This place is excellent. I only rated it down a little due to fact that I am a budget traveler and the meals are expensive, but very good. We statyed here one night specifically to do the Black Hole Drop. Had reserved a Jungle Hut but were upgraded to a Jungle Cabana. It was a very nice screened cabana with... More

We planned our trip to Belize to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, and decided to start off with a "Jungle Adventure". Although upon arrival, our reservation in one of the 2 bedroom treehouses had gone sideways, NOT the fault of Caves Branch staff in any way, but rather a travel agent's error, we were more than a little disappointed to...

I'm not going to lie, I sort of scoffed at the whole "for serious adventurers only". I've been to so many places that claim that. They are definitely not joking though! We had such an amazing time. The adventures were fantastic and they certainly wore us out. Fortunately the accommodations (we stayed in a bungalow) were perfect for a late... More

We wouldn't exactly call this "roughing it" but some people might. It gets dark at night, the meals are communal, and the high points are very physical excursions. Oh, and you have to sign a death waiver. If all of this doesn’t turn you off, keep reading. We've traveled a lot, and this was our most memorable vacation yet. Caves... More

We were very impressed with the tree house canopy. Even though it is very expensive, we had a lovely visit, minus the rain. I happened to get ill here but I don't think it was from the food as we all ate it, and it wasn't bad at all. They also made my daughter a birthday cake which was very... More

I can't believe it's taken a year to write a review. So many great memories. The lodge was fantastic and our tree house room was beautiful. We especially loved the outdoor bucket shower. While the lodge is a great place to relax the highlight for us was the adventures. The black hole Drop was a great hike with a fun... More

Highly recommended. Staff phenomenal, adventure trips a rush. Accomodations in tree house fabulous. Owner on site- literally- and a remarkable host. Made some friends at the communal tables and wonderful hearty and light fare.

This hotel was amazing. It was so beautiful with its large variety of flora, butterflies, insects and activities. It is definitely not for people who don't like the outdoors. Most of the rooms have only screens so that when you sleep you hear the noises of the jungle. The bungalow had an indoor and outdoor shower and two hammocks outside... More

We went to Caves Branch for our honeymoon last February 2011 (it wasn't an option to select) and I have been meaning to write about it every since. It was a trip of a lifetime. We did an all inclusive 5 day package, and because it was off season were upgraded to one of the treehouse suites. Even though the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, it was beyond amazing. I would recommend staying in September when it was their down season as we nearly had the whole place to ourselves. Staff was professional and the food was great at the resort. Food taken on treks were less desirable. Would recommend to anyone who wants an adventure trip.
