The fragrance of orchids permeates the grounds. The sound of cascading water is never far away – the gardens of Gaia River Lodge feature a river and picturesque waterfall.
You’re sitting on a rock, beside a pool surrounded by dense green jungle. A waterfall catches the sun. Exotic birds flitter through the branches of the trees. These are just a few glimpses of the paradise known as Gaia River Lodge – it has tropical gardens that stretch off to a picturesque river and a wonderful, waterfall-fed jungle pool.
Plan to stay at Gaia on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Belize and you can experience an idyll that is picture perfect, as well as offering a range of involving activities. So you could find yourself riding a horse along a quiet trail through natural wilderness, or taking a hydro-tram through the depths of the rainforest. Or exploring the ancient civilisation of the Mayans, or simply relaxing in a hammock.
