The staff at Cotton Tree Lodge was amazing. They did their best to accommodate every need we had. We traveled in early June and it was rather hot and humid but the bugs weren't terrible and there were no sand fleas like several other reviews mentioned. Make sure to ask for a floor fan and bring a flashlight per person.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Cotton Tree lodge. Really comfortable accommodation but still right in the wilds of the jungle. Wildlife everywhere (iguanas, fireflies, howler monkeys) and lovely swimming in or kayaking down the river to cool off. Trips are great - cave swimming and Aladdio's farm is a must. Nocturnal walk was also fun.

We really enjoyed the food, excursions, environment and people! We fished multiple days and had a wonderful time. The staff cooked our fish for dinners as well as prepared it for their own families. We also did two cave adventures. One was hiking and one was swimming. Both very fun and not too challenging. We also visited Eladio's Cocao farm... More

Lots of activities to do if you want to , we just loved gently kayaking on the Moho river, sights and sounds of the... More

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....

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
