With 15 runs, Edgar and William made our ziplining experience at Calico Jack’s exhilarating, personal and safe. We chose to do the ultimate explorer experience and the Jungle Swing. William has been there since the construction 11 years ago and was a calming presence while Edgar brought a youthful spirit to each run. Using an open hydraulic elevator for the last run was a thrilling way to finish our first ziplining adventure. The Jungle Swing which drops over 50 ft was a once in a lifetime experience, for almost all ages, that had my 22 year old daughter and me at almost 60 year old, screaming and then giggling with glee.

As a family of 5 adults and 2 children we stayed in two villas at Calico Jacks. We enjoyed the location. It was a little off of the beaten path which is what we look for with our accommodations. The location gives you a taste of remote village coupled with great service from the staff. We ate several meals both breakfast and dinner. Once the kids tasted the fried tacos, they wanted them every night. We canoed Barton Creek, went to the pools and falls in the Mountain Pine Ridge area. We also made the trek to Caracol. We arrived at 9:00 and had the ruins to ourselves for over an hour. They are partially working on the main road, so expect a bumpy ride. We did make it to San Ignacio for a short trek, but we quickly headed back to the quieter area around Calico Jacks. If you prefer a jungle experience, this is the place for you. Calico Jacks gives you a different experience, if you enjoy an adventure.

If you’re in Belize or planning to visit Belize, don’t you dare leave without visiting Calico Jacks. I have ziplined before but my experience here exceeds all others, the scenery’s was beyond beautiful, the combination of hiking, climbing and elevator rides to get to the various zips added a different element of ziplining I’ve never done before. Our tour guides made us feel very comfortable (even when i was strapped up to the jungle swing freaked out, started crying and changed my mind 😅)

Nestled in the heart of the rainforest, Calico Jacks is not only an amazing place to stay, but offers so many adventures! Walking in, we did all the standard Covid safety procedures. Once cleared, our magical stay began. Maria is a fantastic manager and cook. She helped us organize all of our adventures during our stay. We went on a guided hike on the property with Elias. Elias is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The next day, Maria set it up for us to go to the ATM caves and organized the trip for us. Our final day there, Elias took us on an amazing day adventure to a cave, then the incredible Caracol ruins, and then to natural pools in the river. We finished each day with an amazing meal prepared by Maria. My fiancé and I felt like true royalty staying here. We highly recommend staying here and participating in all the activities. Next time we visit Belize, we will absolutely be staying here and participating in more adventures they have to offer.

Wow, what a great space to retreat from the world and get nourished! Dr Ydahlia, Maria take care of mind and body and Elias and Team are there to break the stillness with the heart-stopping jungle swing (the yells you hear won’t be from the howler monkeys🤣), with great cave and natural pool hikes and great quality zip-lining and rappelling. Great place to enter another world. Escape, relax, create.
