to base yourself for sites surrounding San Ignacio. We stayed in the Red Cabana though basic (it's an eco-lodge) it had everything needed for a comfortable six night stay. The home cooked food was absolutely delicious and Justin was very helpful in setting up a tours to the ATM... More

Rooms were comfortable and rustic - well protected to keep out mosquitos. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful in sorting out transport and tours for a good price. The hibiscus wine made onsite was delicious and well worth a try! Walking tours around the Mayan ruins are a must!

I couldn't select May 2013, which is when we traveled. My friends and I found ourselves looking for a place to stay last minute, and stumbled across Lower Dover in a travel book. Our hostess was incredibly accommodating, and took us our exploring the ruins (watch out for snakes!). The food was delicious and worth every penny, and it was... More

This really is a lodge and a field station. Our cabana was private and more comfortable than expected, with warm water showers and pretty colors. We enjoyed the communal meals with good food and site-made wine. Walking the rain forest trails by ourselves was delightful. Justin's relaxed, personal tour of the land--with its unexcavated Maya city that may change how... More

Excellent stay. Great host with well made healthy home food. Main attractions: the land itself is archeological treasure with a lot to discover. The dogs are excellent guides and are very cute/well trained. Great location for ATM caves and other excursion. Only downsides: very hot. Also after sunsets, if you have any light on in bedroom, ++ insects will join... More

We passed by the lower Dover, when travelling from San Ignacio to Belmopan. We decided to go there for lunch, but the property was closed because of archeological research. Nevertheless Madeleine invited us in and gave us a tour on her amazing property! It is hard to describe it. Really one should see it for yourself. There is so much... More

My dad and I had a great time and were graciously welcomed! Lower Dover is a beautiful place to swim in the river and explore the unexcavated ruins. Madeline was a great tour guide, cook, and friend! Bunkhouses were clean and comfortable and the place was nicely maintained. Definitely will have to visit again.

This was an amazing place, I ran in the stream, and spent time alone walking through an onsite Mayan ruin. Most of the dogs were cool, but one was clearly a coward. The family runs it well and has great tips on obtaining goods and services in a country who’s charm is being out of the loop. They have a... More

I should mention that I'm a UW-Madison Alum, and since the owners (and their son) went there, I may be a bit biased...nevertheless I LOVED my stay at Lower Dover. While the walk from the highway where the bus left me was a bit long, it was worth it to be so joyfully greeted by both Madeline and their pack... More
