Ride on the riverbank the restaurant/lodge is located just a stone throw away from the city center. The menu is big and delicious. Unfortunately it closes at 7 o'clock and there are a lot of mosquitos there. Be aware!!

We've stayed here 3 different times when visiting Orange Walk. We didn't eat too many times here, but would typically only be here for breakfast. It's a great location on the river!

This restaurant is right on the New River. The setting is peaceful and quiet. Access is from a small road in the center of town...you will have to ask a local. The food was good and the beer was cold.

We ate here for dinner twice while in Orange Walk as we were staying in the cabins. The first night was excellent, everything was freshly prepared and delicious. The second night everything was good, but a little too salty. I think it was just a...More

We stayed in one of the cottages at the retreat. It was basic but clean and comfortable. The folks at the retreat also organised our day trip to Lamanai which went very well - picked up from in front of the hotel. We also ate...More
