Gaia Riverlodge and Matachica Resort, set worlds apart from each other, are offering the perfect 7-night stay in Belize. If you’re curious about what this enticing package entails, then I’m here to share with you what you can expect from each resort along the way. One thing is certain:  you’ll get to enjoy one destination through countless unique and unforgettable experiences. 

Gaia Riverlodge: A Haven in the Heart of the Forest (Western Belize)

Your journey begins with three nights at Gaia Riverlodge. Here you will take in the mountains and experience the jungle in a multitude of ways. The Gaia team will personally greet you at the International Airport and provide ground transportation to the lodge. On your way, you will get to witness the picture-perfect views of Western Belize. Throughout your three-night stay, expect adventure at every turn.

Explore the untamed beauty of Belize through expertly curated excursions that promise to satisfy your wanderlust. Embark on a day trip to the legendary ruins of Caracol, the largest Maya site in Belize. Along the way, you can visit the famous Rio Frio Cave and cool off in the crystalline waters of Rio On Pools. 

On the following days,  explore the underworld of Western Belize at the Offering Cave. This one is for the true thrill seekers. Accompanied by a guide, you’ll ride in a Polaris for 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15-minute hike to reach the cave entrance. Inside, you will encounter beautiful stalactite and stalagmite formations. As you descend deeper into the cave and explore its chambers, you’ll uncover ancient artifacts like Mayan “pots” used in the rituals of offering to the Mayan deities. These encounters are sure to evoke questions and stories, leaving behind thoughts of ancient times.

Or, for those seeking something less intense, explore the ancient Barton Creek Cave, where you’ll paddle your way through its depths. Choose to cap off your adventure with an adrenaline-pumping zip-lining experience or a visit to the enchanting Green Hill Butterfly Farm – the choice is yours.
