Mystic River Resort is a beyond amazing placed deep in the Belizean jungle. We got picked up by one of the owners, Nadege. We drove, and drove and drove and drove, wondering where are we going? And Walla Mystic River Resort appears; it’s a magical slice of heaven (I mean jungle), it truly is a magical place in the jungle.... More

Beautiful farm and a lot to see around the area, including horses, goats, sheep, the river, tubing and more. Expect to pay a... More

Mystic River is beautiful. It is private and quiet with the option for mini adventures. The food is excellent. The staff is great. We went on 2 birding excursions, an amazing ride on a polaris through towns and jungle, a canoe trip in to town and excellent trips to the ruins. The balcony off of our room was also a... More

It is 7 miles off a dirt road up in the jungle. They make their own cheese, milk, soap, and grow their own vegetables. They also generate their own electricity. Totally amazing. The people there are so friendly. The owner constantly checked on us to make sure we were having a blast. It's reclusive. The rooms are beautiful. Only bad... More

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 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
