We had three nights here after staying at Lamanai. Our room was outstanding, very comfortable with a fantastic bathroom. Spent a lot of time on the verandah looking at the birds. Plenty to see from right there. Plenty of self guided walking trails and a good path through the

We spent 5-nights in the Villa (luxury two-bedroom cottage) in December 2018 and can't wait to go back. It is an amazing lodge in a great space with some of the best staff I have ever encountered. I have been to rain forest lodges all over the world (Peru, Panama,

We sipped wine while taking in the view from this temple mound.
I would take the shuttle van so as to see the country side. The driver (who is also a guide for the Lodge) will point out interesting plants, animals and geography. You will miss a lot by flying over it all. The van is quite comfortable.

Hi there. I thought the same on the Discovery package and didn't do it. Also because we went on a tour of Lamanai one day, so the free tours would be wasted that day. The meals are flat rate and not cheap. $45 per person for dinner and $30 for lunch with free (and great) breakfasts. The guided walks/tours typically are 1.5 to 2 hours, and you don't want to cut those short as they are awesome, so that's what you should plan for on costs for that. This is definitely the place for birds of all kinds. Do the early morning walk around the lodge with the guide for sure. Just walking around yourself during the day you will see alot. We went to the escarpment and saw raptors and very pretty view. It is a 40 minute bumpy ride though. We also went to Laguna Seca which is a nice lake and much closer and saw a good number of great birds as well (must go with a guide to get the most out of it). The night drives also are alot of fun and you can see owls, Northern Potoos which are cool and a few others (small quantity, good quality) as well as interesting animals. If you keep going out to their site under "Birding Experiences", they list the birds that are seen each day if your son wants to look them up and get familiar with them. I think you can pretty much forecast what you're going to do and do the math and that should give you the answer on the Discovery Package. Good luck!

Hi Melinda Thank you for reaching us. Over 9 miles of groomed trails surround the lodge which is possible to explore on our own as they have clear signage and we also provide a map of the trail system. You may like to do a guided tour if you wish to explore archaeological walk, a medicinal walk or a birding tour. Regarding the meals, we do have a wide choice of vegetarian dishes as well. Breakfast is include in the rate while for lunch & dinner, one can choose different course as we have set menus for lunches & dinners with a wide choice.
