  • Prices listed above are in U.S. Dollars and are per person, based on double occupancy.
  • Please read our Policies for additional information.

Please consider the following before booking at Table Rock:

  • We are 100% energy self-sufficient, using solar electricity backed up by generator power to offer 24-hour electricity. However, to help preserve our delicate solar-powered energy system, we do impose certain restrictions on electricity use:
    • We offer USB outlets ONLY in each guest room. There are 110V charging stations located in our guest common areas for the charging of larger items, such as laptops. We do have accommodations for our guests who need to use a CPAP machine – please contact us.
    • The use of hairdryers, curling irons, clothes irons, hot rollers, and other high-wattage electrical appliances is PROHIBITED.
    • There is no air conditioning. Industrial ceiling fans are provided in all guest rooms and common areas.
    • We do not offer mini-fridges, televisions, coffee makers, or hot plates in any of our guest rooms.
  • It does rain in the rainforest, and at certain times of year if there have been heavy rains, it is possible that flooding may occur which may temporarily close our complimentary river activities and certain adventure tours. These closures are for your safety. Tours cancelled by the tour operator due to safety issues will be refunded, however there is no monetary value or refund applicable to closed complimentary on-site activities.
  • Although we do our best to keep insects to a minimum by fully screening guest rooms, cleaning guest rooms daily, providing excellent drainage for water, and raking excess forest debris, we are in the jungle and insects, as well as other wildlife, are part of our surroundings and help keep nature in balance. Most insects are harmless and merely a nuisance, but there are other bugs, such as scorpions or bees, which can give a painful sting or be a concern for those guests with allergies.
  • It is HUMID! Should you have chronic breathing issues or be highly sensitive to molds, need your clothes to dry immediately, and do not like to sweat or to have occasional moisture in your linens, then you may want to reconsider a stay in Belize, or consider a location in town that offers climate control.
  • The roads are rough. If you are not comfortable driving for periods of time on bumpy, unpaved roads, then you may not enjoy your time at Table Rock or in Belize. A 3-mile portion of the 5-mile road from San Ignacio to Table Rock is still unpaved, as are the roads to many of the most popular tourist attractions in this part of the country.
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet service is available for all of our guests with use of their own computer or handheld device in the common areas. The Internet at Table Rock is made possible by multiple towers beaming the signal to us from town. This connection can be affected by rainy and windy weather, as well as by local anomalies such as power outages in town or the number of people using the system at the same time, so it may be slower or unavailable from time to time.
  • We are not equipped for self-catering. There is no kitchen facility available for guest use. We kindly ask that guests be mindful of keeping any food items in guest rooms tightly sealed to prevent unwanted pests. We provide fantastic meals, but are also more than happy to recommend restaurants nearby. We’ll even call and make a reservation for you!
  • We are isolated from the noise and nightlife of town because our guests like it that way. We do kindly ask that you be respectful of other guests while you are here.
  • A 50% deposit is required to confirm your package reservation. The balance will be charged 45 days prior to your arrival date.
  • We gladly accept Visa, Mastercard, US Dollars, and Belize Dollars.
  • All cabaña and cabin rates are based on double occupancy.
  • Package rates for children must be quoted separately. Please inquire.
  • All charges will be made in Belize Dollars at the prevailing exchange rate, which is currently 2 BZD: 1 USD. Your bank or credit card company may apply fees for facilitating a foreign transaction.
  • CANCELLATIONS: If something comes up and you need to cancel or change all or part of your reservation, and the cancellation is 45 days or more from your arrival date, you will be refunded all but a US$50.00 administration fee per room. Cancellations or changes made after this are non-refundable. No shows and cancellations for circumstances out of the hotel’s control (i.e., cancelled flights, weather, etc.) cannot be refunded. For this reason, we STRONGLY encourage the purchase of travel insurance.
  • No refunds are available for any pre-paid meals not used or any unused portion of pre-paid vacation packages.
  • Any adventure tours cancelled by the guest less than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled date incur a 50% cancellation fee to cover the cost of the meals, pre-paid entrance fees, and guide’s salary. Tours cancelled by the tour operator will be refunded in full.
  • Our complimentary on-site activities hold no monetary value and discounts will not be given should any of these activities be unavailable due to acts of nature, safety concerns, or other reasons.
  • Check-In: 3:00 PM / Check-Out: 11:00 AM.

