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

The resort is beautiful and the rooms are cozy with great decorations. The dining area is open with birds eating the food left by the owner out on the balcony. Great opportunity to view birds up close. The breakfast, lunch and dinners were served family style and prepared with love and great ingredients. The food was so tasty and enjoyable.... More

The setting and family are perfect. Beautiful grounds and the huts/rooms are very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is run by the family and they serve up wonderful food. A must stay if in the area.

We booked Crystal Paradise after looking at several other properties mainly because of the birding experience there. We got so much more. This sweet property used to be the Tut family farm until father Victor Tut pulled up the crops and went into the tourism business. This family is so welcoming and friendly. Carolita was in charge of the meals... More

From the time we were picked up at the airport to the time we were dropped off a week later, we enjoyed our stay at Crystal Paradise. The family-owned and operated resort was wonderful and very well-run. It was so enjoyable to talk with them about life in Belize and they made us feel right at home. The rooms are... More

We stayed here 4 nights and for us that was enough. I must admit that Cristal Paradise was not our first choice for our stay in Cayo, we made a reservation elsewhere but this got mixed up so we had to find something else last minute and we ended up in CP. There are some good things to say about... More

My wife and I spent 3 days last month at Crystal Paradise Resort, as part of an 8 day birding tour in Belize arranged by Paradise Expeditions. The Tut family took excellent care of us while we were at Crystal Paradise and our guide/driver for the birding tour was Andy Tut. Andy has an amazing ability to find and identify... More
