Surrounded by rain forest, Copal Tree Lodge is a luxurious eco-lodge constructed on land first cultivated by the Mayans thousands of years ago. The resort is committed to preserving the local environment, using fallen trees for building, growing native crops on its organic farm and building a global marketplace for local products.

This intimate resort has only 16 guest suites. Accommodations do not have televisions but are outfitted with free Wi-Fi, private verandas and spacious bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling jungle views. Guests can choose between suites in the canopy or surrounded by the jungle. Families and groups traveling together can spread out in the three-bedroom villa, which sleeps six and features a full kitchen, two bathrooms, two screened-in porches and private parking.

More than 70% of the food served to guests is produced on the resort’s 3,000-acre sustainable farm, including organically grown sugar cane, cacao and coffee. The Jungle Farm Restaurant offers three meals a day made with local ingredients and menus influenced by Mayan, East Indian, Creole and Caribbean cultures. Cocktails made from exotic fruit juices and Belizean liquor are served at the Rum Bar, where guests are entertained with books, magazines, games and free Wi-Fi. 

Guests have complimentary access to the hotel’s kayaks, mountain bikes and fitness center. Horseback trail rides and sunset cruises are available for an additional fee. The concierge can also arrange day trips to nearby waterfalls, Mayan ruins and the Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world. Guests can cruise and snorkel with the hotel’s chef before sitting down to a freshly-caught lunch on deck. The family-friendly property also offers a petting zoo, chocolate-making classes and zip-lining in the jungle canopy for guests of all ages.
