“Accessible jungle setting...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2005

If you'd like to plunge right into the jungle after you fly into Belize City, Jaguar Paw Lodge is just up the highway toward Belmopan about an hour and will give you a nice Belizean baptism. Compact and sheltered under dense foliage a few miles down a typically rocky Belizean road from the main highway, Jaguar Paw offers cool and comfortable if idiosyncratic rooms. Imagine a truncated Belizean version of "Apocalypse Now" -- in the middle of the jungle, Victorian antique-filled rooms and a quaint tropical bar. The Jaguar Paw packaging is, admittedly, a bit artificial, but somehow it works.

Unfortunately the kitchen doesn't. The food is not above what a stateside Marriott dining room can rustle up. And once you get past the thematic conceits, the lighting and bathroom conditions in the rooms leave something to be desired. But as a one-stop first-nighter in the Belizean wild, Jaguar Paw is convenient and cute...
