Bocawina Rainforest Resort and Adventures

Island Expeditions is now the proud new partner (with Don and Stasha Troutman) of Bocawina Rainforest Resort and Adventures, formerly Mama Noots Eco-Resort! This unique year-round eco-resort is located in the heart of Mayflower Bocawina National Park, 7100 acres of lush jungle, refreshing waterfalls and unexcavated Mayan sites. Hidden away in the Southern Maya Mountains, the lodge runs on alternative energy and provides a true off-the-grid experience. 

Bocawina offers a wide range of adventure, cultural and wildlife tours on-site, in the park and around Belize. It is home to the longest zip-line course in the region and a rappel from the top of two spectacular waterfalls (Antelope Falls and Bocawina Falls). For birders, more than 230 species of birds have been identified in the park! 
A stay in the tropical jungles of Bocawina is the perfect complement to a paddling or snorkeling adventure, and can easily be added onto our Glover’s Reef, Paradise Islands and other reef trips. 


There are twelve separate guest accommodations within this secluded, jungle setting. Wake up to the sound of the rainforest and catch a glimpse of first light emerging through the mist. 

Choose a comfortable Standard Room in the Maya House, a Deluxe Suite with amazing rainforest and waterfall views, or a Thatched Cabana built according to Mayan tradition. All guestroom prices include free continental breakfast and WIFI. 


The Wild Fig Restaurant and Bar is the focal point and gathering place for the resort. The restaurant deals with local farmers, use Belize fruits grown on property, and prides itself on being a farm to table establishment. With an unobstructed view of the surrounding canopied hills and grounds, you can’t help but spend a good portion of your free time here. 

Activities and Adventures 

Choose between On-site adventures waiting for you just outside your room; Off-site tours to discover the inland beauty of Belize and Beach activities to explore the full potential of the Belize Barrier Reef.
