Back-a-bush is a welcome escape from the tourist trail. Elsbeth is the perfect host and a wonderful cook. Her low impact lifestyle, love of her animals and nature shine through. She can arrange inexpensive but great value tours to local sites including the tiger cave with experienced local guides. Also it is easy to walk to sites in the nearby... More

My friend and me found this wonderful place by accident. First we just wanted to stay for one night, but every day we sad "one more night";) we truly didn't want to leave anymore. From the very first moment we felt like part of the family between Rod producing his tasty belizean coffee, Elsbeth running the farm and all the... More

First we wanted to stay just for one night. At the end we stayed three and we would stay longer if we would have the time. The farm is located in the heart of the mayan culture and beautiful nature. Dogs, cats and ducks say good night to eachother so it's peace on earth! Elsbeth is a charming person who... More

Came to Back-a-Bush straight from a 3 days journey from California... Was really tired, cold (we had a coldfront at the time) & hungry when I arrived. As I walked in to the property I first got a loud welcome from the 6 beautiful dogs (They might seem scary, but just be calm and they will do the same.) All... More

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
