Ian Anderson's Caves Branch Jungle Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 15, 2012

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Caves Branch and it was one of the most wonderufl experiences we have had! From the moment we got there everyone was so nice and welcoming. The first day we were there we went on the Tecal tour wich had a wonderful tour guide and we experienced great food. Our second adventure was the 7 mile caves tubing, do not think this will be a relaxing float you actually have to work at it. The caves were amazing! At the end of everyday everyone gathers for dinner and all the meals were wonderful and meeting new people was great. The riverview treehouse we stayed in was beautiful and a great end to a busy day. We will definetly recommend this place and will be making a return trip as soon as we can!

Room Tip: the treehouses are definetly the way to go if you want a view

Great outdoors adventure for entire family! Must be fit to enjoy stay! Caving, diving, exploring Mayan ruins and much more! Trip to Tikal is a long day but worth it! Grounds are beautiful, treehouses are amazing, food is family style all you can eat at set times (not gourmet). Love the staff--everyone is very friendly and helpful. No need to plan ahead just show up and make all your day plans once you arrive on property--very easy and safe! No need to rent a car! We took our 15 and 17 old with us and we all had a blast! Fun family vacation for elementary schoolers and up!

Room Tip: Tree houses are cool!

This was the second time I had visited here. It was even better this time than in 2006 and that was awesome!!!! I tell all my friends about Caves Branch. We had an extraordinary time here. The grounds and lodging are beautiful and the people are all so helpful and friendly. The adventures are way cool. I will be going back again and again!

Room Tip: In 2006 I stayed in a suite on the ground as there were no treehouses at that time. That was a great...

I highly recommend Caves Branch to anyone seeking a getaway in a gorgeous, eco-friendly environment. If you want an active vacation, This resort is for the very physically fit and brave who want to be pushed to the extreme. Caves Branch is the place for you. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the guides are very knowledgeable.

Great experience, excellent staff, Eugene Rocks! excursions to make your nose bleed. Don't forget the Bocawina Zipline! Tikal is needed for the true Mayan experience. Can't say enough about the guided trip from Caves branch to Tikal, long day but truely worth it. Caving with Carlos was fun and exciting (especially when my tube poped!) Carlos puts out great energy to make everyones trip fun. Food and beverage. makes me want to run away from home and become a local. Not for everyone but if..you want something to talk about for days to come this is the place.

Room Tip: Try the tree houses, doesn't get any better than this!

Caves Branch Resort and Jungle Lodge has figured it out. This establishment is for adult adventure lovers, and should be listed as adults preferred. That being said; expect to have your physical abilities, senses, and imagination challenged. The accommodations are great. You can select from a treehouse, cabana, or a suite, some with two bedrooms. All of the accommodations are nestled within the jungle. Be prepared to commune with nature. No makeup, cosmetics, or grooming is needed, you are in the jungle!. The meals aren't gormet, or average, but are very good. I recommend that you get the all inclusive package, which includes beverages. There are daily activities that will meet your expectations so take advantage of what is offered. The staff is fabulous, and will meet your needs. You are in the jungle so there isn't wifi, telephones, clocks, or television. I recommend lots of insect repellant, old clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting wet, dirty, or maybe just leave behind after your visit. It will be humid so expect to have damp clothes thoughout your stay. By the way, they offer landuary service for a fee. You are in the jungle so camera gear my not weather the humid or damp conditions so give consideration with what you bring to record your memories. Romance, relaxation, and adventure will be yours at Caves Branch and Jungle Lodge.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms require climbing stairs (as many as 200 stairs or more). You are in the jungle he...

3 of us went to Caves branch 11/7/12-11/11/12 and stayed in treehouse 25. Beautiful views of the jungle canopy lots of critters hanging out up there...monkeys and wild cats. We had baby red back tarantula in our room about the 4 inches round. Kareem came to our rescue and put him back outside where he belongs. The staff were great, nice, professional and friendly. Ian and his wife took time to go around and talk to the folks gathering around at meal times. You can tell Ian and his wife take pride in what they do and really care about making sure their guests are satisfied. The tours were amazing. Our favorite guide was Chinng. He is very knowledgeable and a great guy. I will definitely go back and bring along more people with me. I met many great people and made new friends. I had the time of my life!

BThe stairs were insane to walk up, but once you got up there and saw the beautiful view of the jungle canopy...

Ian Anderson and his wife take a lot of pride in Caves branch
