This part of our trip to Belize was absolutely the tops for me. The lodge itself is so clean and full of interesting information and set in gorgeous area with the lagoon and pond on either side of the building. Mick and Angie are very welcoming. We arrived later than expected, but within minutes we had a lovely lunch in a stunning setting. Every meal we ate here was beautifully prepared and eating with our travelling companions from many different countries was probably the highlight. We used the lodge as a base to see Lamanai and to do several birding trips. The guide for a couple of bird watching outings was Ruben. Boy, he really knows his birds. A birding highlight was seeing Jabiru flying right above the lodge. Walking with Ruben just along the quiet dirt road was quite amazing. So many sightings while just taking a stroll. We learned a lot about the community of Crooked Tree and about the cashews, a major crop. We are planning on going back for longer!
