“It was everything we expected. The location in the jungle overlooking the crystal clear Macal River was hard to beat, and the staff couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful. The guides were remarkable, immersed in the local ecology and passionate about sharing it with guests, When a guide spotted a rare Solitary Eagle from the lodge/s main deck, other staff rushed forward to hand startled guests binoculars, telling them they were witnessing something special indeed. The food was great, the excursions were all memorable, especially the ATM Cave. What will compel us to return. however. is the sense that this is more than just a resort, it’s a unique place owned and run by people devoted to preserving it as a natural wonder.” – John D.


Reconnect with nature and reignite your spirit of adventure in the serene setting of Black Rock Lodge.

The pristine forest and abundant wildlife around every corner…. this is Belize’s nature paradise. And because of that, we take conservation seriously. Since 1989 we’ve been producing our own clean and renewable energy sources, both through solar and hydro power.

In 2007 we constructed Belize’s most advanced waste treatment system, a “constructed wetland” for treatment of wastewater. We also have an on-site organic farm where guests can interact with our chickens, goats, and more. Many of the dishes our restaurant (link to page) crafts are made with the seasonally grown and locally sourced ingredients that come straight from our farm and local vendors. At night, we serve a “Chef’s Choice” family style meal, where we come together as a family and celebrate the joy of gathering together over a good meal.

What to



Black Rock Lodge


As we are known now, formed in 2007 but its inception began more than 25 years earlier with the adventurous and pioneering spirit of the Sherrard Family. Caesar Sherrard had emigrated from South Africa in the early 1970’s and together with his young family, set up residence in the Macal River Valley. One fortuitous day he and his son Julian, decided to explore upriver and happened upon the Black Rock Falls and surrounding canyonside property. They quickly fell in love with the magical location and enquired with the Belize government about leasing the land from the Queen.
