Pook’s Hill is a small lodge situated within a 300-acre private reserve and adjacent to the 6000 acre Tapir Mountain Reserve. A network of trails allows guests to explore the rainforest, and the lodge is known as an excellent destination for birdwatching. Other activities onsite include tubing down the Roaring River and swimming in its refreshing natural pools. The lodge has 11 thatched cabanas, each with private bathroom, fans, and hot water, and several overlook the Mayan plazuela site that lies at the lodge’s center. The main lounge is a perfect place for relaxing, with hammocks and views into the forest canopy, and meals are eaten communally in the dining room, which is lit in the evening by oil lamps. We are the closest lodge to the ATM cave, and a comfortable two hours from the International airport. We offer a range of tours including tailored birding, canoeing, ziplining, cave tubing, and visiting the Mayan sites of Tikal, Xunantunich and Caracol.
