Lower Dover is an amazing place to stay! The property is great with plenty of things to do. There are fruit and vegetables growing everywhere, animals roaming around (you have to like dogs if you wanna stay there) and so much history.
Maddy the owner is so much fun and by the end of our stay my friends and I were calling her Mama Maddy. She's a great cook and loves to share her knowledge of the area. I loved having dinner with Maddy and the other guests in the dining room, swapping travel tips and stories.
We stayed in the bunkhouse which was perfect for our group of 4. The outdoor shower was refreshing and there's filtered drinking water for everyone's use. I would recommend this place to anyone that's looking for a place to call home while traveling through Belize.
