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

We spent 3 days at The Cotton Tree and loved every minute of it. Our cabana was clean and just lovely, yes there are mosquitoes, bugs, etc, what would you expect it IS the jungle ! 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

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
