Ron and Al have struck the right balance between comfort/luxury and authentic/natural. They have beautifully landscaped the areas immediately surrounding the lodges and dining room but thankfully they have left the rest to nature! The rooms are clean and comfortable and the showers are hot. The meals are excellent and Rubin makes a great caipirinha! Beyond the minimal, beautifully constructed... More

Myself and my wife stayed in the Jungle Lodge as part of our honeymoon for 3 nights. It was an incredible part of our trip to Central America. Ron and Al were amazing hosts. We were made extra welcome as they assured us we were their first ever 'Irish' visitors! Both excellent cooks and very welcoming and knowledgable. It was... More

A little slice of heaven! For the adventure seeker with a family feel. Ron and Al have created a magical place. The food is amazing! We enjoyed dinner and breakfast there everyday and they were able to accomodate vegan meals and picky kids. I had problems with a rental car and Ron went out of his way to make sure... More

Our stay at Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge exceeded any expectations we could have had for our first trip to Belize. Ron helped us plan our visit before we ever arrived, giving us spot-on advice about how to prepare for traveling with a young child, including the best rental car company to use (Crystal Rental) and the proper gear to pack...

My significant other and I stayed two nights at the Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge. Ron kindly picked us up from San Ignacio as the resort was only reachable by four-wheel drive at that time of the season and we did not rent a car. The lodge is located 9 miles from San Ignacio, and the drive takes approximately 45 minutes... More

We can’t say enough about our six night stay at Macaw Bank but we’ll try. First are the people: Ron and Al are caring, funny, helpful, great conversationalists and just plain fun to be around. Their staff of local folks are attentive: Reuben serves a great drink and Jason’s knowledge of the local flora and fauna is impressive and helpful.... More
