We went to this jungle lodge and adventure outfitter with our adult (25+) year old kids. We loved everything about it. Food, activities, accommodations, transfers, staff...just everything. We travel quite a bit but this was our first adventure type vacation. We are now on the hunt for the next place to vacation and try new and adventurous activities. It is...

I first discovered Caves Branch back in ~1998 when it was very small and rustic. Ian was a fixture there, and we had just missed the pet monkey that he used to have there (good stories, though). My roommate and I had plenty of money and loved to scuba dive and travel so we set up a trip to Belize....

Nice accommodations in the jungle. Be sure that's what you want--it's not a resort, but has many of the amenities of a resort. The best part is the EXCELLENT staff. Everyone from the drivers to the front desk to the kitchen and of course the adventure guides bent over backwards to be helpful. We did the Black Hole and Cave...

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this wonderful place the end of June. The people that work there are amazingly friendly, from Rene who got us checked in to the chef who shared his knowledge of certain techniques with me. We had a Groupon for 5 nights in a bungalow but Carmen put us into a tree house...

Wow! Defiantly stay in a treehouse. We did and it was an amazing experience. The cave tubing and Mayan temples were very educational and fun with Abel as our guide. He gave us lots of information about the Mayan culture and was very knowledgable about the wildlife. Especially the birds. Super nice guy. Every person on the staff made us...

My husband and two children and I spent three nights the last week of May at Caves Branch. What a wonderful experience! We opted for a bungalow since we were only spending three nights before heading to Ambergris Caye. We had plenty of room for the four of us..especially since little time was spent in the room. We did visit...

The rooms are beautiful. It's great to hear the sounds of the jungle at night. The staff is amazing. They are friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. The food was delicious. The seating at dinner is assigned, but it's fun to sit with new people each night. The tours also went above and beyond my expectations. We went to the ATM cave,...

You will not regret staying at Caves Branch! At least that's how my group felt when it was all said and done. The service was honestly the best I've ever had. From the moment we got there til the day we left. Carmen was there every step of the way and made sure our stay was one we'd never forget!...

We (including our 2 teenagers) spent 4 nights at Caves Branch before going to the beach and wish we had stayed longer. The place is an incredible experience. Everyone who worked there was as nice and helpful as could be. We loved the rooms - we stayed in both a 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom treehouse during our stay. The...

This is a very special place. The accomodations are beautiful, at least our tree house suite was. The walls are screens so you wake up to the amazing bird sounds of the jungle. The staff is exceptional. Professional and charming. There is a beautiful pool area surrounded by incredible tropical flowers. Then there are the excursions. It is truly perfect...
