    I love everything about Gaia! I honestly can’t stop recommending it to friends. The extremely friendly service, the location with the waterfalls, the beautiful sunset views for happy hour, and the extra comfy and beautifully designed rooms made it one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. All of the on-site activities and amenities like the night hikes and natural waterfall pools made it feel all so unique and special.

    Beautiful property on the waterfall. Loved that it was secluded and you were able to disconnect and unplug. Coco the puppy was an added treat. So happy and fun to go on hikes with.

    This place is otherworldly. From the moment you arrive it is an experience unlike anything I could have imagined. The grounds are beautiful, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable and unique. The food…delicious! Gaia should not be missed!

    This property was amazing from the moment they picked us up from the airport. Our driver was so knowledgeable and friendly. We were welcomed with a signature drink and smile as soon as we walked into the lobby. The staff used our names and really got to know us. The resort itself was beautify landscaped and we could not have asked for a nicer room. The food was amazing for all of our meals as well as the signature cocktails. They did a great job of hosting us and booking our tours. We did the Mayan Ruins and also the Horseback riding and loved both. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to see more of Belize than just the beaches. Rudy our Driver/Guide, Freddy our Server and Chris at the front desk were 10 out of 10.

    Amazing Anniversary Trip

    Gaia Riverlodge was amazing! We spent our 35th anniversary there and couldn't have chosen a more romantic and adventurous location. We stayed in the Cascade cabana overlooking the falls and took advantage of several excursions (including Caracol/Rio Frio Cave and Barton Creek/zip-lining). Big Rock Falls are a short mountain bike ride away and should not be missed (we went twice). Guides are well trained and very knowledgeable. The locally-sourced food was also really good, but we would have liked to see a few more Mayan/Belizean recipes on the menu. Linens were always clean and fresh and the bedding was incredibly comfortable. The service and staff were 5-star. Can't say enough about the staff! Very attentive to all needs, professional, and genuinely friendly. In 5 days, we made memories for a lifetime. If you're looking for uncrowded, out-of-the-ordinary trip to unplug and reconnect, this is it! Thank you Gaia!
