Belize is located below the Yucatan peninsula and borders Mexico to the north and Guatemala to the west. In the south, the Mayan Mountains provide a magnificent backdrop to the quaint village of Pomona, and the sights and sounds of the jungle captivate the imagination of travelers from the moment one arrives. The region offers a wide range of accommodations from the most basic guest house to fabulous 5-star hotels, but the locally owned Davis Falls Inn offers everything a traveler could want at reasonable rates.
THE STANN CREEK DISTRICT
The Inn is located in the Stann Creek District, known for its uniquely beautiful undeveloped wilderness, and home to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s only jaguar preserve. Through conservation efforts, Belize is demonstrating that humans and nature can live in harmony. The jaguar is an important symbol in Belizean Maya culture and folklore. Davis Falls Inn provides travelers with the opportunity to catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures while trekking through the jungle. On a morning outing, hikers can take in the mountains hidden behind the mist, and enjoy the music of songbirds and the waterfalls that provide life to the land and all its inhabitants.
Davis Falls Inn arranges visits to the area’s unspoiled beaches and ocean for boating, snorkeling, scuba-diving and swimming. It’s possible to make friends with a sea turtle or witness dolphins swimming nearby. You can also kayak down a waterway or discover the abundant wildlife along the barrier reef.
Davis Falls Inn Inn is close to the largest Maya population in Belize. These people are the descendants of those who built the temples that now lie across the country, covered in vegetation that has hidden their existence for centuries. Tours to experience Maya culture in the town of Punta Gorda, the epicenter of indigenous culture, can be set up by Davis Falls Inn. Enjoy a traditional breakfast at the Inn followed by a visit with the natives to learn about their way of life.
Whatever your interests, Davis Falls Inn will be your guide, providing all the services necessary to get the most out of your visit. The Inn offers a restaurant and full bar, rooms with AC, cable, and concierge services. Best of all, staying at Davis Falls Inn supports the local community. The family behind the business goes above and beyond to make one’s stay memorable. Whether traveling alone or in a group, you can expect to be welcomed with kindness and a smile.
Their sister organization, Untame Belize specializes in fun group activities, including ATV tours of the jungle, trips to ancient Maya ruins, hiking trips, and cultural tours of local Maya and Garifuna villages, including classes where participants can cook traditional foods from scratch such as chocolate and coconut fish stew.
