You can get you'r own drinks behind the bar and just write it down in the list. The daughter (Coralita) makes sure she talks to every guest and...

We spent 5 nights there in early February 2017. The location was perfect with toucans and motmots coming into the bird feeder. In addition there was easy access to many bird watching and archaeological hotspots in the area. There are guides that work with Crystal Paradise that know the birds by sound and sight. We had a wonderful stay and...

Our small group spent four nights here on a seven day birding tour of the country led by Eric Tut. He is a very knowledgable and personable guide. We saw around 250 bird species and enjoyed our stay at Crystal Paradise very much. Eric's sister Carolita is the cook and she did an outstanding job of preparing delicious "Whole Food...

We loved our stay here. Bonus points go for beautiful grounds, low impact night time lighting, the fruit set out for birds and birders to enjoy, proximity to the river, the lending library, bird watching decks, bird/nature/excursion tours, and most of all for the local Belizean family that owns the place. There's wifi and phone service, hot water for the...

My family and I stayed here in January 2017, and had a wonderful time. We were put up in the house that is somewhat separated from the rest of the resort. The house is built with beautiful local wood, architecturally impressive, and full of large windows that looked out on the surrounding jungle. House needs a little TLC, but overall...

Crystal Paradise was our first stop on our Belize vacation as we wanted to get a taste for the 'jungle' side of Belize. We had booked our trip and accommodations very early in the year so had some time to look through all the activities that the lodge offered and Carla was very responsive via email to all our questions...

We came here for the new year to get away from the city. Weather was wonderful. 61F in the night. No air condition needed. Hard to get up in the morning with such great weather. Wonderful food from the cooks. Birds all around the property welcoming you every morning. Just 15 minutes away from San Ignacio. Will be back again.

I had a wonderful stay here in the summer of 2016. The hosts were very friendly and addressed any need that you had. The food was delicious! The rooms were very comfortable. The property is beautiful and is close to the ATM caves and other ancient sites. Highly recommend!
