Perfect! – “Don’t be deterred by the long, bumpy road to get here. We stayed 3 nights in March and it was our favorite lodge on our 10 day trip. Landscape, room, staff, food–every detail was perfect. We had the Hopkins junior suite, which is the cabana best situated, private and overlooking the waterfalls. The sound of the falls lulled us to sleep every night. The cabana is large, clean and has a screened porch with chairs and a hammock. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner every night on the wrap around porch of the dining room–watching birds in the morning, looking at stars at night. We did their trip to Caracol–a long day, but well worth it. Also enjoyed the nature trail down to the falls and relaxing in the hammocks next to the river. Appreciated Javier’s advice and tips about the border crossing into Guatemala. We’d recommend without hesitation”.

Amazing jungle lodge!!! – “My family of 4 spent 5 nights in the Riverside Villa. I wouldn’t change a thing! Five Sister’s staff, accommodations, and food were absolutely TOP SHELF. If you decide to go, keep in mind that you are MILES out in the jungle and that every item has to be hauled for an hour down torturous, rough roads. Don’t go expecting the Ritz; but DO go. Yes, it’s hot. No, there is no air conditioning. Yes, there are lots of bugs, spiders, mosquitoes, etc. It’s worth it! The remote location is a perfect launchpad for: Caracol, 1000ft Falls, Rios on Pools, Rio Frio Cave, Big Rock, Barton Creek Cave, San Ignacio, Xunantunich, and exploring the Pine Mountain Ridge. Every day we explored far and wide. We always anticipated our return to the cool creek, relaxing in a hammock under the ceiling fans, shower, and a fantastic dinner”.

Romantic, exotic…luxury in the rainforest!!! – “This lodge is absolutely No.1!!! Not only the nice and exotic accommodation in the rainforest but even very friendly staff and very good restaurant. The restaurant is highlight, one of the best!!! Make sure you have enough time to get to the lodge (is 1.5heures from the main road). But it is on the half way to Caracol. Only 1.5 hours from the lodge to get to Caracol. The waterfall you can see directly from the lodge is lovely. To swim there in the middle of nowhere is just wow!!! 5 sister lodge is an unforgettable experience!!!!!”
