They are extremely friendly, and are there for anything you may need, from laundry service to another beverage. Food - The food onsite was fantastic. They... More

Mystic River Lodge - San Ignacio, Belize. PROS: -true deep jungle experience on Macal river; a Birder's paradise, lizards and indigenous flora and fauna. -This is an eco-lodge! They raise their own chickens for meat and eggs, goats for milk and cheese, and many vegetables and fruits come from their own property. They reuse gray water for watering the grounds.... More

Thanks to Nadege, Tom and their incredible, wonderful staff for my fifth stay, better than ever. I write archaeological novels and this has been my base for lots of forays into the jungle and the ruins. Mystic River's food is 5-star, Leo at the bar serves up a mean ice-cold martini and the wine list is great too. I love... More

We travel frequently and found Mystic River to be one of the best places we have ever been to. We can't say enough good things about it. The entire staff made an effort to know all of our names, which impressed our twin boys, and the service is excellent. Upon departing, our family of 5 left feeling like part of... More

Once you make your reservation at Mystic River, all good starts. Everything is looked after since you arrive to Belize airport till the time you leave. Arriving you start hearing birds and feeling peaceful pleasure. All is perfect. Very nice suites with flowers, all activities are perfectly organized. Nadege, Tom and the team look after all, gently and unintrusive. Nadege... More

The instant we got there they did nothing but help us. They adjusted the package we purchased to accommodate one of our traveling party who couldn't do the more strenuous activities. The entire place is so self sustaining. They grow their own food, their own generator, their own herd of goats. You'll have to visit to see all the other... More

This place is the bee's knees! We ended up here after a few days on the beach and the difference in landscape was incredible. This was our honeymoon and the trip was planned for us so we had no idea what to expect, but if we did have any expectations they would have been met above and beyond. The staff,... More

We stayed at Mystic River for our honeymoon in July 2013. It was the perfect jungle escape after a week in San Pedro. Nadege and Tom, the owners are wonderful and informative. We loved talking to them, and getting to know their granddaughter, as well as their sweet dogs (one of whom had just had puppies!). The ATM cave with... More
