A Unique Story

Purchased as only thick jungle and an abandoned farm, Table Rock has been hewn into the rainforest and has continued to develop since the first walking trail was chopped by machete in 2002. The resident American owners, Alan & Colleen, have worked to make Table Rock Jungle Lodge unique by preserving the natural surroundings, keeping the number of rooms limited, employing local villagers, and by replenishing one of Belize’s earliest natural resources—the Mahogany tree.
Alan, the owner of a private investigation firm, and Colleen, a former special education teacher and school administrator, honeymooned in Belize in 1998  with only a tent, a rented 4x4, an axe, and a map of questionable accuracy.  They fell in love with the country and its people, and continued coming back to vacation in Belize on a regular basis.  After several years of courtship with Belize, the couple decided to take the leap and stay on more permanently, starting first in a tent with no running water, no electricity, and only a rough idea of starting a citrus farm.  Five years and many ideas and learning experiences later, Table Rock Jungle Lodge first opened for business.

Community Connection

Table Rock Jungle Lodge contributes to a number of community based organizations and schools such as Cristo Rey Primary School and San Ignacio Humane Society. These are just two of countless organizations throughout the community that Table Rock supports. Additionally, Table Rock only hires local Belizean staff, from the two nearest villages when possible, and only sells locally made goods in their gift shops.

Environmental Engagement

Highlighted by a Mahogany Reforestation Project, Table Rock Jungle Lodge has made an effort to commit to conservation and sustainable practices on their land. Currently, nearly 1,000 mahogany trees have been replanted on the property. Alan Spring has his sights set on increasing that number in the years to come, allowing future generations of Belizeans to be able to admire and appreciate the country’s national tree once again.
The Spring family is mindful with their energy sources and consumption, using their farm for home-made meals at the lodge. Table Rock maintaints a 100% self-sustaining and off-grid property--using solar energy for electricity, as well as rain and river water for their water supply. The lodge is recognized by many notable awards, and they are proud to continue their efforts toward a more sustainable planet!

Culture

The Spring family encourages apprenticeships for local students, specifically focusing on traditional farming and building practices, as well as training in the tourism industry.
