Caves Branch was part of a two part stay in Belize through St. George's Caye resort. I ended up spending the first three days of my trip here and I honestly have to say it spoiled me for the rest of the trip. I stayed...More

I have to admit that I was hesitant in booking Cave's Branch. We are independent travellers and we rented a car to drive to the hotel. The majority of the other guests had booked the 'package' including room, meals, and tours. Most days we did...More

Hi, yes, there is one designated area for smokers at the lodge. It is located just outside the dining area about 15 short steps from the Guest Services desk in a little hide-a-way spot that even includes an ash tray and a relaxing bench. Just let your Guest Services staffer know when you check in and they will direct you to it.

Good morning staceywills,
Caves Branch is located approximately 90 minutes away from the international airport. The easiest way to get to the lodge is taking either a 15 minute flight into the city (municipal airport) which is around $55US pp or taking an hour boat ride from Caye Caulker to Belize City- cost is around $20US pp oneway.
WE can have a driver meet you in the city and Belize City to the lodge is $65US pp plus 12.5% tax. Some might consider that the cost of the shuttle is high, however if you get a taxi on your own, the cost is about the same but charged in Belize Dollars which would be around $130bz for one or two persons.
Getting a bus from Belize City is cheaper but takes you up to 3 hours sometimes to get all the way to the lodge and entails 2 different bus rides... If you have luggage, it is not as easy to travel on the bus given the bus change in Belmopan and getting off at our highway entrance and walking in with your bags. Hope this information is helpful!
