It's not often (actually never before) that I talk more about a place I stay than the actual destination but I loved this place! We had a few weather related issues that delayed us but they were really accommodating to ensure we could move our reservation back so we wouldn't miss much of our stay. It is evident this is...

First off, I did not stay at this lodge but it did look really nice, it's right on the river. I did however take three tours with them. We did two caving tours, some zip lining and made a trip to the zoo. All activities were top notch. Our guides, Patrick, Esperanza and Julio were really great. They were knowledgeable...

My wife and I went there for some adventure and we had fun. The guides and staff were great but the place is a bit pricey in my opinion for the off season. They did upgrade us to a tree house free of charge on the third night since it was empty during that part of the season. That was...

This was my first trip out of the states and I was by myself - but I didn't feel alone the entire trip! This place is amazing, the staff are so friendly and helpful - I can't say enough good things about Caves Branch! The waterfall tour was the best thing I have ever done in my life, I would...

We didn't stay here ( it was way too expensive and a little to Americanized for our tastes) but we did book a waterfall cave expedition with them and two transfers. We booked the transfers because they promised not only to get us there from our hotel in time for the tour but to then get us to the water...

I wasn't really sure what to expect when we arrived but was most pleasantly surprised. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the botanical gardens are a must see. The staff is so attentive and nice. The food is really delicious; breakfast awesome. It's a jungle experience not to be missed and I hope to return one day to complete the...

Cave's Branch Lodge is not for the traveler looking for ultra luxurious accommodations and drinks with umbrella's in them. That being said it is the best place to stay on the Belize mainland for adventure seekers. The rooms are very nice and maintained excellently the staff will rival those which you might find in a 5 star hotel, everyone is...

Although our stay at Caves Branch was a short stay, my family and I had a wonderful time. The staff went beyond my expectations and treated us so nicely, especially my 6 month old daughter, Paris. The food was amazing, i think i gain some weight while I was there. Lol. The Black Hole Drop is a very scary but...

The reviews on this site are not exaggerated at all.
