Trails and waterfalls are a big draw, but who’s to say you can’t head there on a mountain bike? Whichever you choose, kickback after a day of exploring the property back at the stone-framed pool for a pre-summer glow, or book in at the Nikte’ Ha Spa for Hidden Valley’s signature 75-minute massage. Although every shower or bath inside your cottage feels like a spa experience in itself: standing tubs keep it cozy indoors, while the outdoor shower is lined entirely with local rocks from door entrance to (heated) cascade and native orchids bloom through in between.
But one of the most luxurious parts of your stay at Hidden Valley is the feeling that you have this green landscape and all of its sights, sounds, and even flavors all to yourself.
Straight out of a storybook, more than 5 major waterfall cascades and a handful of private splash pools means an instant immersion in this corner of the Cayo District’s top vacation offerings. A small, family-owned business, Hidden Valley ultimately means unwinding with posh accommodations inside its 12 cozy cottages aside an Eden of natural splendor, all within minutes of a pine and tropical forest. After all, it’s what you’ll come to Mountain Pine Ridge for—never letting modern luxury overshadow the country’s commitment to responsible tourism, nor outshine the natural beauty of the biome ahead of you. Each corner borderline prettier than the last.
