Among other things, the inn is a working cacao farm of over 3000 cacoa trees, that houses a collection of animals that roam freely on the property. Guests are welcome to tour the farm, and children especially love interacting with the animals.
The 52 acre property was originally a secondary jungle and care has been taken to keep as much of the jungle growth undisturbed as possible to provide refuge for a large variety of bird species and quite a few animal species as well.
Being members of the Toledo Cacao Growers Association, they are committed to organic farming. They have quite a variety of medicinal plants growing around the property. They arrange traditional chocolate making demonstrations on site as well as guided walks where the various trees and their properties are discussed, along with a guided walk through the cacao fields.
They are also members o=f the Belize Audubon Society and welcome bird watchers, accommodating the very early risers with early morning coffee before they set off on walks along their easy trails. A 14 foot bird watching tower provides great views of the canopy birds in the early morning and late afternoon.
Although there is a good new modern road which runs past the property, they are not on the electrical grid and so power is mainly supplied by solar panels, augmented by a generator which is run for short periods to allow for hot water for showering at night and some lights around the property mainly for guest comfort. They also have a swimming pool which runs off solar power.

The on-site restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily with a nice blend of African and Belizean fare, just be aware the reservations are required for dinner. The restaurant is mainly for guests and breakfast is included in the price. Light lunches are available, and dinners are normally cooked outdoors over an open fire. They use fresh healthy ingredients and their prices are reasonable. They have a small kitchen garden to supply the restaurant and all produce is organic. Their layer hens are free range and once they become spent, are humanely retired to live out the rest of their lives doing what chickens love to do most: scratch in the dirt.
In addition to dining options on-site, vacationers looking for extra culinary variety might also want to think about the region's other nearby restaurants.
