This luxury lodge is built into the green foothills of Machaca Hill, overlooking a pristine stretch of the Caribbean coast. The 12 cabins, just outside Punta Gorda, back onto coffee and rum plantations and are pleasingly spacious. The natural surroundings are a big draw, especially the nearby fly fishing.
Known locally as ‘PG’, the most southern town in Belize is a great base for exploring the nearby diving and snorkelling opportunities (though it has no beach of its own). You’re surrounded by tropical foliage that hides villages with interesting Mayan ruins. The local Indian tribes have handicrafts at the thriving local market.
It is here that you can make a lasting impact in a community by installing a fuel-efficient eco-stove in the home of a low income Mayan family.
