Sheila prepared a lovely evening meal for our arrival even with short notice. The breakfasts were delicious. Our lodge room was very comfortable with plenty of room and good lighting. Punta Gorda Town is an easy 15 minute drive from Chaab'il B'e for lunch and dinner. The highlight of our stay was the birding around the lodge. The habitat is...

Immediately after booking, Sheila was in touch with us to assist in every way, arranging flat fishing, tour guiding and local transportation and recommending dining places. Room was immaculate. We only managed to eat breakfasts there, but Sheila is a world class omelette maker!!

Sheila and Rusty have created a “Garden of Eden” with memorizing exotic plants and birds of all colors at your door. A really magical jungle experience, especially the hiking trails and swimming hole with a natural rock floor that feels like poured concrete! The accommodations were top notch! A clean comfortable casita surrounded by jungle sounds, soft bed with mosquito...
