We recently spent 3 days at the charming Cabana at Hill Bank Lodge in the Rio Bravo Conservation Area. We had the good fortune of having Marcos as our guide throughout our stay. He went out of his way to guide us through several activities including birding, night time wildlife viewing, canoeing on the lagoon etc. it is an amazing... More

We stayed here in April, with our 2 sons, age 6 and 7. What a wonderful time we had at Hill Bank. Yes, the accommodation is basic, but what a place to be ! Nature at it's best. I am amazed we were the only guests at that time. Our tour guide, Marcus, was wonderful. He showed and told us... More

The bumpy ride is worth it every step of the way. Though the accommodation there might be rather basic for some, the property, which happens to be a protected area, is truly blessed by mother nature. You're waken up in the mornings by numerous sounds of birds. Birding in the morning is a must for those that enjoy bird-watching. The... More

This was our first visit to Belize and my husband and I were drawn to Programme for Belize and Hill Bank by the promise of unspoiled nature and the important conservation work that was being done there. We were not disappointed. From the moment that I emailed for information, we were treated to excellent and attentive service. Thyra answered all... More

We spent 2 days at Hill Bank and 2 days at La Milpa so can compare and contrast. Both are run by the Programme for Belize, which is part of why we chose to go - helping to support their research and efforts at sustainable development in their preserve of over 260,000 acres seemed a better use of our tourist...

i visit Belize a lot for its varied and outstanding habitats and wildlife. Hillbank has become a regular stop for me. i have stayed in both the cabanas and the dormitory rooms. Both are great. The dorm rooms are actually very private and comfortable and represent a great value. With both savannah and broafleaf habitats nearby, and the New River... More

My wife, adult son, and I recently visited Hill Bank Field Station in the Rio Bravo Conservation Management Area. All logistics were arranged via Thyra Thompson of Programme For Belize [--------]). She was VERY helpful, responsive, and thorough in setting up the visit including accommodating my wife's dietary concerns. Our guide, Jorge Estrella, met us at the Caye Caulker Water... More
