Our study abroad group has completed the canoeing tour to San Ignacio the past few years. Each year we arrive early in the morning to hike the trails, enjoy the yoga platform overlooking the river, and relax in the lounge area before we depart. We also eat a quick lunch. The scenery is beautiful, the food is amazing, the staff... More

Our family of four stayed here 4 nights in May, 2015. The cabins are very well built and perched over the river. We sat out on the balcony every morning and evening watching the small toucans fly around us, and slept blissfully at night to the sounds of the jungle with all the windows open. Our kids loved all the... More

We recently visited mystic river resort for part 1 of our honeymoon. We spent three nights here, I cannot even begin to explain how amazing the staff at mystic river is.

We spent a week at Mystic River, the cabins were deluxe with fireplaces overlooking the Mccal River. The food was delicious, many items grown in their own garden, cheese made there and served in a lovely open air dining room. The cool bar was fun to converse with other guests and the owners. All the tours of Tekal, canoe trips,... More

I stayed at Mystic River for eight nights with my husband and 11 year old twin boys. I had high expectations due to the great Trip Advisor Reviews, but they were exceeded by Nadege and her team. And even more impressively, this has been the only trip that's trumped Disney in my boys' eyes .... an amazing feat, indeed!! The... More

We left Maya Beach after a few days of relaxation to head to the jungle for a few days of adventure. Little did we know, we were in store for quite a luxurious experience. We arrived at the resort and after checking in, walked through the door of a nicely decorated and quite stylish cottage. All of the modern amenities... More

Though the road into Mystic River might be a bit rough, it is totally worth the effort. Nadege and her staff were wonderful. The food was really good every night, and we always had enough to eat. My boys actually looked forward to dinner time! Each tour we took while there were exactly what we expected them to be. Our... More

We stayed at Mystic River for five days from March 30th to April 4th. Nadege picked us up at the Belize City Airport. It was a 2 hour drive to the Resort. Keep in mind that most of the roads in Belize are not paved so it is a bumpy ride. The staff at Mystic River were outstanding. I can't... More

Belize is so well known for its reef, but don't overlook inland Belize! It offers a great mix of activities for everyone - Mayan ruins, hikes, nature, birding, and adventure tours. The best part is, you have a beautiful hotel with attentive hosts to help you experience it all! Nadege and Tom go above and beyond to make sure your... More

We had an amazing 10 days in Belize, five nights at Mystic River. The entire staff endeavored to make it the best stay possible! The guides of the Mayan sites and caves, or for horseback riding or canoeing, the waiters and bartender, the cook (fabulous fresh food from an extensive garden!), and of course the owners, Nadege and Tom.
