Checo Hill is our home, guesthouse and farm in the hills of Cayo District near to the Mountain Pine Ridge. We are located on the outskirts of the village of Seven Miles / El Progresso, a small farming community.
We offer bed and breakfast accommodation, a self-catering kitchen, meals on request and a variety of activities in the surrounding area and wider Cayo District.
Winter's here, and with it cooler temperatures and a change in the bird life. This hooded warbler has been hanging around the farm recently - turning up at our back door reliably!
The calliandras are also flowering impressively at the moment, and bringing in more birds... We're seeing a lot of hummingbirds around these. Great fun to watch over a morning coffee!
Here's a photo from a recent wander up Checo Hill. We're getting beautiful slanty golden winter sunlight at the moment.
We've just finished improving the trail to the summit, too - widening it a little through the forest. And we've recleared a small area on the very top of the hill to give better views of the area. We're planning to put up a small viewing platform soon... So many things to do!
A quick photo from the farm - turmeric and ginger growing nicely up by our house. Mmm! We're looking to expand production of this significantly in the future...
There have been some spectacular thunderstorms in the past few weeks: here's some lightning from last night. It was far away enough that we couldn't hear it, but it was rather impressive to watch.
