Where the Colonial History of Belize is Revealed in a Natural Setting

Warrie Head, Cayo, Belize
At Warrie Head Lodge the everyday history of colonial Belize will be revealed. A former logging camp nestled in the rolling foothills of the Maya Mountains, Warrie Head Ranch and Lodge is the only place in the country which provides a glimpse into Belize's colonial past in an idyllic natural setting.

Imagine. The days of pirates, buccaneers, bloodshed and larceny are over. By the 1700s the Baymen had established a small society in Belize, and interest had turned from the logwood once harvested for its dyes, to the hardwoods of the virgin forests. Warrie Head Lodge, Cayo, Belize

As news of riches spread logging camps or "banks" such as Warrie Head sprang up along the river, and by 1862 when British Honduras was officially recognised as a British Crown Colony, mahogany became the crux of the Country's early colonial future. Warrie Head Lodge, Cayo, Belize

The mahogany no longer reigns in the forest, yet it remains the common thread of Warrie Head Lodge, reflected in the beauty and warmth of the authentic antique furniture collected from Belizean homes. Warrie Head Lodge, Cayo, Belize

Each of the 10 cozy guestrooms is uniquely furnished and you may get to experience the hidden charms of the old colonial chamber pot known as the 'thunderbox'!. Warrie Head Lodge, Cayo, Belize

The grounds by the Buccanneer Bar are also dotted with historic intrigue such as the recently established exhibits of the working Sugar Mill, and Fowler Steam Engine used for transporting mahogany in the logging days all have their own story to tell, or you may wish to browse the library inside the main house for tales of our history and culture.

Warrie Head Ranch and Lodge is a naturalist's paradise. Set in 639 acres in the foothills of the Maya mountains, the grounds are a mix of carefully manicured lawns, botanical gardens with an exotic array of shrubs, trees and tropical plants, and a working ranch of citrus, vegetables, and herbs.

Across Warrie Head Creek and the Belize River, 500 acres have been left as managed wilderness to act as a buffer zone and wildlife habitat, attracting a vast array of wildlife to the grounds, many of them endangered. Over 200 species of birds have been recorded at Warrie Head and viewing opportunities are maximized due to the open areas of lawn intermingled with shrubs bearing the bird's favourite wild berries.
