We stayed at Mariposa Jungle Lodge for five nights, celebrating my mom's 80th birthday. The perfect location and beautiful accommodations were only surpassed by the warm and wonderful people who work there. Sharyn (the owner) helped me book the ideal mix of tours for us to see and experience the ruins and the current culture.
We especially appreciated and enjoyed our guided ruins (Caracol and Xunantunich) and Barton Creek cave tours with Damian–an amazing tour guide who is extremely knowledgeable of Mayan history. Augusto took us on the Village Culture Tour. This is a must-do experience if you are interested in learning about the current Belizean culture and lifestyle. Five families welcomed us into their homes and shared their stories of business ownership, farming, and cooking.
We did not rent a car, and I'm so glad we didn't. We were escorted everywhere.
Everyone went out of their way to take care of us from the minute we were picked up until we were driven to the airport. Thank you to everyone at Mariposa for a spectacular and memorable jungle vacation!More
