Located in the heart of Belize on the outskirts of Burrell Boom Village, the Black Orchid Resort is an oasis of modern convenience in an exotic tropical rainforest setting. Just 15 minutes away from the Philip Goldson International Airport in Belize City, the Black Orchid Resort is worlds away with 16 comfortable rooms, seven luxury suites, and two well-appointed villas. There is a gourmet restaurant on site as well as a bar, gift shop, swimming pool, and a conference center.
Designed to be eco-friendly, the resort is elegantly integrated with a rainforest setting on the banks of the pristine Belize River. Every room comes with powerful air-conditioning, a private bathroom, and cable TV. Guests have the option of dining by the pool or on the patio.
Garden View Rooms offer two comfortable beds (one queen-size and one double) with quality linens, air conditioner, ceiling fan, TV, chairs, fully appointed private bathroom with hot and cold water, shower, soaps, body lotion, shampoo, and hydrating conditioner.
The rooms are nicely appointed to make your stay at Black Orchid resort comfortable and relaxing, enjoyable, and hassle-free. Daily maid service makes sure your room is always ready for you. Free high-speed Wi-Fi is available all the time.
This full day ride begins with an introduction to your horse and fitting to your saddle. Your ride will take you into the Mountain Pine Ridge reserve, where you will see an entire variety of rainforest flora and fauna with a possible howler monkey sighting. You will be at the falls for a couple of hours where you will enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch and swimming.
Your return ride will take you on a different trail to increase your exposure to the vibrantly rich tropical jungle. Some areas of the trail are better suited for walking, and others perfect for an exhilarating canter through the woods.
You will ride to the underground river cave, passing through open farmlands and viewing primitive farming techniques of indigenous people, learning much about their culture. You will travel into a beautiful river valley lost in time, resplendent with huge mango, avocado, and citrus trees where you board small canoes and venture about a mile into the cave to view its exquisite beauty. A spotlight will be provided but you are invited to bring along your own headlights or flashlights.
Belize, Latin America's gateway to the Caribbean, is located on the East Coast of northern Central America. Belize borders Mexico on the north, Guatemala on the west and south, and the Caribbean Sea on the east.
Belize is a small country of 8,867 square miles that sits on the northeastern coast of Central America. The friendly neighbor of Mexico and Guatemala, Belize shares ancient Mayan past and common ethnic backgrounds with Central America.
But it is the salty air drifting over from the Caribbean Sea that has infected the country with a colorful Caribbean flamboyance that can be seen through its distinct Colonial/Caribbean-style architecture, coconut-based dishes, white sandy beaches, laid-back ambiance, and its English and Creole dialects. Belize is, in fact, the only Central American country with English as a first language.
With approximately 270,000 people living peacefully in a secure political environment, enriched in diverse cultures, Belize is a premier ecotourism destination. Though small, Belize boasts the largest Barrier Reef in the Western Hemisphere, the famous ‘Blue Hole, three of the four pristine atolls in the Atlantic, over 200 sand islands, the only Jaguar Preserve in the world and over 500 species of exotic birds.
If that's not enough, Belize is home to numerous remains of ancient Mayan cities, some still undiscovered under the jungle's lush vegetation, majestic Maya Mountains that soar 3000 feet into the clouds, some of the tallest mangrove trees in the region, complex cave systems, the only pine forest (Mountain Pine Ridge) in all of Central America, and a unique and colorful cultural mix.
Burrell Boom is a tranquil riverside community located approximately sixteen miles north of the Belize international airport. It epitomizes rural Belize where residents maintain a peaceful coexistence with the vastly unspoiled natural environment. Flora and fauna abound.
Multi-colored species of tropical birds including the yellow-headed parrot, redheaded woodpecker, yellow-tailed oriole, several types of hummingbirds and herons inhabit the orchards, marshlands, and riverbanks of the countryside. Vibrant yellow cashews, rich custard apples, deep purple and red mangos, berries of various shapes and color, and a surplus of tropical plants complete the setting while providing the key ingredients for an array of local dishes and beverages.
The location of Black Orchid Resort gives guests a distinct advantage while visiting Belize. Close to Belize City with nearby access to Belize islands and cays, the resort can serve as your base to experience the most impressive and interesting places to visit and things to do in Belize. The international airport is just a 15-minute ride to the front door.
It is the perfect base in Belize to launch your daily adventure. Whether it’s diving, sunbathing, snorkeling, hiking a rainforest, bird watching, visiting Maya sites or just enjoying the sights and sounds of tropical paradise, Black Orchid lets you do it all conveniently and without long hauls in tourist vans.
During your stay, lunch during the riding days is included in the price. The Black Orchid Restaurant can also serve you delicious healthy meals from a full menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Managed by the owner, Mrs. Thompson, every meal served at Black Orchid is served with care and pride. They source local produce and seafood and strive to deliver food that guests will love.
The Black Orchid Restaurant can accommodate special diets and food preferences (especially for children) upon request. The chefs and service staff look forward to serving you a delicious meal. Perhaps even good enough for you to post a picture on Facebook!
Cocktails are an important part of vacation for many people and they take their bar service seriously. Two fully-stocked bars feature local liquors as well as virtually every popular brand of spirits. They offer beer, a nice wine list, and cocktail specials that will complete your tropical paradise experience.
You’ll experience various indigenous wildlife - vividly colored birds and butterflies, iguanas, and other lizards blending with the flora and fauna. Howler monkeys frequent the resort too. Their roar is really impressive!
The tranquil grounds will allow you to feel as if you are a part of nature. Enjoy the quiet murmur of the river, the songs of the exotic birds, and the rumbling of the howler monkeys. Stroll the resort grounds with sunlight kissing your face, then sooth the mind and body in the cool fresh waters of the pool. Many guests enjoy relaxing while nature puts on a show with sights and sounds that refresh your spirit and touch your soul.
Belize is a treasure trove of nature and history! Along the entire coastline runs brilliant coral reef teeming with colorful underwater life, it’s a natural aquarium!
You’ll find in Belize picturesque waterfalls, winding jungle rivers, and monumental Mayan temples and magnificent ceremonial caves that will all talk to your spirit, while the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea soothe your soul and excite your imagination.
