Fodor's Expert Review Black Rock River Lodge
On Macal River, 13 miles (22 km) upriver from San Ignacio, San Ignacio, Cayo, Belize Fodor's Choice
Some 800 feet above limestone cliffs and the Macal River gorge, across from Elijio Panti National Park, Black Rock Lodge has one of the most beautiful settings of any lodge in the country. The well-shaded cabins have stone or tile floors, custom-made hardwood furniture, and stunning views of the Macal River. There's also a spring-fed swimming pool. Savvy, eco-conscious owner Cameron Boyd runs the lodge on hydro and solar power and keeps room rates low. However, because you're a 35-minute drive from San Ignacio (mostly on a narrow, single-lane trail), you'll need to take all your meals here (they don't come with the room rate) and do most tours with the lodge.
- remote, gorgeous setting
- eco-conscious management
- isolated setting means you're stuck here for somewhat pricey meals and tours
