“Carefree Casitas Calinas”

Just returned from a wonderful visit to Belize, where we had the good fortune to book the cabins at Casitas Calinas outside of Belmopan in the Cayo district.
The group included my wife and I in one cabin (with our 5 year old grandson), and our daughter, son-in-law and 17 month old granddaughter in the other cabin.
We stayed for 6 nights and had a fantastic time, using the Casitas as a base to visit the market in Belmopan, Belize Zoo, Xuanantunich Mayan ruins, San Ignacio, Blue Hole National Park, St. Helena’s Cave, and even an overnight trip to Guatemala to see the Tikal site.
The cabins were clean and comfortable, with all the needed amenities, including a coffeemaker, compact fridge, full stove, and an assortment of pots/pans/utensils. Everything was in working order, and the A/C unit was more than adequate for the size of the cabin. Water was good (and plentiful), and the grounds were splendid, with a vast assortment of tropical plants and flowers, as well as colorful birds, lizards, basilisks and the occasional howler monkey. There are numerous paths and trails that can be walked on the property, and the river that runs through it was great for a quick dip or a leisurely tube ride to cool down. The small extra fee for the ‘relax’ package includes access to the sporting equipment, A/C, and ‘starter’ groceries, which turned out to be enough for a dinner, a couple of breakfasts, several pieces of fruit, and virtually all our coffee/tea needs (and even a couple of Belikins!). You will even get 2 loads of laundry done during your stay as part of the package.
One of the most interesting parts of the stay was the power system that makes it all possible. Since Belize has a ‘less than universal’ power grid, the entire Casitas Calinas grounds is run off of solar power with a generator backup. This proved to be sufficient for all our needs, especially given that we only ran the A/C for a couple of hours at bedtime to cool off the cabin while we slept. Once cooled, the overhead fans were more than sufficient to keep the rooms comfortable overnight. The units were sized to cool the space efficiently and quickly, so there was no need to run them all day long while we were otherwise occupied. The technology is very interesting, and Silvan is more than happy to share his knowledge and tour the power plant with you if you are so inclined (WE definitely were!)
Come to relax in the abundant hammocks, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, and drift down the river. Enjoy fresh eggs from the free-range chickens in the morning and various fruits from plants located outside your door when in season. Casitas Calinas is a perfect spot to stay put or use as a base to visit Belize further. We will definitely return if we ever get back that way…
