we spent a week here back in the summer of 2013 for our honeymoon and had an amazing time! we did an adventure every single day, paying for an additional one instead of sitting around in the resort for the day. we had previously spent a week at the beach so didn't feel the need to sit around any more....

Ian Anderson has really got something pretty amazing here. My girlfriend and I lucked out in our booking with Lisa, unfortunately, we didn't have quite as good a fortune once we arrived. We had only reserved for one night, really just to check out the grounds and experience the "resort" offerings on our last day in Belize for possible return... More

My husband and I were in Beleze the first week of March. The agency did such a great job with our travel agenda, I find it hard to put in words what could possibly show the top rating of this company. We were so impressed with them that I am already planning my trip for next year. This year we... More

Just keeps getting better! This was our fourth time to Cave's Branch and it is just as beautiful as I remember it! Chef Jay, Veronica and Anothny made us feel so special and went over and above to make our trip great. Chef Jay provided two of the recipes for our favorite snacks and salad dressing and we really appreciated... More

My wife and I stayed at Ian Anderson's Caves Branch for 5 days last week. We were very impressed with the quality of our stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food and accommodations were excellent. We enjoyed the Tekal trip, the repelling tour and the waterfall cave tour. Every night we slept like logs except for waking... More

Thrilled to know that you had a blast- it goes without saying that we are so happy to serve our guests and make them feel welcomed and cared for….and that you had the chance to hear the monkeys if not see them. They are the unseen hosts at the lodge and do their part in welcoming our guests!! More

We have just returned from our most memorable holiday adventure ever! For 2 seniors who have travelled extensively this says a lot about the Cavesbranch experience. Christian met us at Belize City airport and gave us a good background on Belize on the journey in. Robert greeted us and showed us the fascinating property. Our jungle bungalow featured an awesome...

Firstly, if I could give Caves Brach 6 stars, I would. This place is absolutely incredible. Not only is Caves Branch GORGEOUS, but the staff and other visitors were so welcoming and friendly. Our riverview treehouse was beautiful and clean. Nothing beats an outdoor shower in the jungle! On our last night, because there weren't too many guests and the... More

One of the best vacations we ever took. If you love the outdoors and adventure this is a MUST. We stayed in a jungle lodge which was nice but one of the staff gave us the keys to a treehouse one afternoon that no one was staying in and that was magnificent. THe best part about Caves Branch is the... More
