Mariposa offers an authentic Belize experience. The owners and staff are honest and good people. You can expect a personal touch to everything they do. The facilities are quite comfortable and modern, and the food is tasty, providing a nice place to relax between visiting all the great places of interest in the area. There's plenty to do including caves,...

We agree with all the five star reviews - the owners are knowledgeable and very helpful, making it easy to see the key places of interest. All the drivers and guides associated with the lodge are excellent. Make sure to see Caracol and do the ATM cave. We'd come back again and stay there to see several sites that we...

Thanks for your kind review. I agree with your recommendation. Caracol and ATM are my favorite and most important visitor destinations in our Cayo District. I hope you can return to see more.

My best friend and I spent 3 nights at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge. They had an overbooking on Expedia so we were upgraded to the biggest hut right when we got there! The loge grounds are beautiful. We spent a few hours on one of the days taking the hike through the jungle that leaves right from the lodge. We...

I love your caption and I thank you for it, as well as the rest of your great review. I know you mean it because we've already heard from a relative who wants to visit based on your recommendation.

Mariposa Jungle Lodge is really getting away from it all. The facilities I don't think are meant for the vacationer who wants to relax by the pool. It is a comfortable place to come to after a day of exploring. Sharyn, the owner, was great about scheduling our trips. We hiked inside (and swam) a Mayan cave, visited an ancient...

I'm glad your family enjoyed some of the highlights of our Cayo District, as well as family time together. We bow to reality and offer wifi in cabanas and throughout the resort but we draw the line at television and intentionally choose not to have it. We look forward to more paved roads and do our best to offer creature...

Can't say enough nice things about Mariposa Jungle Lodge and their staff. Food was great. Service was great. Guides were wonderful. The lodge booked and handled all of our trips to ATM cave, Caracol, Rio Frio Caves, the falls, Xunantunich and Cahal Peche, horseback riding, Tikal, and zip lining. We were very happy with the prices too, a bargain for...

Excellent service from the moment we booked the room. The owner emailed with a welcome message and questions about food preferences for the dining package. Then offered helpful advice about the tours and booked them for us. Each room is an individual bungalow, nicely appointed and well maintained; set in a garden with a private screened in deck looking out...

We stayed in October, the slow season. Because of that, during the week we stayed we only saw other people on 2 of the days. The grounds were amazing. They have 6 cabanas available.

Thanks for your detailed review. It's rewarding to see some of our wonderful staff appreciated by name. You clearly have an eye for detail so I'm relieved we pleased you. Yes, some of the roads are awful but they are being paved, little by little. Aside from reminding our government representatives that our guests would be happier with pavement, it's...
