We went here for 3 nights for the Mayan adventure package in early January, and it was absolutely perfect! We adored our tour guide Francisco, he was so knowledgeable! He was by far one of the best tour guides we have ever had! The whole property is beautiful, and the staff was great! We loved it and if we ever...

This is definitely a couples lodge and should be considered on anyone's bucket list. We visited in early/mid January and were grateful to have traveled from a cold location so we had long pants, closed toe shoes, and multiple layers. There is no heat or a/c in the buildings and no glass in the windows, only screens, whether it be...

Beautiful - welcome drink (fruit juice with or without rum) was a nice touch. Located 300 steps above river with small falls in both a jungle and savannah setting. Numerous outdoor activities. Cabanas were very nice; gorgeous night sky, too.

We spent 4 relaxing days at Gaia River lodge, including Christmas and we could not have happier. The rooms were tasteful and comfortable, we loved the large screened windows in River and the ubiquitous sound of the waterfall below. The time down by the river was relaxing and even more beautiful than the photos suggest. The food was fresh and...

We just came back from the most wonderful trip to Belize where my husband and our two kids (one teenager and one young adult) stayed at Gaia Riverlodge in the rain forest and then traveled to Matachica Beach Resort on the island of San Pedro. Both accommodations are lovely, with excellent staff and great food. At Gaia, we had the...

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food is good. The location is perfect for some outdoor activities. We did the hiking tour and the cultural tour which were fun. We also...

From the moment you arrive on this spectacular, remote, jungle paradise you know you're in for a treat. We arrived just as the sun was setting over the beautiful pine ridge mountains and were greeted with fantastic hospitality and delicious welcome cocktails that we enjoyed on the deck overlooking the five sisters waterfall. This place is magical. The rooms, the...

Gaia felt like the Jurassic Park set with the friendliest staff you could ever hope for. Our stay was very comfortable and we loved the way the staff treated us like family. The property is situated above a spectacular waterfall with a great swimming and lounging area. To our great surprise and delight, there were fewer biting insects here than...

Giai was truly a hidden gem in every way...the rooms, the view, the food, the staff, especially the staff, Aisha, Sam in the garden, Talbert, (amazing guide .driver) and everyone else, fabulous in every way. Going there is truly a lifetime experience. The pictures here don't do it justice. Going to the Mayan ruins is a must.

Gaia was an amazing place and the staff was incredible. Unfortunately we ended up here during tropical storm Otto and even though it's a heavenly place, there isn't much that can be done here in a rain storm that lasts for days. Good news is we spent the evening playing board games which turned out to be fun. The tours...
