Our goal here at Sleeping Giant is twofold: treat our guests to an unforgettable experience here in the Mayan heartland, and wrap social initiatives into our business model.

We seek to empower our community in a number of ways. In addition to employing Belizeans, offering the best training to local youths who want to work in the hospitality industry, and supporting local agriculture, we give our guests the opportunity to make an impact themselves.

Everyone loves bringing smiles to those around them, which is why we participate in

Our chosen cause

Marla's House of Hope

Their goal is to provide physical, psychological and spiritual care to neglected and abused children. This children’s home houses little ones who have been removed from their homes, ranging in age from birth to 17 years. Many of the children have experienced such severe degrees of abuse that they face difficulty in adjusting to a “normal” home life.

We want to make that transition just a little bit easier for them, in whatever way we can, and we invite you to help us. By stashing just a few much-needed items in your suitcase, you can make a lasting impact and experience the unique joy of giving.


We thank you for your support of our communities, and we can’t wait to see you here!
