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

Cave's Branch was truly one of my best lifetime trips ever. Of course, it was my honeymoon so I am a bit biased. My husband was in charge of planning our honeymoon.

In August 2016, we travel from San Diego to Belize. Our experience in Belize was amazing and Caves Branch was the highlight. Our Canopy Treehouse (#25) had an amazing view of the nearby river and valleys off in the distance. Their camp style dinner buffet encourages communication and adventure sharing between the guest. The guides have great knowledge of the... 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.

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)
