I ate at Calico Jack's with three colleagues of mine on November 3, 2016. The dining room was clean, well-lit and welcoming. We were in a hurry, so we did the boring thing and ordered nachos. They were pretty good. The trouble with chips in Belize is that they are rarely dry and crisp. I have ordered Nachos at probably...

My husband I came here on my honeymoon. They sent someone to pick us up from our resort in San Ignacio and took us straight to the zipline start where we began the CJV extreme tour. We had 2 excellent tour guides and were the only ones in the group. We didn't see anyone around so it felt like a...

Calico Jack's Village is an amazing place. Located in the heart of the rainforest where one can experience the sights, sounds and sensations of the jungle; it provides an extraordinary, full-service jungle resort experience. The accomodations were very nice, the staff was outstanding (helpful, fun, engaging, up-beat, personable) and the food was delicious. In addition, the staff was extremely helpful...

Cant say enough about how I loved Calico Jacks. The rain forest environment is magical. My accommodation was lovely and secure. The dining room with lounge looking out at the pool is inviting and comfortable. I eat mostly vegetarian so was very pleased by their variety of menu offerings. The Belizean food and Vegetarian (American inspired with a Belizean twist)...

So many great things to say about Calico Jack's Village. Pros: *Beautiful location *Wonderful Staff, *Great accommodations, *Fabulous Tour Guides, *Best Zip Line I've ever been on. Cons: *No Wifi to speak of (I know you're in the jungle, but people should know if they are going to go there) Wasn't a big issue for us as we only stayed...

Thank you for visiting us! For clarification, we do have wifi service so guests can check their email though our location in the rainforest means that there are not systems and infrastructure available yet to support high speed cable and the downloading/uploading of large files.

We had John, Alex and Raymond for our guides for our zip line adventure. They were knowledgeable and friendly. It was myself and my mother, it was her first time and we did the intermediate course. Great time with great guides.

Thank you taking your time to provide feedback on your impromptu overnight visit. Thank you also for the positive feedback concerning our “excellent” staff and “beautiful” grounds.

We wanted to spend 1/2 day zipping through the jungle of Belize. We had our small group of 4 and the two best guides we could ask for. Last zip absolute best at 500 feet long. Awesome and personal experience with no huge crowd or commercialism. We had a fantastic time.

“Building the "Palace" which is not open yet (April 2015) so maybe they are better designed. Temple rooms are very good for larger groups or families.”
