The Lodge

Experience Gaia Riverlodge


Perched atop the magnificent Five-Sisters Waterfalls in Belize’s famed secluded Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, GAÏA Riverlodge, named aptly for the Greek goddess of Earth and the mother of life and all creation, will fulfill its promise to reconnect you to your most authentic and adventurous self.

An hour jeep ride from the more populous San Ignacio area, guests can recharge in their private and spacious cabanas to the waterfall’s sounds. Enjoy the rainforest’s intimacy with its native birds, butterflies, and remarkable flora, set amongst the pink and orange glow of the setting sun.

Remote, private and sustainable by design, we are a proudly Green Globe Award certified hotel. We operate on hydropower and offer an electric tram to transports guests from the lodge to the river. Most of our fruits and vegetables are also farmed on-site by local staff in our Mayan organic garden.

The histories of ancient Maya abound in every cave, archeological site, and preserved artifact. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience our Belizean treasure and grasp how infinitely generous nature can be.
