Really nice people and a nice place to stay. Good food and a friendly host/chef. They connected us with the Belize Inland Tours folks who provided some nice outings. It's a quiet place with a pretty river nearby. The restaurant attracts locals and travelers.

Yamwits Lodge was a great find for our family. It was very reasonable and had all we needed, beds washroom with a shower and a great little restaurant that had good food. While we were there Miss Joy, the owner, was in process of getting quotes for air conditioning for the all rooms. Marvin at the restaurant was very accommodating...

I loved staying here! A friend and I stayed for 5 nights while on our stay in Belize. The mountain view was unbeleivable and it was so affordable. They only take cash, by the way. Marvin was so helpful and accomodating- he's also a fantastic cook! I had fresh orange juice every morning for breakfast while being able to see...

We didn't stay here, but stopped for a quick break when we were driving from Belize Airport to Placencia. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting where you can sit outside, appreciate the scenery, watch the traffic on Hummingbird Highway and enjoy the best fresh-squeezed orange juice right from their orchard. We didn't eat, but some folks we talked to...

Yamwits Lodge is located in the beautiful Maya Mountains in Central Belize and offers a simple stay with minimal accommodations for the traveler that does not require all the bells whistles of a luxury lodge. And that's just fine with me, because for the price point and what I needed, it was perfect and located in one of the most...

Yamwits is along the Hummingbird Highway in the highlands of Belize, set in a gorgeous citrus plantation. The room was fine, the place is very quiet and you really feel like you're out in the wilderness, especially at night, there's no artificial lights outside the room so when you turn your lights out it is very, very dark. Joy, the...

I can't speak to the lodge, but We stopped at the restaurant. The prices were great, and are reason enough to stop. Plus they had vegetarian options. Typical fare for the restaurants around here, and everything is made to order. Nice that they were they were open on a public holiday. Also, they had clean facilities
