We invite you to explore our unique eco-lodge nestled in the dense rainforest above the Macal River in the Mayan Mountains of Belize, 2.5 hours west of Belize City, south of San Ignacio.
Over 390 species of birds are possible to sight on Black Rock’s property and the Lodge is one of the rare places in Central America where you can observe all three species of Toucan in one morning.
In addition, the thrill of spotting either the Orange Breasted Falcon or the White Hawk soaring above the Canyon along with the auditory delight of tracking the distinct call of the Slaty-Tailed Trogon add to the excitement of visiting Black Rock.
Black Rock Lodge's passionate commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable operation is evident in every aspect of your stay with us. The electricity for our beautifully situated, riverfront cabins is supplied by a custom hybrid system consisting of micro-hydro and solar power and we practice energy conservation throughout the Lodge.
100% of our water use is supplied by a nearby mountain spring and the Lodge is able to reduce water use through the installation of water conserving appliances. In addition, all of our wastewater is processed through "constructed wetlands" which use plants and natural aerobic bacterial activity to more completely clean the water, leaving no water contamination at all.
Our knowledgeable and helpful staff come from the surrounding communities of San Ignacio, Bullet Tree, and Santa Elena. We complement our delicious restaurant fare with fresh, organic vegetables grown on site and use the compost from our restaurant to fertilize the garden.
