Table Rock Helps Students Succeed

Table Rock’s generous guests answered the call to help others again this year by making it possible for us to award three laptops and one tablet to top performing kids in need as they prepare to move on to high school next year. Thanks to great travelers wishing to make a big impression while leaving a small footprint, Table Rock matched the donation of two refurbished Dell laptops with a Sony laptop and an Apple iPad.

For a country where high school is is not free and is only optional, and where the average dual-income family brings in less than $25,000 USD per year, the financial strain of advancing one’s education is not always a possibility. For those students whose families do find the funds to send them on to high school, the tools we know to be necessary for success aren’t always able to be had. Laptops and tablets, items most of us consider indispensable for learning and producing quality work, are prohibitively expensive for many families in Belize.

So, it is with great joy and appreciation that four outstanding students graduating from primary school receive these wonderful gifts of technology that will undoubtedly create a huge positive contribution toward their success as students at the secondary level.  Congratulations to Raonie, Joanna, Lorely, and Kasie!

WANT TO HELP? PACK FOR A PURPOSE.

By packing for a purpose each time you travel, you can help local communities with important needs and social projects. Putting just a few items–soccer balls, pencils, printer ink cartridges–into your suitcase can add up to a big difference throughout the year for those who live in the places you visit. Table Rock supports two local schools with needed school supplies and technology. Check out how you can help at Pack for a Purpose or contact us at info@tablerockbelize.com!

JUNGLE INFINITY POOL NOW OPEN!

01May

Don’t miss out on enjoying the bliss that is our new Jungle Infinity Pool. Tucked into the soaring trees of the surrounding jungle and built into the face of a hill overlooking the Macal River Valley, this newest addition to Table Rock doesn’t disappoint. After years of dreaming and six months of intense construction, the pool not only gives our guests a gorgeous view and a fabulous spot to beat the heat, but it also provides more beautiful open-air spaces to relax, unwind, and rediscover themselves.

How did we do it? Well, it all started with building a new road on the property so that we could reach the spot where we knew the pool would be perfect. A couple of weeks and a large excavator later, and voila!–new road. Then we began the slow and painstaking process of working with the natural contours of the land to best fit the pool to the environment. Nobody likes skimming the pool, but we love our trees at Table Rock and we didn’t want to loose the feeling of the surrounding forest, so only a bare minimum of trees were removed during the building.

Then came the addition of bathrooms, an outdoor shower, a great pool deck with loads of seating, a breezy pavilion filled with comfy sofas and ceiling fans overlooking it all, and finally a bridge for access to and from the dining room and bar. All of this and Wifi access to boot! You’ll never want to move from this fabulous new space! Your holiday time with us is limited, though, so be sure to make time to enjoy the pool as well as all our other onsite activities and our amazing guided excursions, too!
