Nestled between unspoiled rainforest and the banks of the Moho River in the undiscovered Toledo district, Cotton Tree Lodge provides a truly unique jungle experience. Guests principally stay on an all inclusive basis and this includes a wealth of daily excursions, including locally guided tours to Mayan villages, ancient ruins, waterfalls, and caves.

Activities available on the grounds include birding, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming, medicinal plant walks, or simply relaxing in a hammock. Being just fifteen miles from the Caribbean ocean means you are also close enough to enjoy snorkeling, diving, fishing, or sailing on a day trip.

For foodies, chocoholics, or anyone with a sweet tooth get in touch with us at AB about theCacao Crazy chocolate week itinerary, where eight days and seven nights are spent exploring organic cacao farms, learning about Fair Trade in Belize and making your very own chocolate bars from scratch.

Whilst there is a focus on sustainability, Cotton Tree offers all the amenities to keep guests comfortable. The eleven private cabanas are fully screened with thatched roofs, private bathrooms, ceiling fans, balconies, and hammocks. The Main Lodge houses the reception, gift shop, wireless internet access, and a fully-stocked bar. The restaurant serves Belizean and American favorites prepared with the freshest ingredients from local farmers and the on site organic garden.

Guests typically stay on an all inclusive basis to ensure you get the most out of your experience and this also offers the best value, however room only and full board room options are available. The all inclusive rates include:

  • Round trip transfers between Punta Gorda and the lodge (one way by boat, one way by road)
  • Accommodation in a private thatched cabana
  • Daily guided off-site tour options
  • Unlimited on-site activities
  • Three meals per day
  • Drinking water, soft drinks, and juices served with meals
