We stayed 6 nights (family of 4) in Mariposa and had a lovely time. Nelmarie who was in charge of the place was friendly,informative and very helpful ( thanks again for helping us with the problem concerning our car). The place is situated off a little bumpy road in the jungle. The garden is well maintained and the swimming pool... More

Friendly staff, great setting in the woods. Rooms were very clean and well furnished. Our son loved the pool. Good location for exploring surrounding sites: Caracol, Barton Cave, Pine Ridge, 1000 foot falls, etc. The only negative is that compared to other options around, the food, albeit good, was very pricy. It would have about right in belizean dollars instead... More

My family stayed at Mariposa for the second half of our 9-day spring break vacation. The jungle setting is beautiful, and the staff made sure we had everything we needed, including lots of information on our outings. They were always there when we needed them, but never intrusive. The cabanas are airy and comfortable. All the furniture and cabinetry was... More

TripAdvisor did us marvelous- again! Mariposa came out #1 on our select list and here's why: small, catered-care, quiet, great staff, good food, beautifully tended grounds, comfy cabana. We spent 3 nights. ATM cave was arduous but fun (vine snake on trek in and foot blisters on trek out but hey...) Night canoe with Andy simply awesome- we saw many... More

After arriving at the airport you will breeze through customs and someone will be waiting for you. We had Eric waiting for us and on route to the Lodge he was very informative about what we were seeing. The drive on paved road was 67 miles....the next 9 miles to the lodge is on rough road. We were greeted by... More

My wife and I spent five nights at the Mariposa resort with another couple. The resort staff took excellent care of us with personalized service. The meals were exceptional and the staff pampered us. In one case a member of our party dropped their wallet in the parking area. A staff member found it in the dark and returned it... More

Here are SOME of the problems I experienced at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge: -Expensive for what it is. -Falsely advertised the proximity to the city. Driving time to San Ignacio was something like 45 minutes to an hour for something that was mileage wise supposedly close. Therefore, we had to use their car service often and spend a lot to... More

We have been meaning to write this review for months as it is well deserved. We had a wonderful time at Mariposa!! We are confident our trip would not have gone as smoothly without Sharyn's assistance. Despite the extreme rain while we were there (which closed ATM and cave-tubing as well as roads to many Mayan sites) Sharyn and Nelmarie... More

We stayed at Mariposa Jungle Lodge from March 29 to April 5th. This was our first Belize experience and luckily I found an ad about Mariposa when I was researching Belize. We only had to contact Sharyn Brinker by email and she took it from there. She is totally amazing and our trip was fantastic because of her planning and... More
