My journey to Belize started with driving from Belize City to the Hummingbird Lodge. Miles and miles of beautiful jungle, crops and orchards lined the roads. Once you hit Hummingbird Highway, the drive is beautiful. It was not too hard to find the lodge during the day. We came in at night, which i do not recommend doing. Once we found the white painted rocks marking the turn in, we drove up the long fruitful driveway to an open clearing dotted with a few houses and freshly mowed grass. The hosts, Michael, and his son, Cameron, greeted us through the pouring rain and helped us unload our luggage for our three day stay. The location of the lodge is absolutely beautiful. A river wraps around the entire yard and has multiple swimming holes and tons of wildlife. We spotted toucans in a tree on the property our first morning and a tiger heron by the river. The lodge has over 150 different kinds of edible plants on its grounds. Its also located close to the Belize Zoo. The caretaker of the land, Jaime, was extremely nice and answered all of our questions about the jungle around us!!!! Overall, you will not regret visiting this lodge. Friendly people, amazing wildlife and an unforgettable experience await.
