EcoTourism Belize renovates its bunkhouse, dining room and camping grounds to offer a comfortable and safer stay.

The bunkhouse can host students, families and friends traveling in groups but it is also available to individuals looking for a safe and comfortable place to stay. It has eight bunk beds and four single beds with a layout recognizing proper social distancing measures, clean towels, sanitizers and toiletries. Our bunkhouse now has all COVID-19 measures with an improved spacious resting area and additional private room and a separate quarantine room. 

The quarantine room is fully equipped with necessary COVID-19 measures including a health and safety kit which has face mask and shield, gloves, hand sanitizers and non-contact thermometer. The new private rooms have two single beds, each bed has a fan and night lamps, the room also provides a table, chair and dresser.

The resting area was expanded with a new spacious insect screen veranda, proper sanitization stations, and educational signage. After an adventurous day, guests can rest on the Adirondack chairs, read a book and the natural scenery can be enjoyed. Besides the bunkhouse, there are two cold water showers and four composting toilets with a great view into the jungle. Two new flush toilets were built besides the dining room. All toilets provide toiletries, mirrors and hand washing basins.

The dining area provides guests with a spacious palapa style room for meals. The room also provides space for workshops or lectures for student group discussions or any other group activities. The dining area provides tables, chairs, proper sanitization stations, and educational signage. We also create this space for venue rentals for workshop needs.
