Perched in the verdant hills above the Caribbean coast of southern Belize, the lodge is a self-contained sanctuary from the everyday world. Belcampo lodge (former Machaca Hill) is Southern Belize’s gateway into the jungle; ideal for discerning travelers seeking a pristine eco-retreat. Situated on a private reserve, the serene lodge is bordered by the Rio Grande, miles of uninterrupted forest, a marine reserve, organic gardens, Mayan ruins, and various cultural and geological sites. The Main Lodge is the communal heart of the resort, offering grand vistas of the coast, Maya Mountains and an endless view of the untouched and pristine rainforest.
Each of the 12 lodge suites is carefully sited to maximize privacy and an intimate connection to the adjacent jungle. The screened verandas project dramatically within the canopy giving one the sense of being truly part of the rainforest and afford incredible views as well as frequent wildlife sightings. The suites epitomize the concept of indoor-outdoor living. Vaulted beamed ceilings, terra cotta flooring, all-natural textiles and bench-crafted wood furnishings further emphasize the fusion with nature that graces all aspects of the Belcampo experience. All rooms have plush linens, hairdryers, air conditioning and safes.
Providing maximum accessibility to the surroundings for both day and night exploration is Belcampo Lodge’s top priority and guests are encouraged to take a variety of extraordinary daily tours. A wide range of cultural and eco-minded guided excursions, abounding with wildlife, appeal to all guests. Specialty guides are available for in-depth birding, fishing and SCUBA.
