  • 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.
  • Guests are always welcome to arrive earlier than the check-in time and enjoy the property and its amenities until their room is ready.

The ruins are located in a rich jungle setting, teeming with wildlife. Come prepared for hiking and climbing the tallest building in Belize, Ca’ana. Parrots and  monkeys are seen regularly. This is the largest Maya site in Belize, housing maybe 15,000 with another hundred thousand or more living in the ‘suburbs’ along the causeways. You will visit the central core of the city–the entire site is about 75 square miles. Be sure to climb Ca’ana, Belize’s largest building at 141 feet high, for a spectacular view.  Depart after lunch and stop along the way for a swim in the refreshing Rio On Pool in the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve.

Yaxhá

23Sep

YAXHÁ

Yaxhá is an amazing “freshly prepped” Mayan site just across the border from Belize in Guatemala. Restoration is newly complete – but still ongoing. The only thing it lacks are crowds! The architecture of this site will astound you. There are several opportunities to climb to the top of a temple and look down on other temples and to see how this city was built adjacent to nearby natural lakes. This park is also a great place to find wildlife, and an even greater place to witness how strangler figs do their magic to take over a space in the forest.

Drive Time from Table Rock: 2 hours, on paved highway and unpaved access roads

Adventure Level: Moderate.  This tour starts early and involves loads of walking.  For those who want to take the challenge up a notch, be sure to climb to the tops of the temple ruins.

What to Wear & Bring: Shorts or lightweight long pants, shirt, and comfortable walking shoes. Valid passport required. If you do not hold a passport from the USA, UK, or Canada, please check Guatemalan visa requirements. Don’t forget your US$20/BZ$40 per person to pay your border crossing fee. Extra water, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and insect repellent are also recommended.

*Restrictions: This tour is not for those who suffer from car-sickness. Be sure to check the visa requirements to enter Guatemala if you do not hold a valid US, UK, or Canadian passport.

Duration: Full-day tour.

  • May be joined with guests from other establishments
  • Includes licensed guide, transportation to and from the lodge, lunch, and entrance fees
  • Does NOT include border fee of US$20 per person
