Holiday Rental House
Rio Dulce is a magical place surrounded by nature. The house is located in a privileged place with a beautiful river view and very close to town, restaurants and convenience stores. To visit Rio Dulce is to get away from it all, there is no traffic, no advertisement and no problems, just you and nature. Sometimes you can hear or even see the howler monkeys from the balcony of your room or when you are swimming in the pool. The house has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a stunning pool, kitchen, living room and deck. In all of the rooms we have fans, the bathrooms have hot water and the kitchen is fully equipped. In the social area we offer WiFi to our guests. We also have a Smart TV (you may access to your Netflix account), board games, Inflatable Island to swim in the river and kayaks so you can...Rio Dulce is a magical place surrounded by nature.

The house has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a stunning pool, kitchen, living room and deck. In all of the rooms we have fans, the bathrooms have hot water and the kitchen is fully equipped. In the social area we offer WiFi to our guests. We also have a Smart TV (you may access to your Netflix account), board games, Inflatable Island to swim in the river and kayaks so you can entertain yourself all day long. The pool is located facing the river so you can enjoy the amazing view. In cold days we can turn on the heating of the pool. The pool has three different areas. The first area is for sunbathing or for babies to play. The second area is a shallow pool for kids and the third area is the deep zone (4’7” deep). Kids have to be always under adult supervision. The only way to access the house is by boat. You have to park your car in a private parking lot located under the Rio Dulce Bridge. Once the reservation is made, I will give you the exact location of the parking lot and the Waze location. The parking cost of one vehicle is included in the rent of the house. Additional cars have to pay Q25.00 per day directly at the parking lot. Once you have parked, we will pick you up in our boat and take you home. The boat trip (round trip) is included in the rent and lasts about 5 minutes. We are very flexible with the check-in and check-out time. Check in it’s at 1:00 pm, but if that day there aren´t any guests leaving the house you may check-in earlier. Check-outs are at 11:00 am, but if that day we are not expecting any guests you may leave at any time. Remember that in Rio Dulce, the only way to move from one place to another is by boat. We have 3 boats to move around in Rio Dulce and explore the area. The boat ride from the parking lot to the house is included in the rent (round trip). Our small boat is excellent for short trips to town most of all to buy groceries. The price per trip to town is Q25.00 (US$4.00). The two other larger boats are available for rent with an additional cost, you may use them for water ski or visiting places like Castillo de San Felipe, Livingston, 7 Altares or Playa Blanca. The boats are always piloted by the housekeeper (we provide lifeguards for adults and kids). The house keeper lives in a separate house on the same property. His wife will help you with cooking and cleaning. They are very helpful and trustworthy persons with more than 20 years at our service. They are the ones that will really make the difference in your stay. The tip is not included. We can provide food to our guests for an additional cost (This is optional, you may bring your own food and we will help you cook). As soon as you confirm your reservation I will send you the menu that we developed for our guests so you don’t have to worry about buying groceries, take them to Rio Dulce and cook them. We want to make it easier for you to just sit down and relax at Tom’s Paradise. More

My family and I were looking forward to a relaxing time in Rio Dulce and it was what we wanted. From the time we arrived to the last day . Neto the person in charge of the property , his wife and two children made us feel welcomed and were very helpful with anything we needed. A great place for a big family . Did a lot of cooking , Kayaking and swimming. Spent the afternoons relaxing by the dock. Neto took us to town by boat whenever we needed to buy more supplies. There is plenty of fresh fish , crabs and shrimp in town and a few small supermarkets. Also fresh corn tortillas. Alejandro the owner was also very helpful with anything we needed.

About the neighbourhood
The house is extremely well located, with a beautiful view at sunset and very ventilated, especially in the afternoon. It located a few minutes from the bridge and Rio Dulce Airport. You may find many restaurants and hotels nearby that you may visit. There is also a supermarket and other stores where you may buy food, groceries and anything you need. Remember that the only way to go to all these places is by boat and Neto can take you there. It is important to remember that Rio Dulce is a rainforest, the weather is unpredictable and we cannot control that. Normally there are sunny and hot days, however, it can rain without notice and it can be a little cold (17° C). For this reason we recommend always to carry a light sweater. Rio Dulce is
Getting around
We have 2 boats for rent. One is a 17.5 feet long and the other is a 25 feet long boat. If there’s good weather, you may go to “El Golfete”, Izabal Lake, Livingston, 7 altares, Playa Blanca, etc. All of our boats will always be driven by Neto.
