Quiet location in beautiful surroundings. Near San Ignacio and Mayan monuments. Great owner who will help with day trips (ATM, Xunantunich, Tikal) and everything else. I recommend for a peaceful stay in the countryside near the Mayan monuments with perfect service. Thank You Chena !

Off the beaten track, between San Ignacio and Benque. A beautiful place overlooking the Mopan River Ms Chena is an amazing person...so knowledgeable about local flora, fauna, and the Mayan Culture. She operates a nice li'l restaurant with a great variety of local foods. My favorite is Spagetti Clarissa Falls prepared with a good olive oil, garlic and parma cheese....

This is a magical ranch with so many beautiful birds, playful dogs, and unique vegetation. The rooms have handcrafted thatched roofs and behind them is the flowing Mopan River. Even though it was raining through most of our stay, Chena drove us to the ruins and to the local market to pick out exotic fruits. Chena knows a lot about...

We had a great stay at Clarissa Falls. Chena is a fabulous host who was the extremely helpful from the moment we made enquiries for a booking to the dropping us at the Belize border at the end of our stay. We were sad to say goodbye to Chena and Clarissa Falls. The cabins are very comfortable with great hot...

Not a "hotel," and not really a "resort" either, but what a fabulous experience. I feel genuinely sorry for people who visit Cayo District (or Belize, for that matter) and fail to stay at this magical place. We so nearly booked some routine little hostel in San Ignacio! (Nothing wrong with San Ignacio - and be sure to catch the...

Chena is a wonderful host and cook! She offers fine hospitality to all of her guests. Clarissa Falls is a beautiful location in the Cayo District, and Chena's resort is a comfortable and cozy place to stay. I have been coming here for several years and just made a recent return back this month. Everything was just as I remembered....

We visited Clarissa Falls on our day trip with the rented motorbike from sidewalk sage. We did not stay overnight but had an early diner. The lady who owns the place was very nice and prepared some superb sandwiches. Lovely place to relax!

Chena is not only an amazing cook (really I have to call her a chef), but a very kind and entertaining lady! Everything is made to order and is absolutely delicious - not to mention extremely inexpensive. We had chips and her to die for salsa (fought each other for the last dip), 60 cents tacos (yes, really 60 cents),...

I'm not sure what makes this place more special the owner (Chena) or the beautiful, quaint location? But Clarissa Falls is absolutely wonderful. The beautiful grounds, the delicious food, and the family feeling from Chena make this place a must! We couldn't recommend it more. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

“We stayed in #2. They are simple and clean, but not luxurious - exactly what you should expect from an authentic Mayan hut (with concrete floors, running water, and electricity - but no AC). :)”

“There are two rows of cabanas that parallel the river. The river's gurgle can be heard from all. The cabanas closer to the restaurant will have stronger WI-FI.”
