My friend and I were traveling through Belize for a few days and had a Waterfall Cave tour booked through Caves Branch. When we first arrived to the resort, we were met with the friendliest and most helpful staff of any place I have ever been. The tour itself was absolutely amazing. We were able to climb through caverns and...

Wow, I don't even know where to begin. This place is magical. When we first arrived at Caves Branch, after an extremely pleasant air conditioned ride in their very nice vans, we were blown away. The lodge, the pool, our room were all beautiful. The food we had at breakfast and dinner was out of this world good. Their chefs...

IAN ANDERSON CAVES BRANCH: We stayed at 3 different resorts while in Belize: Black Rock Lodge, Ian Anderson's Caves Branch and Coco Beach Resort and this one was our second favorite. Albeit by a VERY small margin because the other three were also exceptional. The only thing that made this resort 2nd by a small margin to Black Rock Lodge...

Dear Geissap from Key Largo, Florida. This is Ian Anderson writing.. I would like to say that I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at Caves Branch and from the comments you made, it actually appears that you considered Caves Branch and your experience to be a 5 star lodge with the exception of two items.

I came here with my 9 year old daughter. It was fantastic. You are out in the rainforest with tons of nature and wildlife. Staff was wonderful and food was very good. It is about 1.5 hours away from the Belize airport, They picked us up and brought us back no problem. We loved the outdoor shower and hammocks at...

I cannot say enough about the fabulous resort. We came for my mom's birthday and were completely blown away by the accommodations and the staff. Since we only stayed one night we did not do any tours, but I am sure we will next time. We did do the cheese tasting and it was most excellent. Since we live in...

My family and I spend last weekend at Cave's Branch Jungle Lodge -- the kids were skeptical about the location at first seeing that it wasn't on the coast, but boy were they presently surprised with our stay. The Lodge is nestled on hundred of acres of land that is almost untouched. We stayed in one of the tree-house rooms,...

We spent 3 days here in August with our three boys, aged 6, 9, and 11, and loved every minute. Our Canopy Treehouse was a hike (140 steps up), but it was so cool that we didn't mind the walk. The view was stunning, the beds were comfortable, and the kids loved the outdoor shower. The grounds were equally wonderful...

We just spent the first week of our honeymoon at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. It would take a small novel to write about all the excellent things about this place. The day trips are all fun, challenging and SO memorable. We stayed in one of the luxury tree houses, and now want to eventually live in one; amazing views, comfortable...

So if you don't know, the title is the song from the Blue Man Group and I'll get to it in a minute... Cave's Branch was Great!!! First Pro is that the entrance is right off the main road, so unlike some of the other lodges, you don't have to travel 20 to 30 minutes for a 5 mile trip...
