Mystic River is phenomenal-- if you're traveling with a nice budget do yourself a favor and stay there. Beautiful grounds, amazing people, relaxing environment. Couple of notes worth mentioning: -Ben was a phenomenal tour guide-- if you have an adventurous side definitely do the ATM tour. -The food and drinks at the resort were excellent--and they use lots of ingredients...

Hello Emma, We are so happy to hear you had such a great time at Mystic River Resort and that you took the time to write a review for us. I truly wish that I could base our tour prices on the entrance fees of the parks alone but unfortunately there are too many other costs that have to be...

We recently stayed at Mystic River to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. We were very excited after reading the reviews on trip advisor. The place is wonderful and pretty much everything described. There were a few KEY things I wish someone had mentioned before going to better prepare me for my trip. If money is not an issue with...

We stayed in late October with our 2 young (and wild) sons (ages 2 and 4) and our Au Pair (we booked 2 cottages) and we had an amazing time. The resort is beautiful and private. You are deep in the jungle and it feels that way except that you get to stay in a luxury truly ecological resort with...

We had a great time at Mystic River. The owners are fantastic and go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are beautiful and private, overlooking the river. The food is fantastic, particularly as much of it is harvested on site. They even make their own goat cheese. I...

We absolutely loved this place! The owners and staff made us feel like family. The rooms, which are nestled in the jungle with well manicured walkways, are free standing with fireplaces and private patios. The view from our patio was amazing with the Macal River below and so many different birds and wildlife to watch. We loved spending early mornings...

Have to give credit to our travel agent who booked Mystic River for us; however, it would have been nice if she had told us that it was a 2 hour ride to the resort. At first we were apprehensive about traveling another 2 hours by car, but we are here to tell you the resort was worth every minute...

Hello. "Wish we could have stayed longer" that is one of the most popular phrase our guests use when they leave us! We are thinking of having a T-shirt printed that would say just that! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We hope to see you again in the future! Take care...

Nadege and Thomas has truly created something very special at Mystic River. Over 100 acres make up a resort with endless options for activities and pampering, while 8 little cottages perched along the hillside, overlooking a meandering river and dense forests create the 'lodge' feel. But the immediate sense of comfort and homeyness (the fireplaces in every room don't hurt!)...

After, over, a four year hiatus we finally made it back to Mystic River but this time brought my sister and her husband to show them what the mainland had to offer. Neither had been to San Ignacio before so for them it was a new experience. Our first stay at Mystic River was when they were still relatively new...

I highly recommend Mystic River Resort. It was an amazing experience of a lifetime and one to check off my bucket list!

I normally don't write reviews on tripadvisor but was compelled to do it because the owners Nadege and Tom made our journey to Belize memorable. We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to comeback after we had visited Caye Caulker. We returned back to Mystic River after having stayed 2 nights because the food was amazing, the laundry...
