Welcome to Back-a-Bush guesthouse

Overview of Back-a-Bush, farm and guesthouse,palapa, San Miguel Toledo Belize In Toledo, Belize there are many traditional Mayan villages. I am Elsbeth, originally from the Netherlands, and I live with my partner Rod, from Canada, in one of those villages. We have traveled extensively and found this area very appealing. But in Toledo there are very few places to stay for budget travelers and so we made the place that we would have loved to stay at. Our guesthouse is located on our 11 acre organic farm, in the Kekā€™chi Maya village of San Miguel on the Rio Grande. The farm, the village, the river and the jungle are within walking distance.
