Great place, great food, great accommodations. We stayed in the bungalows because the tree houses were all booked. We absolutely loved them. Private, large, comfortable and loved falling asleep and waking to the sounds of the jungle. Our caves tubing was outstanding...I was in awe the whole time of the immense size and the history of the river and caves....

We had no idea what to expect before we arrived. We got an email reminding us that it isn't a resort and not to expect a lot of amenities which led me to think we may not have running water or electricity in our cabana. We were blown away when we arrived. Our suite was A-maze-Ing. First of all it...

I want to go back!! Cave's Branch is an adventure lodge not a resort. Adventure is around every corner and I had a fantastic time. Three firsts...repelling down the Black Hole, trip to Guatemala to see the Mayan ruins of Tikal, and river cave tubing. There are options for everyone.
