Finally visited The Lodge at Big Falls after years of travel plans being thwarted by work commitments. Delighted that I finally made it to Rob and Marta's fantastically relaxed forest hideaway. Toledo is a fascinating region and the guides take great pains to introduce one to the community, culture and stunning natural charm of the district but after a couple... More

We were booked here by Audley travel. Arrived by air. Met by Estevan for transport to LABF. Greeted by Marta with welcome drink and short tour. Taken to one of several private lodges on the river with full unlimited electric and water. Three wonderful days to relax, experience wonderful internationally inspired cuisine, swim (both pool and river available), and visit... More

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a generous, erudite and accurate review. I agree with every word. Marta and I and all our staff look... More

Friends and I stopped in at The Lodge at Big Falls more or less by accident in February this year. We were riding dirt bikes across Belize and having a fantastic trip but by the time we got down near Punta Gorda we'd had our fill of $30/night hostels and, unfortunately, a particularly bad experience the night before with bedbugs...

During our recent visit to the Toledo District of Belize my husband and I had the good fortune to stay at the Lodge at Big Falls for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed the few days that we got out of town and stayed in this pristine rainforest/Mayan region at the Lodge, with Marta and Rob Hiron. They have done... More

We couldn't have imagined a better first stop for our honeymoon. Upon our arrival at the Lodge at Big Falls we were greeted by our guide Steven who is very knowledgeable about the area's natural history. He was more than eager to tell us about all of the bird species and flora and fauna in the area. Having been a... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge at Big Falls from March 9-13, 2014. It was a thoroughly enjoyable visit in every way. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The Lodge property is ideally situated at a bend in the Rio Grande river, allowing easy access for tubing and kayaking at your leisure. The bird life on the... More

We were so glad that the Big Falls was recommended by Audley travel. We flew from Tikal via Belize in small planes and arrived at Punta Gorda to be met by Stephen who was our guide during the three night stay. At the Lodge we were warmly welcomed with a cool drink by Marta, and offered a snack lunch. Our... More

We only stayed for three nights (26/03/14 to 01/03/14) but it was three nights in heaven. The setting of the lodge is great, with the cabanas being on a peninsula, surrounded by the river, which is slowly meandering to the sea. We were greeted warmly by the staff and soon made to feel at home. Although the accommodation was classed... More

My wife and I stayed at the lodge for 4 nights last month and had a fantastic time. The lodge itself is beautifully positioned in the forest and has all the comforts you need - good food, very comfortable rooms, and friendly staff always on hand - the freshly brewed coffee with cinnamon buns was a real hit! Enjoying these... More

I've always wanted to stay in a thatched cottage but never imagined that the thatch would keep the cottage cool and fresh. Also loved the shower with its own private garden lush with birds of paradise. All the meals at the Lodge are prepared fresh from local ingredients and are excellent from perfectly ripe fruit to fresh baked breads and... More
