14 December 2011

Seattle, WA –  The Kusini Collection announces today that The Lodge at Big Falls, located in the Toledo District of Belize, has appointed the Kusini Collection as their North American sales and marketing representative.

“Walk through off-the-beaten path Maya ruins, explore the cave system where the Crystal Skull was discovered, visit an organic cacao plantation, dance to Garifuna music…there aren’t many places in the world that offer such unique experiences,” said Lyndsay Harshman, principal at the Kusini Collection. “Rob, Marta and the team at The Lodge at Big Falls take pride in offering the highest levels of service, comfortable lodging and experiences that travelers won’t soon forget.”

The Lodge at Big Falls, located in Belize's southern Toledo District, is situated on a bend in the Rio Grande River with almost a mile of river frontage and views of the Maya Mountains. The family-run lodge offers eight thatched cottage-style cabanas. Each cabana has a queen size bed and either an extra single bed or full size bunks. Two cabanas have air conditioning and kitchenettes for travelers staying a bit longer. The Lodge's restaurant serves gourmet food and pours local specialties, beer wine and cocktails in its bar. Tour packages to The Lodge include a mix of natural history (birds, butterflies and animals), adventure (zip-lining, kayaking, snorkeling, caving and hiking) and cultural encounters with the locals (musicians, dancers, traditional crafts people, cacao farmers). The Lodge has a tour operating license and arranges complete Belize itineraries for North American travel agents and tour outfitters. The Lodge is perfect as a family vacation and the ideal base in the heart of Toledo for a true Belizean adventure!

Big Falls lies at the end of the Southern Highway 18 miles inland from Punta Gorda and provides easy access to all sites of interest within Toledo (journey times are usually less than one hour), as well as attractions further north such as the Scarlet Macaw breeding area at Red Bank and the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve. There is also easy access to the cayes and Payne's Creek in the Port Honduras Marine Reserve 20 miles north of Punta Gorda. The Guatemalan towns of Livingston and Puerto Barrios are just 70 minutes ride by skiff across the Bay of Honduras.

The Kusini Collection is a US-based travel marketing firm that represents an exclusive group of complementary, owner-operated camps, lodges and ground handlers in Africa and Latin America. The Kusini Collection is entirely focused on connecting highly-qualified, knowledgeable North American agents and outfitters with elite operating partners overseas.
