The Cayo District Hotels

Black Rock River Lodge


  • Remote, beautiful setting
  • Eco-conscious management


  • You're stuck here for somewhat pricey meals and tours unless you have a four-wheel drive vehicle

Fodor's Review

Some 800 feet above limestone cliffs and the Macal River gorge, Black Rock has one of the most beautiful settings of any lodge in the country. The well-shaded cabins have stone floors and custom-made hardwood furniture and views across Black Rock canyon. Eco-conscious management runs the lodge on hydro and solar power. Room rates are reasonable, starting at around BZ$230 including tax. However, since you're a 35-minute drive (about BZ$70 or more by taxi) from San Ignacio, partly on a narrow, single-lane dirt trail, by necessity you'll probably take all your meals here (three meals a day here run around BZ$115 per person including tax and service) and do most tours with the lodge. Tours tend to be more expensive here than if booked in San Ignacio.
