we highly recommend casa del caballo blanco!
my husband and i stayed 3 nights at the casa while exploring the cayo and were really pleased with everything.
the property is gorgeous -- looking out into the valleys and mountains of green rainforest was breathtaking -- and while the place is right off the main road, it's very isolated so it's quiet and you feel like you're in a sanctuary
the thatched roof cabanas are spacious, clean, and well kept -- good bed with mosquito net, hot showers, mini fridge -- there are quite a few bugs (moths, mosquitos, and gnats) but that is to be expected in the climate/region
the dining was incredible -- although the prices (pre-arranged) are more expensive than what you'd pay in town, it's well worth it for the convenience, the private dining room, and the delicious culinary skills of ms. grace, their chef -- we enjoyed local dishes in multiple course meals
the location is ideal -- about a mile out of town on a paved road (very important) so you have the convenience of being near everything but not right in the middle of all the noise and people
ms. jo and mr. vance, the owners, were very helpful and kind when we were making reservations and they booked our tours for us (which were great)
can't say enough about what a wonderful place this is -- don't stay anywhere else in the cayo!
