Rock Lodge's stunning rainforest surroundings offer abundant
opportunity for exploration and adventure. Whether canoeing
down the pristine Macal River, horseback riding to the Flour
Camp caves, or hiking up the various Canyon trails, the abundant
diversity of the local flora and fauna is inspiring.
200 species of birds are possible to sight on Black Rock’s property and the Lodge is one of the rare places in Central
America where you can observe all three species of Toucan
in one morning. In addition, the thrill of spotting either
the Orange Breasted Falcon or the White Hawk soaring above
the Canyon along with the auditory delight of tracking the
distinct call of the Slaty-Tailed Trogon add to the excitement
of visiting Black Rock.
Rock Lodge's passionate commitment to environmental stewardship
and sustainable operation is evident in every aspect of
your stay with us.
electricity for our beautifully situated, riverfront cabins
is supplied by a custom hybrid system consisting of micro-hydro
and solar power and we practice energy conservation throughout
the Lodge. 100% of our water use is supplied by a nearby
mountain spring and the Lodge is able to reduce water use
through the installation of water conserving appliances.
In addition, the wastewater from our staff quarters is processed
through a "constructed wetland" which uses plants
and aerobic activity to more completely clean the water.
Our knowledgeable and helpful staff come from the surrounding
communities of San Ignacio, Bullet Tree, and Santa Elena.
We complement our delicious restaurant fare with fresh,
organic fruits grown on site and use the compost from our
restaurant to fertilize the garden.
