This is the best resort I have ever been to. My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon, and our trip was an absolute dream. The rooms were amazing, the ENTIRE staff was incredible and the excursions were better than we could have ever imagined. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, we truly felt spoiled. Being immersed in the jungle that way was truly unforgettable. The guides are all very knowledgeable and kept everyone very safe. We did cave tubing, zip lining, saw Mayan ruins and the waterfall jumping. Every one of them exceeded our expectations. We also loved spending time in the pool area. Most of the excursions are done by 3:30, so there is some down time between that and dinner. It was really fun hanging with the other couple of guests who were there, talking about the fun adventures of the day. The food was also out of this world. Truly, every single meal was an absolute delight. I could truly live off the tortillas. I cannot recommend Caves Branch enough. We cannot wait to go back :)

Staying in this place was one of the best experiences of my life! Hearing howler monkeys in the night and waking up with the sounds of the jungle was unforgettable! Furthermore, the food in Caves Branch is excellent and the staff is very polite and helpful. Highly recommended

Incredible experience with the Caves Branch team. From Alejandro who helped with planning to the staff on-site, everyone was deeply skilled, professional, and just fun to hang out with. Our guides for 2 days were Ivan and Wilmer – they're kind, fun, skilled, professional, and have the perfect calm yet adventurous attitude to make our time in the jungle and caves such a fun experience. Definitely recommend as a big highlight to our time in Belize. Thanks to everyone at Caves Branch!

I visited this lovely property with a friend last weekend and It allowed me to experience more adventure and adrenaline than I had in a very long time. I loved the jungle feel of the property and how I felt “one with nature” the entire time, even in my beautiful bedroom I could hear the sounds of the monkeys and birds living on the property. I even saw Belize’s National Bird, the Keel Billed Toucan. I was so excited as I hadn’t seen one in years. ;-) The meals and drinks were awesome as well as the top-knotch service from all the staff! I think it’s worth mentioning that the guides on the tours were really impressive, kind, and knowledgeable, and the dining staff were always so attentive and caring. Will I be back? There’s no way I wouldn’t go back to such an amazing property. Jungle Fever! My adventure filled weekend!

Going to Belize? Make this your stay. We did 3 days in the jungle at Ian Anderson's and 4 days on San Pedro and it was perfect. Ian Anderson's was my favorite part of our trip. The resort is beautiful and truly sitting in the middle of a jungle with all the wildlife and vegetation you can imagine. The staff made it feel like family as well. A special shoutout to our guide on the Black Hole Drop, Carlos. He taught us so much on the trip and we shared jokes and stories all day. We were looking for a trip that would challenge us as far as different adventures all while showing us the many stories Belize has to share. We were able to see the Mayan Ruins and rappel/explore some caves close by. The actual resort experience surprised me too. The accommodations were very nice and the pool area made for a welcome sight after a long day of adventuring. They have a set menu for the day for food, so your options are limited but this actually made it even better do not have to make a lot of decisions. And the food was excellent. This was a friends trip, but I would advise anyone looking for a little different/adventurous trip to go here! They have options for extreme thrill seekers to people who want to just see cool things not so much on the wild side. You wont regret it.
