Looking for adventure and luxury (without breaking the bank)

Where's a good place to stay in jungle areas that has:

* high adventure (kayaks, rappelling, good hiking)

* excellent food

* reasonably luxurious but doesn't seem like a resort

* not outrageously priced (we're a family of 5)

In short, we're looking for a less expensive option to the Belize Jungle Excursions (and one that is a little easier to get to), a little more adventurous than Chaa Creek, and a little more luxurious than Caves Branch.

Your suggestions would be most welcome. I've been searching for days and haven't found quite the right spot for us.

Suggestions?

Many thanks.

Many thanks, Katie, for the suggestions.

If you were going to go one level up from Hidden Valley Inn or duPlooys, what would it be?

Thanks again!

What about Jungle Dome, Katie? Do you think that could be along the lines of what this family seems to be looking for?

Sorry, that's probably not a step up.

Step up would be Blancaneax near HVI or Chaa Creek near duPlooys. Jungle Dome is fine, but npot similiar to these
