Toledo District has much to offer - diverse habitats, large nature reserves, ancient Mayan ruins, an extensive cave system, picturesque Mayan and Garifuna villages, rivers, waterfalls and proximity to the less explored cayes of the Port Honduras Marine Reserve.
As a registered tour operator, we will be happy to help you plan excursions. We are close to the well -known ruins of Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit, and the lesser known Uxbenka ruin is withing walking distance (2 miles) from the property.
Adventurous travelers will enjoy exploring the Blue Creek cave system, or zip-lining, river tubing and white water kayaking. Diving, fishing and snorkeling trips can also be arranged. Fly fishermen know Punta Gorda as the Permit capital of the world, and as Punta Gorda is only about 21 miles away from The Farm Inn you can start your day with a filling farm breakfast and then head off to enjoy the salt water activity of your choice, ending your perfect day with a sundowner in the jungle - the best of both worlds!
On-site trails and a raised bird-watching palapa offer rich rewards to birders as the diverse habitats on the grounds of The Farm Inn along with a large variety of fruit trees, ensure regular sightings of a vast number of different species.
For visitors who enjoy cultural experiences The Farm Inn can arrange home visits to a Mayan home to learn about the Mayan lifestyle and how some of the intricate crafts are made, or a trip to Punta Gorda to experience a Garifuna drumming lesson. A walk through the nearby Mayan village of San Antonio will give visitors the opportunity to witness village life and to see the beautiful stone Roman Catholic church with its stained glass windows. On the way visitors can stop at the beautiful San Antonio waterfall and swim in the inviting big pool below the fall.
On site we offer a traditional Mayan chocolate making demonstration along with a guided walk of the cacao plantation where the process of growing, harvesting, fermenting and drying is explained. The guided walk includes a talk on some of the many medicinal plants growing in the jungle.
Bicycles are available for an energetic ride further west to the village of Santa Cruz and the Rio Blanco Nature reserve just beyond that. Here there is another spectacular waterfall with big swimming hole and trails to explore with some more great bird-watching opportunities.
