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. Buffet meals where every suite is assigned a different table...

Our jungle adventure was amazing! Each day we pushed ourselves to the limits physically and then were pampered by the fabulous staff at Caves Branch. The accommodations and buffets are wonderful and the choices of adventures are outstanding! If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind vacation, this is it!

We had a fantastic experience with Ian Andersons Caves Branch. Our accommodation was a canopy treehouse with a fabulous view and it was beautifully decorated. The meals are excellent and I liked the way we were rotated each night to sit with and meet new people. Each day we chose a different adventure like the famous ATM sacred cave tour,...

HI Glorfindel, It is truly wonderful to read through your exciting review and feel completely connected with your overall experience. While we must certainly apologize for the poorer then normal performance of the tour guide and the UN-replenished food items during mealtimes, as well as the not-so-soft pillows; we definitely appreciate the remarks and will work hard on correcting them...

We spend three nights at Caves Branch in a tree house. The tree house was absolutely wonderful. It was extremely clean, had tons of space, and just beautifully designed.

As they say, this is not for everyone. My 20 year old daughter told me we should have done this before the beach, not after. I agree wholeheartedly. The excursions can be strenuous and a rest on the bach with fishing or something else mixed in would go well after a visit here. Accomodations? Excellent. I can say that in...
