Our recent three nights at La Milpa was an extraordinary experience. (I rarely use the word "extraordinary", but it fits in this case).
In the middle of a privately held conservation area, La Milpa has jungle, flora, fauna and ruins. The staff is extremely knowledgeable...More
LaMilpa is outstanding for several reasons, listed below. First let me say that we didn't lodge here. LaMilpa was listed in our guide book as an attraction (not as lodging) and since we're bird watchers, we decided to visit. You must call ahead if you're...More
Stayed here for two nights with my wife and it surpassed expectations. Rooms were great, food was great. Marcus provided excellent guiding services for the birding aspect of our trip. We did not go out with the other guide, Melvis, but he was also helpful...More
Stayed here for 4 nights in Nov. 2016. Amazing birds and wildlife that we didn't see anywhere else in Belize. The fox family that lives onsite is pretty tame, easily approachable and easy to take pictures of. After a hard morning hiking in the jungle...More
First I should declare an oblique interest I as much as I work for World Land Trust which was one of the original founders that helped purchase what is now the largest non government reserve in Belize. But it is certainly a great place to...More
We would like to stay at this location, San Agnacio to see Tikal and area, possibly stay at Belopan, on to Belize City and to the Cayes. As New Yorkers who enjoy public transport we rarely drive. So the prospect of driving 4WD along roads is not something I want to undertake. Mud, bad signs, and from the guidebooks say–the occasional bandit. Car from lodge to lodge would be ideal but it may not be possible. Has anyone stayed at La Milpa and traveled along a similar itinerary? Is there a lot of back tracking? The transport part is difficult to get my head around. Many thanks.

In response to the other reviewer's response: you can easily rent a car and cross to Tikal. It needs to be done with Crystal, who were really great, and you need to give them a couple weeks' notice to get the paperwork done... More
In response to the other reviewer's response: you can easily rent a car and cross to Tikal. It needs to be done with Crystal, who were really great, and you need to give them a couple weeks' notice to get the paperwork done. If this is the option you choose, just send them an email and ask them what to expect. They do this for travellers all the time. Best of luck!
