“First Class in the rainforest.”

“This was the second part of our Belize family vacation. With our 4 children, ages 16-26 we ventured into the southern rainforest of Belize after our stay for 4 days at Ambergris Caye for sun and fun. The 1 hour flight from San Pedro to Punta Gorda was beautiful. A Cessna Caravan that flew at about 2,000 feet, so the view was wonderful. Upon arrival at the airstrip we were greeted by Vince and his helper in a beautiful safari Range Rover that had plenty of room for our entire family and luggage. The service was nonstop perfect from that point until we left 4 days later. When we arrived at the lodge we were greeted by the manager couple Christine and Devine. They were so friendly as well as all the help. We took tours both days with Vince, which is a must. Waterfalls, Mayan ruins and lunch with Vince’s family home in a Mayan village was a highlight. We ate at the resort every night, it won’t disappoint. Celebrated my birthday the second night in the open air dining room with an amazing downpour tropical rainstorm just a few feet away. We enjoyed the howler monkeys in the nearby trees and saw a couple of toucans as well. A great experience for a family to experience other cultures first hand. The meals were amazing at the Machaca Hill. Great wine selection too! All in all a great time was had by all. I want to go back again soon, next time in the winter season. Our kids will always remember this trip. Very memorable.”

“A private and pleasant getaway spot overlooking the rainforest. Howling monkeys, colorful birds, beautiful flowers, massage room, and food to live for! The rooms are spacious and open air so you feel a part of this pristine environment. Bicycle through the orange groves and into town to meet locals and truly get a feel for the gentle Mayan people. Kayak on the Rio Grande which is at the base of the property.The restaurant cooks local food to delight and amaze the palatte and the eyes. A mojito beside the pool in the midst of the rainforest, a trip to the caves and the ruins with Vince the tour guide who is so informative and hospitable. He invites all into his home to experience everyday life of the Mayan people and his wife will cook a Mayan feast for all. The Canadian couple managing the resort are amazing hosts…experienced, attentive and so full of life and passion that you can’t help but fall in love with Machaca Hill…I’ll be back with friends to share this jewel and all its amenities and amazing food.”
