Very cool place. Neat to see the jungle side of Belize. Highly recommend going to ATM. Saw many birds, scorpions, tarantula, and frogs. Also went to Tikal which was an entire day but Black Rock made the tour extremely easy crossing into Guatemala.

We just spent 10 days at Black Rock Lodge and loved so many things. The location is wonderful: high above and overlooking the Macal River in a tropical dry forest bordering a national park. We are serious birders and found the avian biodiversity here stunning. The guides are all knowledgeable on local bird ID and a couple of them are in the top 10 for the country on eBird. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The open-air dining hall overlooking the river sets up a great mood. I recommend this and would definitely like to return! I like the off-the-grid feel to the place, being 6 miles from the nearest paved road and run by renewable energy. I came here to relax and de-stress from my job and Black Rock Lodge helped me accomplish that!

We just returned from an amazing 3 night stay at the lodge. Many thanks to Lloyd, Virginia, Amlicar, Derek, Mason, Victor, Henry, Carlos and the rest of the staff for truly making our stay special. We had so many great chats and learned so much about the culture and region. The property is tucked back about 20 mins off the main road through cattle pastures and citrus groves. Upon arrival you’ll be treated to the main lodge, which is open so you can take in the view and the birds and the jungle. The rooms were clean and ours did not have AC, but the fans kept it cool and once the sun was down was comfortable for sleeping. Our kids (10 and 14) loved the rope swing on the river with their new buddies from the lodge. All the guests enjoyed sharing adventures of the day and ideas for the next day’s itinerary. Don’t miss a horse back ride at the farm 2 miles down the road it was another highlight for us. Beautiful views, friendly horses and an exciting ride through the jungle complete with a stop for fresh coconut water. It is nothing like ‘a trail ride’ in the US. We also had Lloyd as our guide to the Mayan ruins, Xianantunich. He did a great job sharing his knowledge of the Maya people and the site itself. It was incredible.

To get to Black Rock you need to negotiate a rough dirt road for 8.5 miles. A higher clearance car is recommended, but we made it with a regular sedan. Lots of people just get shuttled in. Once you're there, it's awesome. The main lodge overlooks the river in a deep canyon. There's birding, hiking, tubing down the river (definitely go down the waterfall!) and they'll take you on all the typical excursions nearby if you want. The cabins are simple but adequate. They all have views over the forest and we saw some amazing birds just sitting in our hammock by the cabin. No wireless except in main lodge if that matters to you. You pretty much have to eat in the restaurant for your meals, but the prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back here!

Our family immersed in all the amenities that Black Rock Lodge had to offer. Up early for birding with staff experts, excellent breakfasts that always included fresh fruit, hiking up the mountain with a cave stop, back down to the Macal River for a swim and a nap, excellent simple dinners (with rum punch), and a night hike with staff experts. Accommodations were excellent, clean and well thought out (hammock on each patio). The staff was extremely knowledgeable and anticipated everything we needed from beach towels to binoculars to tour planning. Special shout out to Victor, Goldborn and Yuri. The Black Rock is a place we will visit again.
