We used Belize "Discount shuttles and tours" for our trip to and from sleeping giant. This shuttle company was amazing- the most affordable rates, safe and courteous drivers who were always perfectly on time (or a few minutes early) to pick us up. They also had a very quick response time via email. would highly recommend!

"All cabinas seemed to be very private - we stayed in creekside."
"If you're willing to walk, book mountain rooms! You're amidst the jungle canopy, you'll fall asleep to monkies & birds."
"riverside rooms and riverview rooms are great. Riverview rooms are very quiet"
