I spent three weeks at Maya Lodge for the second time this year, this time alone as my wife was travelling in Indochina. Placencia is even more laid back in the October off-season than during high season. But, Maya Lodge with its TV, Internet, full kitchen, spacious luxury and location in the village will keep you from being bored if you tire of exploring or run out of books. The shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars are still open in the off season but prices are even more affordable (including the Maya Lodge rent). Locally grown fruit and vegetables are plentiful. Finally, few folk will be interested, but Maya Lodge is an ideal spot to set up a portable amateur radio station. I made almost 8,000 contacts with other stations in those three weeks, including those in exotic locations such as India, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Moldova, Cook Islands, Guam, Australia, Greenland, et al.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Maya Lodge was built by an English ocean lover and displays much of the native wood and architecture of Belize. Both bedrooms are large and furnished with a double/queen bed. Each bedroom has a private full bath with hot shower. There is also a loft with 2 twin beds and several ceiling fans throughout the house. Food can be purchased locally and prepared in the full kitchen. Two hammocks are provided and can be set on the covered deck or on the upper crow's nest where the Maya Mountains and gorgeous sunsets are viewed. Swimmers can use the canal at the back of the house or walk to the beach in a few minutes. ... more less
