Lower Dover Belize Jungle Lodge is blessed with water on 3 sides. Big Barton Creek and Little Barton Creek form two boundaries and the Belize River marks the back of Lower Dover’s 100 acre jungle property. The constant water supply likely had a huge impact when the Maya built a large, recently identified ceremonial settlement on our property.

Little Barton Creek has a series of 7 tufa dam waterfalls located from where the lodge sits until the Belize River in the back. Bathing in the creek is an extremely refreshing break from hot Belizean days.  The creek is also a perfect spot for a wake up dip, when the water temperature is actually warmer than the air. It is also the preferred location to recover from a sever hangover, otherwise known locally as a “Gomer”.

      • which is true? I had a long discussion with someone about that. Gave up trying to convince her that they are each counting something slightly different. I already have Blogger stats and StatCounter. And I will see where the NBN stats fit between the first 2. So far I’m climbing briskly up as the first 10 days average out.
