Ron and staff do a great job making the jungle your home. Comfortable rooms, and excellent service in this eco freindly environment. Great river swimming, flora, fauna with access to many other activities in the country. There were no bugs and enjoyed moon light outdoor showers.

We spent 4 nights at Macaw Bank Lodge with 4 young children (ages 9, 7, 4, and 3) and my mother (age 64). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The grounds of Macaw Bank are beautiful and have easy access to the river bank where our children could safely swim in gentle, shallow water. I spotted toucans in the trees early in... More

The grounds are gorgeous, the food is delicious and the cabanas are comfortable. You are in the middle of the jungle so if you aren't adventurous or are afraid of critters or creatures, stay in...

I truly feel blessed to have stayed at the Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge! This isn't the first jungle lodge I've stayed in. However, it is the most beautiful and magical place I've seen. If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't believe it. It surpassed all my expectations. The bed was more comfortable than my own and the lodge was wonderful!... More

This was a departure for my husband and I, who generally favor beach vacations. We absolutely loved our time at Macaw Bank, an absolute gem in the middle of the Belize jungle. The room was clean, comfortable, and decorated perfectly for the setting. We loved sitting on the screened in porch and listening to the wildlife around us. There are... More

My friend and I recently spent time at the Macaw Lodge and had the best time! The owners, Ron & Al made sure we had everything we needed. The hospitality was outstanding and their staff was extremely friendly. They set up our tours and we had a blast! Can't wait to visit again!

The people who run this lodge are very friendly, informative, and helpful. The lodge grounds were beautiful and many hiking trails are very close by. I only had a couple of minor complaints: the dinners were a little expensive, and the bed could have been more comfortable, but I'm sure it's hard to keep pillows and bedding fluffy in the... More
