    Ek' Tun strikes a remarkable balance between a classic rustic Belize river lodge and a contemporary natural romantic retreat. The seclusion and exotic landscape of the 200 acre lodge are its primary selling points. The 2 electricity free cabins (note there is hot and drinkable...More

    Just returned from a week in Belize. The jungle is by far the better place to visit as compared to San Pedro. Ek'Tun is reached by a fairly long & very bumpy drive from San Ignacio, then a quick motor boat ride across the Macal...More

    I would say that staying at Ek' Tun is a once-in-a-lifetime experience if it weren't for the fact that we already can't wait to go back. We stayed at Ek' Tun for 5 nights on our honeymoon, and it was absolutely the most memorable, awe-inspiring,...More

    Hello, My husband and I are very interested in seeing if there is availability, but I cannot seem to find contact info to call or email. Any suggestions? Also, I wanted to see on a map where Ek' Tun is in relation to ruins and transportation. Does Ek' Tun offer help in arranging tours to the ruins? Many thanks, Jenna...new traveler to Belize
