My husband and I travel extensively for work and for fun all over the world and I must say that our experience at Belcampo this past week has been a highlight of our international travel experiences. The Rooms: We stayed in room 16, which is one of the new ridge suites. It is absolutely worth the additional money to stay... More

My husband and I have spent a week here three of the last four years. There is nowhere else like it. The staff is like none you have ever seen. They cannot do enough for you and are all personally invested in becoming your friend, helper and guide. The fishing is always a great challenge and the on site activities... More

Breakfast on the Veranda sitting above the jungle canopy sipping fresh served chemex brewed coffee with an elegant touch of class from our server Daniel, this place is nothing short of "are you kidding me" top notch experience.

Went on a fishing trip two weeks ago. The wind was blowing hard so the fishing was mediocre at best, but the lodge and surrounding scenery made up for the lack of catching fish. The lodge is first class, great food, great staff, and the operators of the lodge know exactly how to treat their guests. This is the type... More

Rooms were great, food was excellent, and the staff were the friendliest and most accommodating I have ever experienced. Good for families or couples alike, and if you are into birding as we are, the dining tables on the veranda provide an excellent place from which to view many of the colorful Central American species. A Top 10 place to... More

We spent four nights at Belcampo Lodge this past December and what an amazing stay it was. We took our two adult sons with us as we do every year before Christmas and this was "hands down" the most amazing place we've ever stayed. We were a bit anxious about going somewhere we'd never heard of before reading the rave... More

Our 10 day stay from February 11th to the 21st was fantastic. We kayaked, went snorkeling with the chef, swam under the Rio Bianco Waterfalls, made chocolate, toured the spice garden and farm and took the 4 day birding trip. Every activity was pure pleasure.

We spent three nights here in a modern room set high in the canopy. Don't worry about steps, there is a tram ride to the river and another to the four modern rooms where we stayed.
