Belize Retreat

Black Rock Lodge

February 24 - March 3, 2019

 

Pack your bags.... We're escaping endless New York City winter and heading to the jungle of San Ignacio, Belize! We (Co-Founders Randi Cerini & Erica Chen) at Om Tribe were lucky enough to check out one of Belize's beautiful islands in February 2018, and fell in love with the country. We can't wait to share our unbelizeably amazing experience with all of you and explore some new territory. We hope you'll join us on this adventure, filled with surprises, nature, bonding with new likeminded yogis, lots of juicy yoga sessions, amazing local food, breathtaking views from the time you wake up until the time your eyes shut, hiking, seeing wildlife, swimming in blue lagoons and rivers... and much more! 

TripAdvisor has endless rave reviews about Black Rock Lodge, our chosen venue. Twice a day, we'll practice in an open-air yoga palapa, overlooking the Black Rock Falls. Also on the property is an infinity swimming pool and mountain views of Black Rock Canyon... all of this set right on the Macal River. Black Rock grows many of their fruits and vegetables right on site! The rest of their produce comes from the local Farmer's Market in San Ignacio. Meat and fish are also purchased from local vendors. All breads are homemade everyday and juices are seasonal and fresh squeezed... yum!

The Deluxe cabins, with 2 queen beds, are spacious, comfortable, private, and built to take advantage of the fresh mountain breezes with ample windows and high pitched rooflines. Panoramic views of the Macal River and Canyon are visible from their exterior patios and hammocks. The interiors offer a hardwood writing desk, pleasant seating arrangement, and simple decoration provided by local artisans. The bathrooms include beautiful mahogany woodwork. 

River View Cabin

The River View Cabins, are comfortable and private, built with the same thoughtful design as the Deluxe cabins: ample windows and high pitched rooflines. These cabins have either one queen bed and one double bed or one king bed for couples or close friends. They are slightly smaller than the Deluxe cabins, have ensuite bathrooms, and are simply decorated with local artwork. With excellent views of the Canyon and Macal River from the exterior patio and hammock, these cabins are a delightful home-away-from-home at Black Rock.

Flight and Transfer Information:

Flights from NYC to Belize City are about $520 right now. There are no direct flights, but plenty of one-stop flights. We recommend booking your flight no less than 3 months prior for the best price. We will begin booking flights in early November- check in with us before you book! In our experience, prices always go way up if you enter that 3 month window. We will all meet at the Belize airport in a Central Location (TBD) and be picked up by our private guide and shuttle that will take us directly to Black Rock Lodge.
