    So many good things to say about this hotel. The owner was really nice and accommodating. It's extremely laid back- there's no bar service; you just help yourself to drinks from the fridge, record it on the sheet of paper, and pay when you check out. My cabin was great. The bed was comfortable, and the room was very clean.... More

    Family owned business with very accommodating staff. Food served on site is authentic Belizean, which tastes amazing. The lodges/huts are very clean and comfortable. We had a great time and did not want to leave.

    My recent adventure found me very comfortably nestled in this Belizean jungle stay. The rooms were nice, the food was superb, the staff friendly. I had Eric as a guide & he was extremely knowledgable & entertaining. I visited Xunantunich Mayan site, went hiking through the jungle, caving, and birding. You can tell this is a family that put their... More

    Family operated Jungle bungalows deliver another memorable stay. We stayed here for a week April 2015. Communication good, Bungalow cleaned every morning, quiet property...even when a high school group of 25 came through for 2 nights! (we were never woken up or disturbed), meals tasty and filling. Best part is the family members-accomodating, friendly, knowledgable- I love the Belizean people!!... More

    Stayed at Beyond Paradise for two nights in April 2015. The house provided the 5 of us (two adults, 2 teens, 1 pre-teen) with ample room to relax. Very nicely done interior and no bugs...except for the scorpion that came out of the shower drain in the upstairs bathroom. Very nice grounds. Short walk down to Macal river. Wish they... More

    Eric Tut was an excellent birding guide and a considerate and helpful leader for our group of 8 birders. Four of us stayed for the full 11 days. We explored the birding from the Orange Walk, Lamanai Archeological Site and Crooked Tree to Crystal Paradise Resort and El Pilar near Guatemala. Our trip ended in the south where we birded... More

    We absolutely loved our stay at Crystal Paradise Resort! The Tut family owned and operated resort is beautiful! we stayed 4 nights and each day had an early excursion with knowledgeable guides from the resort. There was a short drive to mayan ruins, cave tubing, zip lining and so much more. We explored the town of San Ignacio and also... More

    We hired Eric Tut out of Crystal Paradise Resort as a guide for 11 pretty intense birders on a 7 day trip March 21-28, 2015. He was an excellent guide--knowledgeable, patient, helpful in every way possible. His birding skills are far beyond amazing, and I'm pretty sure he knows everyone in Belize. Over the 7 days (four nights in Crystal... More
