Fodor's Expert Review Rock Farm Guest House

Roar River Dr., Belmopan, Cayo, Belize Fodor's Choice

British expats opened their large, comfortable home on a 52-acre farm to guests as a way of supporting Belize Bird Rescue, their bird sanctuary and rehab center located on the same grounds. In a comfy bedroom on the second level, you'll awake at dawn to a chorus of parrots and parakeets, along with the occasional rooster. Rates here are remarkably inexpensive, and the owners prepare full English breakfasts and comfort-food dinners, served with strong drinks on a veranda with views over the bush. Ask to see the amazing, nearly perpetually in motion waterwheel at the river that provides water for the entire farm.
