An Amazing Belize Adventure
As many reviewers have said, Orchid Garden is on a beautiful section of land and serves wonderful meals. However we'd like to single out the amazing tours and vendors they work with. Every guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area of Belize that they were showing us.
Alfredo, the in-house guide, is such a wonderful man. When he showed us around the Belize Zoo, he really knew a lot about the animals and plants and their history at the zoo. When we'd walk up to the fences around exhibits, sometimes the animals would come up to him, giving us a lot closer look than we'd ever get at a zoo anywhere else. He is also very knowledgeable about Belizean/Mayan history.
All of the other guides were wonderful as well, we even had an Archeology student guiding us around the ATM cave and a member of one of the families of workers who had helped excavate the site initially, taking us around Lamanai.
The hotel itself is sort of a charming blend of a nice summer camp and a jungle resort. We also liked that it was situated in any area where you could really see the countryside and the Belizean people.
If you want to spend your week sipping icy drinks by a pool and going to a spa this is probably not your place. However if you'd like adventure but would like the convenience of being guided/helped by people who really know the area, this a great option.
Thanks to everyone there for a great time.
