It was a marvellous jungle experience on a beautiful property that has exceptional accommodations, outstanding service and opportunities for unique and personalized local excursions. The staff were super friendly and provided a high level of service. I really enjoyed the cabin like...

My wife and I stayed at Mariposa Jungle Lodge during the first part of our honeymoon in Belize and it was absolutely wonderful. I have zero complaints. The cabins are very nice and comfortable; you won't believe how relaxing it is to fall asleep to the noises of the jungle. The food and the excursions are top notch (I totally...

My husband and I had a couple key points we wanted to hit while on our honeymoon. We wanted a little bit of beach, adventure, and relaxation. We booked through St. George's Caye and split our time between them and Mariposa Jungle Lodge because they we able to offer all of these things. We were picked up from the airport...

I stayed at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge for 5 nights with my 2 adult children, and we had a fantastic time. The room was nice - smallish, but adequate, with 2 twin beds and a queen. It was very clean. The very large bathroom and shower with lots of hot water was a bonus. The screen room with a hammock...

The facilities are quite comfortable and modern, and the food is tasty, providing a nice place to relax between visiting all the great places of interest in the area. There's plenty to do including caves,...

We agree with all the five star reviews - the owners are knowledgeable and very helpful, making it easy to see the key places of interest. All the drivers and guides associated with the lodge are excellent. Make sure to see Caracol and do the ATM cave. We'd come back again and stay there to see several sites that we...

My best friend and I spent 3 nights at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge. They had an overbooking on Expedia so we were upgraded to the biggest hut right when we got there! The loge grounds are beautiful. We spent a few hours on one of the days taking the hike through the jungle that leaves right from the lodge. We...

Mariposa Jungle Lodge is really getting away from it all. The facilities I don't think are meant for the vacationer who wants to relax by the pool. It is a comfortable place to come to after a day of exploring. Sharyn, the owner, was great about scheduling our trips. We hiked inside (and swam) a Mayan cave, visited an ancient...

I'm glad your family enjoyed some of the highlights of our Cayo District, as well as family time together. We bow to reality and offer wifi in cabanas and throughout the resort but we draw the line at television and intentionally choose not to have it.
