Maya Mountain Lodge offers one of the longest running and most well-established jungle lodges operating in Belize, having opened its doors 42 years ago on the outskirts in San Ignacio Town and the banks of the Macal River. This well-known, turnkey, operating business provides over four decades of brand awareness, a strong database of repeat guests and an easily accessible, yet remarkably private location that sits just minutes away from all the amenities and attractions the Cayo river valley has to offer. The lodge currently covers a roughly 10-acre landscaped, well-developed jungle setting complete with paved walkways, jungle trials, and manicured gardens. The entire property, however, boasts almost 58 acres of land with over 1,200 ft of riverfront and multiple hilltops providing vast opportunities for expansion and recreational activities.

Guests often describe the lodge a “a piece of Paradise” offering a delightful experience that captures the diverse mixture of Caribbean and Central American cultures that is Belize and gives you access to adventure activities, relaxation, and healthy eating. Throughout the lush grounds of the property there are hundreds of tropical plants and flowers as well as a wide variety of fruit trees including mango, papaya, coconut, soursop, and limes.

The lodge has 11 recently renovated guest accommodations consisting of four thatched roof cabañas, three individual units in the Parrot’s Perch apartment building, a two-bedroom apartment building with private porch and a detached three-bedroom family villa with private yard. Two of the four cabañas offer full kitchens while the other two provide a small fridge and coffee maker. All of the remaining accommodations offer fully equipped kitchens with four of them offering a separate living room. Every available guest unit has air conditioning along with hot and cold water. Common areas include a sizeable pool deck around a 24 ft diameter circular pool complete with covered seating/hammock lounge area, a lovely outdoor fire pit with built in seating and a BBQ area for guests. Also located on the property are a covered dining patio, a front desk, a separate spa building, storage and laundry facilities, offices, and manager/staff quarters.

Maya Mountain Lodge is on grid with electrical, water and high-speed internet connectivity. It has direct road frontage on the newly upgraded and paved Cristo Rey Road and sits just one mile off the George Price Highway, the main roadway that connect Eastern and Western Belize. This centralized location offers easy access to tourism destinations, downtown San Ignacio for shopping and other restaurants; its within 10 minutes of two hospitals, and less than 2 hours’ drive from the Belize International Airport.

The local operating company that owns and manages the property can be purchase along with all the facilities, equipment and accessories necessary for an easy transition. This is a great opportunity to purchase a turnkey, operating hospitality venture in one of Belize’s top tourist destinations. There are also additional opportunities to purchase adjacent riverfront land and add more frontage along the Macal River as well as individual or multiple homesites in a neighboring gated, residential community development.
