If Adam and Eve had had the time to build a hotel in Eden, this is what it would look like. Set in a glorious, isolated mountain setting of over 2,833 hectares (7,000 acres) of private land, the Hidden Valley Inn offers up 12 roomy, individual bungalows to guests. Each has unique touches, like plush arm chairs, working fireplaces, verandas with hammocks and outdoor showers built in rock so that they resemble waterfalls. Speaking of those, this is the closest hotel to the Hidden Valley, or Thousand Foot Falls, the tallest waterfall in Belize, a somewhat strenuous 2-hour hike from the hotel. There are also several other, much more easily accessible, jungle waterfalls and swimming holes right on the property (you'll find them along the inn's 90-mile network of trails). it’s the only place in Belize where the endangered orange-breasted falcon can reliably be spotted. The hotel hosts the conservation team for this bird, as well as jaguar researchers, as they are deeply invested in protecting their surrounding wilderness and its animals. And you don't have to walk the trails as the hotel provides mountain bikes free of charge. The coffee you're served at breakfast is grown right here, as are many of the fruits and vegetables. Also on site: an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi are surrounded by a beautiful slate deck.
