Pook’s Hill Ltd., P.O. Box 14, Belmopan, Belize, Central America
We are situated five and half miles south of the village of Teakettle, which is on the Western Highway between Belmopan and San Ignacio.
Follow the Western Highway to mile 52 1/2 (Teakettle Village). Turn south at the POOK’S HILL sign (There is also a big brown sign for Actun Tunichil Mukanal here – ATM Cave). The road will zig zag through the village: it will curve right and then give you an option to carry on straight or go left – GO LEFT following the sign. Continue south on the main dirt road. After 4 miles, there will be another small POOK’S HILL sign on the right. Take this track for another 1 ½ miles. The last 1 mile will be in the forest. If you miss the last turning you will find yourselves at a bridge crossing the river. Turn around. The track is at the top of the hill. It takes about ½ hour to get from the highway to the lodge.
If you are coming during the rainy season, 4 wheel drive vehicles are recommended. Please let us know when to expect you and call ahead if you have not made a reservation.
