We recommend three nights at Blancaneaux as activities in this part of Belize are plentiful.
Hop on a mountain bike, or go riding through the jungle (Blancaneaux has on-site stables). Visit nearby ancient Mayan ruins, take a dip in the Privasson River, or go caving. The night-time jungle walks are not to be missed.
For those looking to relax, enjoy a lazy picnic by a hidden waterfall, or simply spend the afternoon in a hammock and admire Blancaneaux’s resident hummingbirds.
Blancaneaux Lodge is located in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, and is a bumpy three hour drive from Belize City airport.
For those keen to avoid the drive, we recommend chartering a small plane, and landing at the lodge’s own airstrip.
The climate is tropical in the Cayo District, and rain is to be expected at any time of the year. We would recommend visiting Blancaneaux Lodge during Belize’s dry season, which is between December and April, to avoid the heaviest downpours.
