Cottage Country

Western Belize is known as "Cayo", and throughout this region there are innumerable small lodges tucked away in the jungle. There is a myriad of choice, and in fact if you visit our Belize Jungle Lodges map you can see for yourself just how many there are. Our favorites are listed on our Things to Do in Belize web page.

 

Sample rates: Chaa Creek is arguably the #1 jungle lodge in Belize (pictured at right). Cottages range from $265 - $615/night and include breakfast, guided tours of their Natural History Centre and Butterfly Farm, access to Ruta Maya Trail System, canoeing on the Macal River, a guided early morning bird walk and interpretive tour of their Maya Medicinal Plant Trail, and free wifi.

Wild South

The least visited part of Belize is in many ways the best. The entire southern region of Belize, located near the beautiful town of Punta Gorda (locally known as "PG", pictured at left) is open for exploration. There are jungles and beaches and islands near-by, you can't go wrong. Visit our Things to Do in Belize web page to see our lodging recommendations. There are excellent budget and luxury accommodations available.

 

Sample rates: The best deal in PG is the Suncreek Lodge, which also offers fantastic caving tours. Rates there start at $40/night (!) for a simple cabana for two.
