Clarissa Falls Resort Review

The low gurgle of nearby Mopan River rapids is the first and last sound of the day at Clarissa Falls Resort. Warm and friendly owner Chena Galvez and her family have spent their lives on a cattle ranch here, on a rolling 800-acre expanse of grassy pasture. Over the years Chena and family have built a small colony of homey thatch cabañas (around BZ$150 double). If you're on a tight budget, there's camping (BZ$15 per person) and, for students only, rooms in a bunkhouse and three meals daily for BZ$90. The open-air restaurant serves tasty Mestizo dishes at modest prices. You can tube on the river or play Frisbee golf on the 5-hole course. A half-day horseback ride is BZ$80–BZ$100. A shuttle to and from the international airport near Belize City is available for BZ$250 one-way for up to four persons.
