Black Rock Lodge has a unique and stunning location situated on the banks of the Macal River and overlooking the Black Rock Canyon. The lodge has just 14 cabins that all have verandahs that overlook the Macal River and are situated along pathways surrounded by tropical foliage and Belizean hardwood trees. The lodge is in a remote location and off grid, so sustainable tourism is at the heart of its operation. A mountain spring supplies fresh water and hydro-power to generate electricity, and solar panels supplement the electricy to the lodge. Electricity is conserved, however, and rooms have ceiling fans not air-conditioning.

Our Comment: Black Rock Lodge offers visitors the chance to engage in a wide variety of adventure, cultural and nature activities whilst being able to enjoy the incredible natural landscape. This is a birdwatchers paradise as over 200 species of birds have been seen here and brightly coloured tanagers and honeycreepers can be spotted in the tree opposite the dining area.
