We finished our trip to Belize here to be close to the airport. Great location to be close to the airport and to visit the Community Baboon Sanctuary. Just stayed one night so I cannot give a full report. Arrived and unpacked and then went to the Community Baboon Sanctuary (CBS) for the Nightime Crocidile Tour. While at the CBS, we saw a large scorpion on a wall. After we arrived back to HML, I saw something move right by the sliding door and found a large scorpion. Since these are seperate cabins, there is a lot less foot traffic. This was not unexpected given the location and the fact that these things live in the area. Not a complaint, just passing on our experience. (We did not even mention it to the hosts.) Slept great. Next morning I heard some of the howler monkeys move through by the HML. Rest of the family slept right through it. I got up, got some of the free coffe and enjoyed a nice morning beside the river. We later went to CBS (highly recommended), came back to clean up an pack, and then left for the airport. These are homemade cabins. If you want a cabin by the river, this is great. Were clean and had good hot water. If expecting a luxury resort, you will not be impressed. We enjoyed it and I would stay here again. Mel and Ed were nice hosts.
