La Milpa

  • The La Milpa Lodge

    lies nestled deep in the forests of northwestern Belize.  It is located only three miles from the third largest archaeological site in Belize.  The La Milpa Archaeological Site is only one of at least sixty other archaeological sites found on the Rio Bravo.  Serving as a base for two long-term archaeological projects, La Milpa has evolved as the center of archaeological research on the Rio Bravo.  Guests visiting the La Milpa Lodge experience firsthand the rich history of the Maya Civilization.


Hill Bank

  • Our Hill Bank site

    was established in 1995 and one of two stations located on the Rio Bravo Conservation and Management Area (RBCMA).  But the history of this site goes way back to when the Hill Bank area was inhabited by the ancient Maya.  Along the length of the New River Lagoon you will find evidence of Mayan habitation in the form of house mounds, and just 12 miles away we find the second largest Mayan Monument in Belize, Lamanai.

    Today, Hill Bank is a working conservation field station, committed to managing the conservation of Belize’s natural heritage.
