The Lodge at Big Falls is Toledo’s premier inland resort offering a central location and easy access to our natural wonders, archaeological treasures and a host of adventures.
“A marvelous experience! We deeply appreciate the care you take with everything from your hospitality to the wonderful staff, terrific facilities, great food etc. And you are so fortunate to have Steven (birding guide) who is fabulous! He was a highlight of our three weeks in Belize.”

Facilities & Services:
Our spacious cabanas have been designed to achieve a living space which subtly merges the internal and external environments. The rooms are all individual cottage style cabanas (sleeping up to four persons) with a full en-suite bathroom providing hot and cold water. Each cabana is thatched with bay-leaf palm, a traditional Belizean thatching material.
Beautifully tiled floors, ceiling fans and fully screened, wood louvered windows offer a cool well-ventilated living area. Colourful local and regional soft furnishings complete the décor, many of which will be available to purchase in our gift shop.
Landscape plantings around the cabanas have been selected to attract birds and butterflies close to the guest’s living space and this wealth of flora and fauna can be enjoyed from your own thatched verandah. The Lodge delivers your choice of juice, coffee or other drinks to your verandah each morning where you can sit and enjoy the cool air or survey the early bird activity.
There is a Resource Centre where guests can consult a core collection of books covering birding, butterflies, the fauna and flora of Belize, Mayan archaeology and travel and touring within Belize.

Of Special Note:
“The Lodge at Big Falls was a delightful place to stay. The cabanas were comfortable and spacious, the food delicious (incredible banana smoothies!),and the grounds full of wildlife.”
“One morning while having breakfast we saw twelve species of raptors soaring above the canopy including Gray-headed Kite and Black Hawk-Eagle! Meanwhile, a nearby fruiting tree hosted Collared Aracari, Bananaquit, Golden-hooded Tanager and Red-legged Honeycreeper! “
“Butterflying around the lodge was also excellent with such gems as Red-bordered Pixie, Crimson Patch, Zebra Beauty, Memnon Giant-Owl and Blue Morpho flitting around the compound. A naturalist’s paradise!”
The Guatemalan towns of Livingston and Puerto Barrios are just seventy minutes ride by skiff across the Bay of Honduras
