This is absolutely one of my favorite places in Belize. GREAT EXPERIENCE!! Theo and Marcus are awesome and very accomodating. They booked my tour, helped my change my transportation (THANK YOU!!!) and were very gracious hosts! The Parrot Nest Lodge is nestled in the illustrious jungle on the Mopan river. It was really cool and totally what I was looking for. They have some giant iguanas that campoutright in front. Marcus referred to one as "Godzilla" which was an appropriate name. They have free tubes if you want to take a short hike and tube down the river. The main lodge has wifi, really comfortable lounging chairs, and plenty of hammocks. I stayed in cabin 8 which was cozy and clean. It did not have a bathroom which to me was perfectly fine. It's really no issue. The bathrooms are very close and clean. The tree house looked pretty exciting to stay as well which some of my newly met friends stayed at. The dinners were amazing and I enjoyed being able to sit at dinner and talk with other fellow travelers. The desserts were toe curling good! That chocolate brownie and then the icecream were incredible. They have a beer and soda fridge which is done on the honor system of writing how many beers your have had on a note pad. It was funny to see how my beer marks resemebled the writing of a 4 year old as the night went on. They will serve you breakfast as well. The Marie's Coconut spread on the table is worth trying. It's absolutely mouth watering good. Try it on french toast or any toast. This really is a perfect jungle oasis on the river. Theo arranged my tour at the ATM which was one of the best things I have ever done. If you need any shuttle to and fro Belize City or Placencia, I would suggest using their preferred driver "William". He will turn the drive into a tour which is so worth it. I rode with him down to Placencia after meeting another traveler who was heading that way. He even has free wifi in the van. We made side stops at the blue river and an mininite icecream stand. Anyways, if you go to Belize, make sure you make a stop at the Parrot's Nest Lodge!! Sooo cool! Thanks again Theo and Marcus!