5 Most Romantic Things to Do in Belize

03Feb

1. FEED EACH OTHER THE FOOD OF THE GODS

The Mayans believed that chocolate held intense, mystical powers and was associated with the great gods that ruled their culture. And who can blame them? I mean, it’s probably not far from the truth. Chocolate still holds the allure of decadence, romance, and for some serious chocolate lovers a bit of ecstasy. Belize is home to dozens of small cacao farms, where the fruit that is the source of all chocolate is still grown in the traditional organic Mayan way. The best and freshest of all chocolates can be found here at family businesses like Belize Chocolate Company and Ajaw Chocolate, where the chocolate is made by hand with craftsmanship that is still fit for the gods.

2. JUMP INTO A WATERFALL TOGETHER

Is there any image more romantic than you and your favorite person frolicking in a fresh, clear waterfall? How about something a bit more thrilling? A bit more shocking? A bit more adventurous? Don’t just swim in that waterfall together–jump off it hand in hand. Western and southern Belize are peppered with waterfalls off all sizes and intensities. From tiny babbling falls spilling over limestone smoothed by the millennia to gushing behemoths barreling like a freight train into valleys one thousand feet below. And while we wouldn’t recommend taking the plunge off the latter, there are some stunning spots for just this thing throughout Belize. Make the leap at tons of gorgeous locations, like The Showers in Cristo Rey Village (pictured here), or from the big rock at Big Rock Falls. The possibilities for the most exciting type of romance abound!

3. INDULGE IN A PRIVATE CANDLELIGHT DINNER

It has long been held that food is the way to a person’s heart. Add private table service, loads of candles and flowers, and a backdrop that makes you feel as if you’re in a screensaver, and you have the perfect recipe for romance. Whether you’re indulging on the coast, cayes, or the jungles of Belize (pictured here at Table Rock Jungle Lodge), a private dinner will make even the hardest-hearted of us swoon.

4. RELAX WITH A COUPLE’S MASSAGE

Not much needs to be said here. I mean, seriously, experiencing the pleasure of a deep tissue massage in the beauty of Belize side-by-side with your love. . . well, it kind of speaks for itself. In-room and spa massage for couples is available at most well-appointed lodges and resorts throughout the  country.

5. SAY “I DO” IN THE RAINFOREST

Destinations weddings continue to grow in popularity, and the romance that surrounds tying the knot in exotic locations such as Belize adds to their allure for both the couple getting married and the family and friends who come to witness their union. With the second largest barrier reef in the world, Mayan temples, and dense jungles, there is a location that is perfect for almost everyone. Whether you plan your wedding through a professional wedding consultant, like Signature Belize Weddings, or the resort you’re staying at, like Table Rock Jungle Lodge, you’re certain to begin your new life together in a setting you will never forget.

ATM Cave

22Sep

ATM CAVE

Actun Tunichil Muknal, better known as ATM, is the acclaimed “Cave of the Crystal Maiden.” This site has been extensively documented by National Geographic and is quickly becoming one of Belize’s must-do adventures.  This one-of-a-kind experience is for fit and active people who do not mind getting wet, moving through dark spaces, and who can tread lightly!  After the initial 45-minute hike to the entrance with three river crossings and a swim into the cave’s innards, you will wade through knee- to shoulder-deep water for close to an hour before being asked to remove your water shoes to enter the dry cathedral-like upper chambers of the cave.  The rooms are littered with delicate Mayan pottery and the crystallized remains of fourteen humans.  There are no walkways, rails, glass, or other partitions separating you from the artifacts, nor is there any installed lighting.  Just you, your guide, a helmet, and a headlamp. An unparalleled experience!

Drive Time from Table Rock: 1 hour

Adventure Level: Strenuous.  This is only for those who are moderately fit and not afraid of water, darkness, or the occasional tight space. It’s a bit of a hike to get there and tricky climbing in some spots, but a must-see if you’re up for it.

What to Wear & Bring: Bathing suit under shorts and a t-shirt, close-toed water shoes or tennis shoes, and an extra pair of socks for walking in the dry potion of the cave. Insect repellent is recommended, and be sure to bring a change of clothes and shoes for the ride home. No flip flops, open-toed shoes, men’s speedos, women’s bikini bottoms without shorts, or exposed midriffs.

*Restrictions: Moderate fitness level, close-toed water shoes, and extra socks required. Minimum height 40 inches. Swimming ability is a plus, but not required. Cameras are prohibited.
