Fodor's Review

About 3 miles (5 km) from La Milpa Mayan site, this field station is a combination lodge and exotic summer camp. Stay in rustic thatch cabañas with private bath or in a dorm that sleeps 30. Since you're in a remote area, you'll likely want to eat all your meals, generally simple Belizean-style dishes such as rice and beans with stew chicken or pork, at the field station, although you can book a room without meals starting at around BZ$200. Nine hiking trails are maintained around the lodge, and guides are available to take you to La Milpa and other Mayan sites. In spring and summer you can visit archaeological teams working at La Milpa. You'll likely see lots of wildlife, including spider and howler monkeys, ocelots, peccaries, deer, and possibly even a jaguar.
