Bird's Eye View Lodge

Bird's Eye View Lodge, on lagoon, Crooked Tree Village, Belize District, Belize

Many of the 20 spic-and-span rooms, all with air-conditioning and all recently refurbished, at this modern concrete hotel have expansive views of the lagoon. There's a two-story main building and an annex next door, covered with bougainvillea and other flowers, and you'll find that the friendly service is consistent with Belize's down-home reputation. The best rooms are the deluxe doubles on the second floor of the original building. Camping is available (BZ$20 per person). The hotel's dining room serves filling Creole and American fare ($$). The lodge also offers many kinds of tours, including a "birding-by-boat" cruise on the lagoon (BZ$250 for up to three people), horseback riding (BZ$30 an hour), and a croc-spotting night safari (BZ$200 for up to three). Transportation from the international airport is BZ$150 for up to three persons.
