Checo Hill is our home, guesthouse and farm in the hills of Cayo District near to the Mountain Pine Ridge. We are located on the outskirts of the village of Seven Miles / El Progresso, a small farming community.
We offer bed and breakfast accommodation, a self-catering kitchen, meals on request and a variety of activities in the surrounding area and wider Cayo District.
It's not just about building at Checo Hill farm: we try to make sure we have some time set aside for working on the farm.
We used to spend a fair amount of time farming (when we lived in north east Belize) - it's something we're keen to get back to when the construction work winds down!
Here are some of the things we've been planting... starting with tropical cedar, a valuable hardwood.
Pineapples! We've planted loads of these - this one is flowering.
And an overview of part of the farm. Here you can see cassava in the foreground, as well as some young plantains and our own house in the background.
