Black Rock Lodge is a magical eco- lodge committed to offering a fully sustainable experience in the San Ignacio area of Belize.
.
Black Rock Lodge is located along the Macal River in the middle of the jungle, filled with birds, monkeys, spiders, lizards and other tropical animals.
.
It's a prime location to explore the cultural and archaeological wonders of this part of Belize. Black Rock Lodge offers their guests plenty of action on-site.
.
We enjoyed tubing down the Macal River on their complimentary tubes, hiking the gorgeous trails, swimming in their natural pool and hanging out on the River floating dock. The highlight was the 'Night Insect Hike' for the boys, (who knew a family of tarantulas were living close to our cabin!!) Momma decided to sit this one out!
.
We enjoyed fresh organic meals made with local ingredients every day, by the kind and friendly staff who were eager to share their knowledge of the area. Our stay at the magical Black Rock Lodge will forever be etched into our hearts.

Room tip: This is a magical place. 7 miles down a dirt road in the middle of the jungle. All cabins were lovely!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at the Black Rock Lodge in Western Belize.
The lodge is located in pristine jungle environment in the Mayan Highlands, with a beautiful clean river running very close by, and on property. The river is very swimmable, and free tubing is also available. Continuing on the theme of water, the lodge also maintains a beautiful clean pool which is not chlorinated; ( they flush it regularly to prevent algae build up ).
Lodging is in private cabins, all very nice with the newer ones having a few more amenities. We stayed in their cheapest cabin, and it was very well appointed, and clean with a view of the river.
Meals taken in the semi outdoor dining area are delicious, and the vast majority of the food items are produced on the property of the lodge, so freshness and organic are guaranteed.
For bird watching enthusiasts, ( like me ), the variety of aviafauna on the property, and nearby is quite amazing. Visitors can explore on their own, or hire one of the very knowledgeable and friendly guides who work on site.
There are Mayan ruins nearby, including Tikal, in neighboring Guatemala, and a visit to one of these, ( or more ) is well worth it.
Although the lodge is somewhat off the beaten path, it is still not necessary to have a car, as lodge drivers will pick you up at a variety of locations, including the airport
All of the staff are very efficient, friendly and courteous; a definite highlight of our Belizean vacation

Black Rock was 10 stars around the board. Amazing location overlooking a beautiful bend in a river and huge cliffs. Each cabana feels like it’s built right into the jungle and very private. The food is amazing and different every day. Everyone is very welcoming, nice, and knowledgeable about Belizian and Mayan culture and the plants and animals all around the lodge. AND it’s built and operated amazingly sustainably, using local plants and animals for food, solar panels and non-damming hydro power, and fresh spring water to drink and swim in!

This is a magical place. 7 miles down a dirt road in the middle of the jungle. The birds and the howler monkeys are the only ambient noise. There is a river for swimming, tubing, and canoeing. There are hikes through the jungle. The cabin porches open onto the forest and you can see no signs of civilization.

The resort is clean and comfortable, the food is great, and the bartender makes a great rum punch and dragonfruit mojito. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Our stay was too short and we will be back!

This lodge was amazing! The room was beautiful. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The food was so delicious. And because it is a small resort it feels very intimate. We felt like we were staying with friends. They can help you find tons of things to do in the area including tours of caves, bird watching, hikes, and river tubing, to name a few. All at very reasonable prices. If you’re going to Belize and want an authentic inland jungle experience, this is where you want to stay. We cannot wait to return!
