Pook’s Hill, Cayo

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 to come with a touch of luxury, or want to discover the rich Mayan, Caracol and Tikal archaeological heritage of Belize.
