We had the wonderful experience of staying at Caves Branch in November of 2015. We were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and I have to say, I couldn't imagine any where being a better experience. When we arrived in Belize we were greeted at the airport by a very nice young man who would be driving us to the lodge.... More

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2016

Last Christmas holiday was our first trip to Belize. Not really knowing where to go or what to do, I did a little research. This eventually led me to an exchange of information with the fine folks at Cave's Branch. First of all, they were exceptionally helpful in arranging our ENTIRE visit, not just the portion we stayed at Cave's... More

We arrived at Caves Branch soon after the hurricane. I knew they were hit badly and was amazed at how quickly they cleaned up. Aside from the missing foliage you would never know that a storm passed through. We loved this place from the minute we arrived. Even at check in they have beverages and cookies. Caves Branch absolutely knows... More

Love, love, love Caves Branch! My sister and I had an amazing adventure with fantastic guides. The place is absolutely beautiful. If you have never experienced The Black Hole, you're missing out. (Just note if you've never hiked before it's intense)

Enjoyed 4 highly structured days at Caves Branch. Liked the all-inclusive including rum and beer. But, don't touch the blender or will get expensive. Go for the adventures. They provide top-notch, well-defined daily trips to caves, ruins, waterfalls etc. The real value is they own over 50K acres including some of Belize's best caves and rivers. So, you are guaranteed...
