Description

A great place to stay before crossing into Guatemala. Very friendly owner. Has a big covered area with tables next to the kitchen with power and wifi. Feels and is safe. The butterfly house was interesting. Watch out for tarantula holes if you're pitching a tent.

There hadn't been any checkins for a while so I decided to drop by and see what's up.

They were closed during covid but are currently in the process of reopening, starting with the butterfly garden. Currently cabins aren't open but they let me camp. It was raining so I was very grateful to be able to pitch in the kitchen patio. Super friendly family, but everything is a bit disorganised until they fully open this summer. at the moment only one flushing toilet available, but nothing else. (showers, kitchen, etc aren't hooked up). Fine for a night's stay before Guatemala border early in the morning. 15 bzd.

Great place to camp walking distance from the ferry to ruins. Across the road. Showers with cold water, dry clean toilets, few cabanas, a common kitchen place with a fridge! Charged 10B$ per camping tent and the owner let us stay under the roof next to the kitchen. Awesome and helpful person.

Thanks to everyone who posted about this place. Just had a very difficult border crossing and this place is a fantastic and close place to stay. Safe, clean, good food. FYI the people at the border (on the way in to Belize) who sell car insurance are definitely there no later than 6 pm and in our case they had already left by 5 pm. You can call (501) 823 2319 or 621 7013 if they are closed. Otherwise you will need to leave your car at the border and get in a taxi with a driver who knows an insurance agent and go to find the agent to purchase insurance. It sounds bad but seems to be a common (and the only) option. You cannot leave the border in your car without insurance, there were police on the road out checking everyone had insurance.

Great stop before Guatemala. Eco-camping at its best. Restaurant was closed while we were here as well.

Perfect for preparation prior to crossing the border. Restaurant closed whilst I was there, but excellent options down the road. 14Belize / night

Florentine is the name of the owner and his family runs the place. It's one of the more "down to earth" lodges in the area. Pit toilets can be a bit smelly in the rainy season but the frogs seem to love it. They kept singing to us till late hours. I think we'll stay another day and enjoy the coldest beer we've seen so far on the trip.

A good place to place to stay before crossing the border into Guatemala – PROS: Camp Kitchen, fast free wifi (near restaurant), warm (solar) showers, restaurant on site – CONS: Composting toilets (stinky), one of the two camp dogs will not leave other dogs alone, not cool – 5USD/person/night

It is a cozy and convenient place just a couple of kilometers from the Guatamalan border. Trek Shop is a "jungle resort" mostly accomodating backpackers, but they have a parking area behind their buildings that overlanders can use. Should be able to fit in quite a few small campers here, even if the parking is a little overgrown. Here is a nice little restaurant with free WiFi.
