We had the best time of our holiday in Belize at the Howler Monkey Lodge. Mel and Ed, the Belizeans who own and run the lodge, were so welcoming, gracious and informative. The lodgings are rustic, clean and cozy. We had cabins overlooking the river and it was amazing to surrounded by the jungle. The breakfast and dinner that are part of the stay were some of the best home cooked belizean cuisine we had on our trip. Mel even made sure I was able to get a good meal as I am a lactose intolerant vegetarian. The banana pancakes were sublime. Ed toured us around the Altun Ha ruins and enlightened us on mayan culture and history, as well as a tour of the colorful local winery. In all it was an unforgettable experience that wouldn't have been half as special without our great stay with Mel and Ed and their family. Thanks again.
