My husband & I stayed at Cotton Tree Lodge for Taza's Chocolate week. It went above and beyond our expectations. If you have a sense of adventure, love nature, traveling to beautiful places and meeting friendly locals, you can't go wrong! The rooms are great, the food is fresh, healthy and plentiful and the owner and staff are wonderful. There... More

The Cotton Tree Lodge is located in the jungle, about 10 miles from the Caribbean, up the Moho River . It is a stunning setting, with no city noises, but plenty of jungle sounds (e.g. Howler Monkeys, chirping birds and insects). The river is warm and great for swimming and bird watching (over 160 varieties have been identified on the... More

Cotton Tree Lodge is nestled inside a very real jungle, so you need to be prepared for all that goes with such an experience ... like very real scorpions, large spiders and plenty of cockroaches in your living space from time to time, or not being able to flush your toilet paper, and the sound of howler monkeys all night....

We visited Cotton Tree Lodge with our 25 year old daughter and my 90 year old mother. The lodge is nestled by the Moho River in the jungle. The rooms are spacious and furnished in jungle style , spare, but with all the necessities including hot showers. The main room is spacious and comfortable . The food is overall delicious... More

We stayed there for a couple nights. Really a great staff. The idea is to be a few miles off the beaten path in the jungle. in this case rural Belize. The setting is rather nice. Another part of it is to be really Green minded and Ecological. This attracts people like me who care about the environment and a... More

Cotton Tree Lodge is a must-do for anyone traveling to Belize, or to Central America for that matter. This was my first trip and I loved it so much I knew I'd be writing this review as soon as I got back. There is something for everyone here: # solo travelers can seek adventure through cave exploration and cliff diving,... More

After spending a week on a catamaran on the Belize reefs we booked a week in the southern Belize jungle at Cotton Tree. We really did not know what to expect. We are somewhat elderly (I am 70 and my wife is 66.) so we were a little nervous. What a wonderful experience. We had a deluxe "cabin" right on... More

We are always happy to have TW guests come stay with us at Cotton Tree Lodge. The jungle is a good break after time out on the ocean, lush green plants, fresh water rivers, and a chance to reconnect with the earth. Mayan culture is the hallmark of our tours we offer....a real chance to meet locals and have an... More

This is our second trip to the Cotton Tree Lodge, and even to their surprised we again stayed in what we call the Howler Hut ( Jungle Hut) and it again proves to be an adventure. The lodge is still well maintained, staff friendly and food great. Our traveling pack(?) of monkeys still serenaded us at night although this time... More

Some guests really embrace the adventures , the Howler monkeys were "Howling" for joy at your return to the Jungle House...I know the staff felt this way about your return visit as well. More

Wow! My three adult children and I just got back from an exquisite week at Cotton Tree Lodge. It was such an awesome experience.... Just exactly what I had hoped for and more! We got the remote rainforest experience, with very comfortable lodging in a great cabana (with hammocks) and fantastic and plentiful food, and very charming and attentive staff!... More
