My friend and I had a great stay at Back-A-Bush. It was a truly unique and wonderful experience. The guesthouse is on a farm in a Mayan village. When you're there you feel truly immersed in a totally different culture and simple way of life. The guesthouse was great and Elsbeth's food was so delicious. She is a great cook.... More

Back-a-Bush is a fantastic place to stay! The guest house is situated in a very nice little village, easily accessible by bus from Punta Gorda. The owner, Elsbeth, is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was very good, clean and spacious with good beds. The meals, made by Elsbeth herself, were all delicious. Around the house there are all... More

Me & my woman ended up here in the middle of a traditional Mayan village by coincidence in mid December and didn't know what to expect... But as soon as we met Elsie, the amazing woman who runs the place, we knew we had come to the right spot! She combines her low key, but yet cozy, guesthouse business with... More

Back-a-bush is a peaceful farm in a small Belizian village close to Punta Gorda by bus. Elsbeth and Naud are charming, friendly and down-to-earth hosts. As previous reviews have said, food here is wholesome and tasty (we opted to have 3 meals there) and the room was clean and comfy. The farm-grown coffee was fantastic. We really enjoyed talking to...

Why they don't have more reviews, I'll never know! Back-a-Bush is the BEST and also least expensive ($30BZE/$15USD a night for a bed) and the meals are INCREDIBLE and again, very inexpensive!!! (breakfast/dinner $12BZE/$6USD; lunch $10BZE/$5USD) I hope the prices are correct, check their website just in case. I was in Toledo for 2 weeks, I stayed with Elsbeth and... More

I'm not sure where to start! Everything about this place was fantastic. I happened to be the only person staying for 2 out of the 3 nights and the owners Elsbeth and Naud made me feel like I was an old friend come to visit rather than a fee paying backpacker and kept me well entertained the whole time. Elsbeths... More

Last week I stayed for 2 nights at Back-a-Bush, although the rain was poring down I had a great time!! Back-a-Bush is the perfect spot to relax and chill out; enjoy the great food which all is grown and/or produced locally: so we had Nopales (cactus), Yucca, Calalou and freshly picked and roasted coffee from their own farm. The neighbors... More
