Casa del Caballo Blanco
Another opportunity for voluntourism but on a less luxurious scale that the Flor de Cabrera is the more eco-centered Casa del Caballo Blanco in Belize. This resort consists of six cabanas that on a 23-acre former ranch that is now home to the not-for-profit Casa Avian Support Alliance, which seeks to support and study the biodiversity of Belize as it relates to the bird population. The resort includes a hacienda-style main house and then the six thatch-roof cabanas which have en-suite bathrooms and refrigerators. Meals, which focus on fresh produce, Mayan and tropical flavors, are served in a thatch-roofed dining room. The guests are invited to participate in the avian program including helping with maintenance and feeding but there are also other activities available such as horseback riding and visiting nearby archaeological and World Heritage sights. A percentage of the cabana rental goes back to the Casa Avian facility. The prices are reasonable starting at $95 with additional fees for food.
