Black Rock Lodge


Black Rock Lodge has a unique and stunning location situated on the banks of the Macal River and overlooking the Black Rock Canyon. The lodge has just 14 cabins that all have verandahs that overlook the Macal River and are situated along pathways surrounded by tropical foliage and Belizean hardwood trees.

The lodge is in a remote location and off grid, so sustainable tourism is at the heart of its operation. A mountain spring supplies fresh water and hydro-power to generate electricity, and solar panels supplement the electricy to the lodge. Electricity is conserved, however, and rooms have ceiling fans not air-conditioning.

Rooms include the simple Classic Cabin, Deluxe, RiverView and Waterfall Cabins with either two queen beds or one king bed and two newly built and stylish River Front suites.

Dining occurs in the spacious open air dining room beneath a large thatched palapa roof. Guests dine communally and the lodge seats guests at different tables each night. Breakfast and lunch can chosen from a varied menu, dinner is a set menu that changes daily.

Onsite activities include tubing and canoeing on the Macal River, hiking the numerous trails, early morning birdwatching, night walks and mountain biking. *Note. some onsite activities are at an additional cost, enquire for more info.

Pool A small pool has recently been built allowing guests to cool off after their adventures.

Our Comment: Black Rock Lodge offers visitors the chance to engage in a wide variety of adventure, cultural and nature activities whilst being able to enjoy the incredible natural landscape. This is a birdwatchers paradise as over 200 species of birds have been seen here and brightly coloured tanagers and honeycreepers can be spotted in the tree opposite the dining area.
