My husband I came here on my honeymoon. They sent someone to pick us up from our resort in San Ignacio and took us straight to the zipline start where we began the CJV extreme tour. We had 2 excellent tour guides and were the only ones in the group. We didn't see anyone around so it felt like a... More

Calico Jack's Village is an amazing place. Located in the heart of the rainforest where one can experience the sights, sounds and sensations of the jungle; it provides an extraordinary, full-service jungle resort experience. The accomodations were very nice, the staff was outstanding (helpful, fun, engaging, up-beat, personable) and the food was delicious. In addition, the staff was extremely helpful... More

Cant say enough about how I loved Calico Jacks. The rain forest environment is magical. My accommodation was lovely and secure. The dining room with lounge looking out at the pool is inviting and comfortable. I eat mostly vegetarian so was very pleased by their variety of menu offerings. The Belizean food and Vegetarian (American inspired with a Belizean twist)... More

Thank you for visiting us! For clarification, we do have wifi service so guests can check their email though our location in the rainforest means that there are not systems and infrastructure available yet to support high speed cable and the downloading/uploading of large files. More

We had John, Alex and Raymond for our guides for our zip line adventure. They were knowledgeable and friendly. It was myself and my mother, it was her first time and we did the intermediate course. Great time with great guides.

We did the zip line here. The guides were professional and friendly. Nice place, buildings were very well maintained. Would recommend for zip line. Would have liked to see the overnight accommodations but I would imagine there very nice.

The staff is excellent, very personable and friendly and the grounds are beautiful. However, the room we stayed in (Sun Temple) only has 1 window that opens and you have to pay an extra $20 for...

We wanted to spend 1/2 day zipping through the jungle of Belize. We had our small group of 4 and the two best guides we could ask for. Last zip absolute best at 500 feet long. Awesome and personal experience with no huge crowd or commercialism. We had a fantastic time.

We originally booked a ziplining and cave tubing tour with another company. However, after heavy bouts of rain, the other company implicitly canceled our trip the day of.
