If you want to visit the jungle, I recommend the lodge owned by these two guys originally from Baltimore, Maryland USA! They bought the jungle property and cleared enough of the 50 acres of land to make cabins, restaurant, bar, and access to the river. It it truly a peaceful oasis! My favorite part of staying at the lodge was... More

The lodge is located in a tranquil environment for either a romantic getaway or family bonding. We had a family of eight and Ron and his staff were excellent in accommodating our stay. The rooms were nice, the food was great, and everyone made us feel like their family. We will definitely be returning!

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

We stayed here for 4 nights with another family and our teenage children. Ron, Al and their amazing staff were all so friendly and accomodating. 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
