"A Week of Belize" Package
Due to our central location in Belize, Mama Noots is a great base for you to experience a slice of Belize. During your week’s stay with us, you will have the opportunity to fish or snorkel in the Caribbean Sea, visit ancient Mayan ruins overlooking Guatemala, go cave tubing in one of the largest cave systems of Central America, and experience the longest zip line in Belize all while staying amidst 7,100 acres of untouched wilderness. This package is perfect for couples and families alike who are looking for a balance of adventure, nature and relaxation.
At any time during your stay, you can sign up for the mile and half course zip line which is just a minute’s walk from your casita. You will be escorted to the gear room by one of our experienced guides assuring your safety and fun! When you are ready for some salt water, we will take you to Hopkins Village where you will jump in a boat and either snorkel or fish for a half a day (full day trips are available) in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.
On one of your days being spent at Mama Noots, we will take you on a great half day tour and hike to both the lower and upper falls of Bocawina Falls. On the hike you will see and hear dozens of birds and possibly the resident crocodile! Another great half day adventure is either horseback riding along the Sittee River or tubing down the South Stann Creek from Cockscomb Basin to Maya Centre Village.
One morning right after breakfast, we will set out to the Cayo District to explore the ancient Maya city at Xunantunich. You will cross the river on a hand-cranked ferry and walk around the beautiful grounds of this ancient city. You will see spider and howler monkeys while you learn about the great feats and buildings of the Maya. Once you climb to the top of El Castillo, you will be able to see miles into Guatemala as well as a grand vista of Belize.
All of your days will be accompanied by three great meals from Mama Noots’ restaurant, The Wild Fig. While you are on the road we will arrange for you to have a fresh lunch from a fine establishment along the way.

Since Mama Noots Eco-Resort is also the home to the longest zip line in Belize and Bocawina Adventures & Eco-Tours, it's the perfect match for adventure seekers and nature lovers alike. Our Adventure Package provides you with the opportunity to fly through the jungle from 150' in the air, to experience the rush of rappelling down the rocks of a rushing waterfall to conquering four waterfalls in one day!
On your first full day with us you can choose to either start or finish your day with the thrill of Bocawina Adventures' mile and a half zip line course, with the longest single run being 2,300' long! The course was meticulously carved out of the wilderness, giving you an authentic jungle adventure.
On the next day, you will set out into the Mayflower Bocawina National Park to rappel either Bocawina Falls or Antelope Falls. Antelope Falls is a well worth, rigorous hike that offers a remarkable view of southern Belize and the Caribbean Sea, as well as rewarding your climb with swimming in refreshing, azure pools of water. After cooling off, you will gear up to begin your 500' rappel down the face of the waterfall. If this is your first rappelling experience, we recommend beginning with Bocawina Falls as it's a great introduction to the world of rappelling. On your hike to the falls you may even see the resident crocodile! After a short hike you will gear up to rappel 100' down to the bottom of Bocawina Falls where you can enjoy a swim in the refreshing pools.
On the third day, we start early to conquer an all day hike visiting four of the five waterfalls in Mayflower Bocawina National Park. Throughout the hike you will learn about medicinal plants, see and hear scores of birds and butterflies while making your way through a seven mile hike. Upon reaching Peck Falls, we will take a break and enjoy a deliciously packed lunch from The Wild Fig restaurant. After the lunch break, you will complete the loop with a visit to Big Drop Falls and continue back to Mama Noots Eco-Resort.
And don't worry, all of your adventures will be fueled by the food of our amazing cook. We start your day with a full breakfast of coffee/tea, fresh juice, a plate of fresh local fruits, eggs, fresh bread and a breakfast meat. You will have a variety of choices for lunch varying from a grilled chicken wrap to a scrumptious plate of nachos to a grilled fish burger and fries.

We are located four miles from the Southern Highway in the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, a short drive from the Garifuna beach towns of Dangriga and Hopkins Village in the southern part of Belize.
Mayflower Bocawina National Park
Established in 2001, the Park includes areas of Belize's FIRST protected area, the Silk Grass Forest Reserve. This park has some partially excavated Mayan ruins, a very small museum featuring information on the dig and local fauna and flora. There are several hiking trails. The trail to Antelope falls is initially flat, and passes a large ruin that is mostly jungle-covered. As it nears the creek it becomes very steep. There are ropes in place at a few spots. The trail is subject to extreme erosion, but easy to see.
The idea of making the area into a National Park first began with the Stann Creek Tour Guide Association. The District was desperate for destinations, besides the barrier reef and the dozens of small cayes off shore. The Association formed a steering committee, with members from other local stakeholder groups (Silk Grass Women's Group, the Maya Cultural Group) and other interested supporters.
Since National Park declaration, Mayflower Bocawina National Park has successfully completed projects funded by UNDP/GEF, Ford Motor Company Foundation, Jaguar Fund, PACT (Protected Areas Conservation Trust) and BNTF.
The Garifuna people
The Garinagu (singular Garifuna, pronounced 'gah-RIF-oo-na') are descendants of Carib, Arawak and West African people. The British colonial administration used the term Black Carib and Garinagu to distinguish them from Yellow and Red Carib, the Amerindian population that did not intermarry with Africans. The Amerindians who had not intermarried with Africans are still living in the Lesser Antilles; Dominica, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, etc.
Today the Garifuna live primarily in Central America. They live along the Caribbean Coast in Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras including the mainland, and on the island of Roatán. There are also diaspora communities of Garinagu in the United States, particularly in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and other major cities.
