My friend and I had a great stay at Back-A-Bush. It was a truly unique and wonderful experience. The guesthouse is on a farm in a Mayan village. When you're there you feel truly immersed in a totally different culture and simple way of life. The guesthouse was great and Elsbeth's food was so delicious. She is a great cook. Rod, Elsbeth's partner, was also very helpful and we were able to purchase some of his famous hand roasted Belizean coffee. Elsbeth helped organize fun activities for us: river kayaking, hiking to a jungle cave and we walked to a Mayan ruin that we had all to ourselves. A highlight was also going to tour a company that made chocolate the traditional way. I loved staying Back-A-Bush and would highly recommend it.
