We recently spend three nights at Gaia over Thanksgiving. We stayed in the Waterfall Suite which was absolutely amazing. We cannot speak enough of the exceptional service we received - even before checking into the resort. Gaia arranged a private transfer for us from Belize City International to the Lodge and then arranged a transfer to Maya Flats Airstrip for our flight to San Pedro.
We were uncertain of the options for food in the area so we went with the all-inclusive package. As self-proclaimed foodies, do not stay here only for the food as you will be disappointed. The steak was wonderful while some dishes were mediocre at best. Again, come to Gaia for the scenery, service, and absolutely relaxing experience that is sure to await you.
Tips: Its usually cooler in the mountains so be sure to bring layers if going during the off or rainy season - you will be thankful.
Bring bug repellant! And then pack more bug repellant - you will need it.
Worth a little extra to take the flight on Tropic Air to Maya Flats and transfer from there. I do not recommend renting a car during rainy season.
Buy alcohol at the duty free shop and get mixers on the way - it will be far cheaper then the resort.
