The best zip lining in my life. From the moment we got there it was the most happy and friendliest place in my life. It is just stunning and very green .I felt like I was in a movie. The only hard thing about it was the road once you make your turn. Very bumpy road. Once you get there... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here and loved being in the middle of the jungle. The zip line was such fun and wonderful being up high with views from both the platforms and while zipping.

This review is for the restaurant only. Food was excellent! Best food we've had all vacation! Service was top notch as well! And since Trip Advisor is forcing me to add more words....it's good. Just go and try it out. They even had free cupcakes! Scored kid points with that one!

While on our honeymoon in Belize, we visited Bocawina for the waterfall repel and ziplining tour and it was definitely a day we'll never forget!
