Guest House & Cottage Accommodations

Stay with us and take advantage of a one of a kind learning opportunity taught in nature’s own classroom. Built with students in mind, BBG’s Guest House is located within the botanic garden grounds. These comfortable budget-priced accommodations are ideal for groups.

Individuals can enjoy a stay in one of our 2 private Garden Cottages adjacent to Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge [formerly duPlooy’s Jungle Lodge].

Combining the Guest House with a Garden Cottage rental is a good option for student-groups and their group leaders.


Guest House

The Gardens Guest House with, 8 bedrooms, 4 baths and 16 single beds can comfortably accommodate up to 16 persons. The Guest House is comprised of two separate houses, each containing two – 2 bedroom 1 bath units [max 4 persons per shared bath]. The 2 individual buildings have their own separate porch and veranda and are connected by a 12 ft. wide deck.


US $75 per night / per person; Includes 3 home-cooked meals daily starting with dinner on arrival day and ending with breakfast on day of departure; 9% hotel tax is included.

From the Maya house, follow the River Walk trail down to the Macal river for the best beach and swimming around.

Students have the option of helping to gather assorted food-fare from the Garden and assisting in meal preparations at the Visitors Center. Its a fun way to taste new foods, while learning about and experiencing traditional Belizean dishes.


Garden Cottages

Both Garden Cottages come with king-sized bed, kitchenette, private bath and deck with table & chairs and hammock. Your private porch is a great spot for bird watching, relaxing and just taking in and enjoying your tropical surroundings. They’re ideally located just 100 meters outside the Garden entrance.
