Our stays at Casa have always been beautiful. Weather is generally cooler than on the coast. The surrounding are green and filled with wildlife.
The accomodations are very comfortable with in-room shower, bathrooms, and a mini-fridge. The view from the cabanas is green and lovely, overlooking the Mopan River valley, you can see into Guatamala.
Two meals a day were included in the cost of our stay and the food was wonderful. Meals typically include Mayan or Creole fare, so you get a taste of local fare.
The staff at Casa is very friendly, always helpful, and very knowledgable regarding surrounding attractions. Casa is close to many great Mayan ruins. We visited all the local one's in Belize and took a day trip to Tikal in Guatamala as well. Travel time from Casa to ruins ranges from 15 minutes to several hours. We were able to visit more than one ruin per day while staying there except when we went to Tikal.
Casa del Caballo Blanco is also home to a budding bird rehab center. It includes a great trail through about 20 acres that the owners are reforesting to provide habitat for released birds. This trail and the road that goes along the edge of the property provide great opportunites to bird. I think we gathered a list of at least 40 species in one morning, just walking the road.
