The Farm Inn
 

Hidden within the rainforest in the foothills of the Maya Mountains is a nature reserve and resort that attracts those who prefer to be surrounded by trees than towers. Throughout the expansive property, visitors get to experience the best of Southern Belize presented in rivers, waterfalls, hills, and numerous trails to guide you through it all.

With quality facilities, The Farm Inn might be the ideal choice for guests looking to do some poolside lounging. Relaxing by the pool is just what the doctor ordered after a long day out 'n' about.

Positioned in San Antonio, The Farm Inn offers a warm welcome to travelers who are interested in basing their vacation in this hamlet or nearby. It is northwest of the center of Punta Gorda.

Accommodations

The Farm Inn

There are four en suite rooms in the inn overlooking a creek, each named after birds commonly seen at The Farm Inn, such as Mot-Mot, Kiskadee and Hummingbird. There are three rooms on the upper floor with shared access to the large sitting room and view veranda. The lower floor has one suite, Montezuma, with a private entrance and large private veranda with hammocks. This suite can be taken as a self-catering unit with a two burner counter top stove in the spacious kitchenette.

In the garden there are also two en suite rooms, Woodpecker and Toucan, both also featuring small kitchenettes for self-catering purposes. Each of these rooms has a lovely garden view and a private veranda with guest parking close by.

The Farm Inn has a total of just 6 units, so it's no mystery that we classify it as a very small property. Guests who prefer a quiet setting over distracting details will really enjoy the intimate atmosphere at this location.

Activities and Amenities

Activities and Recreation at The Farm Inn

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.

Because these details can sometimes change, it's a good idea to double check with the property if you don't want any surprises upon arrival. Visit this page to go to our complete discussion about the kinds of recreational opportunities offered at The Farm Inn.

Food

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.

Besides what is available on-site, those looking to find extra culinary diversity can also consider the area's other local eateries. It's helpful to check out the nearby restaurant options, though The Farm Inn provides dining on-site. To get more information about dining in the surrounding area, click here.
