Black Orchid Resort in Burrell Boom, Belize

The Black Orchid Resort is located on the bank of the Belize Old River near the village Burrell Boom. This jungle resort is just 30 minutes driving from Belize City and only 15 minutes drive from the Belize International Airport.

The Belizean owned resort is being promoted as the ideal location for as well access to the jungle, the inland attractions and the Caribbean Sea without being shuffled around from resort to resort. Keep in mind that this resort is located in the Belize District, not really in the neighborhood of the most jungle attractions in the Cayo District (at least an hour driving), with exception of the Mayan ruins of Altun Ha and Lamanai, and not next to the Caribbean Sea. Also a visit to one of the islands or the Belize Barrier Reef is probably taking a drive (in combination with a boat trip) of 1.5 to 2 hours. The only way to visit the attractions in Belize is by own transportation or by taking the tours of the hotel, which are according to some people overpriced (probably due to transportation costs). 
 
Amenities of the resort include the Black Orchid restaurant with local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and diner, a fresh water pool with a poolside bar, a gift shop and a screened porch overlooking the Belize Old River. Kayaks, canoes and paddle boats are available for the guests next to the river.


Tours which are offered by the resort are to Altun Ha, Crystal Cave, the Belize Zoo, Ambergris Caye, Belize Barrier Reef, Caye Caulker, Lamanai, Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, Community Baboon Sanctuary Visitor Center and Museum and St Herman's Blue Hole National Park
