Gregorio Chun and his older brother worked closely with 'big cat advocate' Alan Rabinowitz as he established Cockscomb as the first jaguar reserve in Belize. Gregorio lived with his family in this jungle as a boy, never seeing electricity or wearing shoes until age 14. Now he is Chief of Maya Center (a Mopan Maya village) and runs this tidy... More

I highly recommend staying here for a real cultural experience.The Chun family was wonderful and very helpful and hospitable. We stayed in the cottage nearest the road. It had indoor plumbing. Be prepared for one step above camping. The beds were clean and comfortable.The shower was a cold trickle and the toilet had no seat to sit on. The food... More

One of the hardest reviews to make. Depending on your take i could see people giving our experience a 1 star to a at least 4 star. It was all how you look at it. Our experience. Booking by email went well and the Gregario was professional through the booking and stay. The accommodations are VERY rustic but clean. The... More

Excellent! We stayed with the Chun family for two nights in May. Gregorio, Julian and Vidal are excellent hosts. Our room was simple, clean, and the shaded porch was nice. Good filling meals and a small store for basic supplies. Gregorio helped us arrange all of the details of our stay, including transportation and tours. He has a great personal... More

Very basic but nice lodging in Maya Centre, located right along the Southern Highway. We stayed in a first floor room that has a bedroom, bathroom with unheated shower, and porch. Home-cooked dinner is provided for an extra fee in a shared dining area. We highly recommend the Heart of Palm Stew----and we promise, you won't walk away hungry. Next... More

We enjoyed our time at Tutzil Nah Cottages. We took 2 tours through Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary with Julian Chun, a night tour and a morning bird watching tour. Fantastic! We saw an ocelot on our night tour, only about 10 feet away for about 5 minutes – definitely the highlight of our trip. It was an exceptional sighting which... More

We had arranged to be hosted by Julio Saqui at Maya Center, but unfortunately Julio was not at our designated meeting place and night was falling and we had no Plan B for where to stay or how to explore the Cockscomb Basic rainforest the next day! While waiting anxiously at the bus stop, we talked to a couple of... More

Tutzil Nah cottages are a wonderfull little place to stay, basic but clean and have everything you could need. Gregerio and his brother are both very knowledgeable guides and if you take one of their tours through the jungle they will spot things the untrained eye has no chance of seeing. The home cooked meals are also highly reccomended after... More

I stayed at Tutzil Nah cottages for 2 nights so that I could do both a night walk and day hike in the Cockscomb Basin Sanctuary. Gregorio and his family were wonderful hosts and the food was very good. My guide for both hikes was Julian, and he was great and such an enthusiastic guide...I'm a wildlife biologist and I... More

An absolute MUST DO for nature lovers coming to Belize. Gregorio and his family were so welcoming, the food was superb and the accommodations clean. Its important to note, this is an Maya village. Resources are tight, don't come in thinking you'll get air-conditioned modern comfort. Tutzil Nah Cottages is the perfect base for exploring Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary (Jaguar Reserve)... More
