The cabanas are clean, some rooms have outdoor showers and rooms w a jungle view enclosed w a screen to keep the bugs out. Also a hammock to enjoy the nature. It's close to all the fun outdoor activities as well. The bartender... More

Mariposa Jungle Lodge was a perfect choice for our extended-family vacation. Sharyn and her staff were amazingly helpful. We came to Belize with dietary restrictions, but with a bit of planning, the kitchen staff was able to help accommodate us, and did so extremely well. Esau, the chef, was a pleasure to deal with, and was very pleasant, despite the... More

Sadly, Hurricane Earl had a different vacation in mind for us. When we arrived at the Belize City airport were met by a driver for our original resort, who informed us that... More

Sharyn and her staff were absolutely amazing, from helping us plan our day excursions to accommodating our family's unique needs. They were courteous and solicitous for months of planning (literally), and throughout our entire stay. The cabins are spacious and beautiful, and the food was fabulous.

Mariposa was the right decision. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can book tours from the lodge or in advance. We had a nice tour to Tikal in Guatamala and the ATM cave arranged by the lodge. I recommend both.
