Gaia Riverlodge: Your 2024 Belize Adventure Begins Here!

by Larry Waight

Vacations that transport you to the Caribbean shoreline are soothing and relaxing for mind and the body, but there are only so many things you can do when you’re headquartered on the coast. If you’ve had your fill of sandy beaches and palm trees, why not make 2024 the year you change things up and opt for an authentic adventure in the heart of Belize’s lush greenery?

Cradled by Mother Nature (and named after the Greek Goddess of Earth herself) Gaia Riverlodge is the definition of a green escape. It’s situated within the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and sits at the apex of the breathtaking Five Sisters Waterfall. Here, every one of your senses will be engaged, thanks to everything from the soothing sound of  cascading water to the fragrant aroma of the pine forest.

Reset and Refresh With Gaia

Looking to reset your equilibrium? Find the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure at Gaia.  Even before arriving, the drive down the Chiquibul Road will transport you to a rarified world brimming with life, from native birds and butterflies to an expansive verdant forest.


Green Globe Award-certified, Gaia offers guests eco-luxury with a side of tranquility. Charming thatch roofed cabanas dot the property, surrounded by the tropical foliage.  Choose between a mountain view and waterfall view cabana. Or, opt for something a bit more secluded with the Private Riverside Villa

Whether your desire is to achieve peace and tranquility or there’s an Indiana Jones spirit lurking within your soul, have your fill of activities that offer a wide variety of experiences during your stay. Naturalists and yogis adore Gaia just as much as adventurers and thrill seekers. In fact, how does a restorative retreat in the heart of nature sound? 


Between March 8th and 11th, Gaia will be hosting a restorative women’s retreat, offering yoga, meditation, cleansing, and creating. These four days are designed to be transformative for women who know how much re-energizing and renewing can do for their health.

A Gaia Riverlodge sojourn is so much more than an ordinary escape. Fruits and veggies used to prepare meals are culled right from their organic garden onsite, and the culinary wizards preparing meals will delight you with menu choices that are delicious. When you’re not immersed in onsite activities, take advantage of proximity to mystical caves and archaeological sites, each an inspiring reminder of Belize’s colorful past. As a guest, you’ll also have access to the freshwater swimming pools of the Five Sisters Waterfalls, and the property’s natural trail is a trekkers’ dream.


Imagine how it feels to relax among the trees, awakening each morning to a world of natural harmony? Why imagine when you can see this splendor for yourself? Will 2024 be the year you commit to finding your true self in paradise?
