Pook’s Hill, Cayo

In the very heart of the ethereal jungle of Belize, Pook’s Hill is home to hundreds of species of Belizan wildlife.

You are, after all, in the midst of Belize’s dense rainforest – home to an astonishing variety of wildlife. Over 300 different species of tropical birds flit through the canopy or drop down to glistening streams to drink and feed. Mature mahogany trees, Spanish cedar, ceiba and a proliferation of bushes and ferns are the natural habitat of buzzing insects, iguanas, tapir, jaguars, howler monkeys, humming birds, spectacled owls, emerald toucanets…

And you. If you’re staying at Pook’s Hill, the rainforest is your home. This jungle lodge borders the Roaring River and Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. It’s the ideal setting if you like your wildlife exploration and want to discover the rich Mayan, Caracol and Tikal archaeological heritage of Belize.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
