I'm the author of archaeological novels. What better place for a base in the jungle than Mystic River Resort? It's close to a lot of major ruins in Belize and Guatemala and the seasoned, knowledgable guides are the best I've found. Tom and Nadege Thomas are masters at providing five-star service in a quiet environment. You can sit on the...

We were recently at Mystic River Resort for an extended stay with our total family and we all had a most wonderful time. I would definitely recommend this fine jungle resort to others. The surroundings, cabin locations, cabin styling were excellent thanks to Thomas's fine work. There was a safe in each cabin, a large shower, no tub, our cabin...

The property is very private and peaceful, situated above the river with relaxing views of the water. The staff is friendly, efficient, and accommodating, and genuinely appear to appreciate that you are there. It's a well-run operation. There is a bar and restaurant, both open-air and full-service, with Wifi. The food is excellent, and some of it is grown on-site...

My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful stay at Mystic River. The location is perfect- right along the river in the heart of the jungle. Everything was incredible from the wine and cheese tastings (you must try the homemade cheeses), to the homemade soaps, to the sounds of the jungle. The owners and staff were so welcoming and...

The resort is very peaceful and beautiful, situated along the Macal River in the jungle. Nadege and Tom were wonderful hosts and had many stories to tell. I highly recommend sitting down with them to hear how the resort came about. The staff in the restaurant and bar area make sure to know your names and make sure you are...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I have wonderful memories until the next time we visit.

Mystic River Resort is one of a class of jungle relaxation that you will not find anywhere else in Belize. The idea of sitting in front of the mystic river in the evening sipping your favorite cocktail is so relaxing. Later on in the evening the Egrets fly by in a V shaped formation back to where they come from,...
