We spent 2 nights here after a 7 day birding trip with a guide. It was a great place to practice our new skills independently. Everyone was super friendly and the food was delicious in the restaurant— well-presented, fairly-priced and just perfect. The pineapple rice with

Thank you for your review. I so enjoyed reading it because I strive to make sure everyone has a wonderful experience. I have a wonderful staff who are very helpful and always ready to assist. Bocawina is an awesome place because it’s the only resort property inside a national park. It’s a true rainforest, with 6 waterfalls, large wild Fig trees, tropical flowers, loads of wildlife both small and large. Last year the Biologists working with the university of Belize, set up many cameras studying the habitats of the Jaguars. They discovered that Bocawina is alive with wild cats. The Bocawina Falls trail is a major corridor for the Jaguars and Pumas. But not to worry as they travel at night. During the day, the birds are alive with song and at night the Jaguars, Pumas, Ocelots, Jacarundis, Marguays, Anteaters and Peccaries roam around. We know this from seeing the footage the Biologists show us when they check their cameras. It’s unbelievable. The one thing that is very important when coming to Belize, is bring bug spray! After many years of testing different ones to see which works the best, I found that 100% deet works great. You can purchase it at Walmart’s in the states. Also, just something to remember from my past experience. The first time I came to Belize on vacation, I stayed at a small resort in Hopkins, it was a rainy afternoon, so I stayed in my room and read a good book. I had purchased some mango cookies at the local Chinese market and had them sitting on the nightstand. I was so engrossed in my book and grabbed some cookies to eat without paying attention to them. Suddenly, I felt something crawling around my face. Here I am eating cookies with ants all over them. Talk about a panic moment! You have to remember that you cannot leave food around unless it is wrapped good or in a ziplock bag or container. But then, the producers of “Naked & Afraid” would think that was good protein!!

It is hard to know where to begin because owners Don and Stasha immediately took us in as if we were members of their family and arranged for the most extraordinary tour guide, George, with such deep knowledge passed down from his Mayan ancestors that just walking around the

Being right at the trailhead for Cockcomb hiking trails was so convenient. The self-guided hike to the top of the Antelope Falls was amazing! Saw a howler monkey on the Bird Loop. As with many roads in Belize, reaching the resort from the smooth highway was unpaved and bumpy.

Hello, What is the easiest way to travel to the rain forest from San Pedro? Thank you
You can fly from San Pedro to Dangriga, and we can arrange land transportation from the local airstrip to the resort. This takes about 20 minute drive. For rates and bookings please contact our frontdesk.

What the best why to get there from City & what can I expect to pay round trip?
Hello Cathi, There are a few options for travelling to our resort from Belize City. The quickest way is to take a 15 minute domestic flight from Belize City to a town called Dangriga, where we can pick you up and drive 20 minutes back to the resort. Another option is we can send a shuttle to pick you up in Belize City and drive 3.5 hours back to the resort. The costs are: 1. Flights $90 US per person one way, or $160 return plus $50 one way or $90 return for the shuttle from Dangriga. 2. Shuttle from Belize City $200 US one way or $380 return (note: this cost is for the shuttle, not per person) If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at 1 844 894 2311 All the best, Brendan Gordon Sales & Reservations Manager Bocawina Rainforest Resort & Adventures
