The Cotton Tree Lodge was everything we were expecting in a lush jungle setting and then much, much more. The entire staff headed by Chris and Gloria were terrific and made us feel part of their family. The meals were delicious including lunches that were usually packed and taken on our daily excursions. Planned activities were exciting, educational, and staffed by local people who know and appreciate the delicate ecosystems of the jungle. Their website gives you a sense of how nice it is to visit there. However, be prepared for something wonderful that cannot be described by words and pictures.
The facility is made up of a main lodge and a number of individual cabanas, each raised above the ground and very comfortable. Several of the cabanas are situated next to the Moho River, although all are very private and make you feel part of the jungle surrounding you. At night and early morning you hear the calls of countless birds and often the howling of the howler monkeys.
Visiting the Lodge will allow you to learn and absorb the magnificence of the jungle, enjoy the ambiance of very good people, and relax to the point of forgetting what day it is -- you will be on Belizien time.
Our only sadness was the day of departure when we realized that we wanted to spend another week there. We will definitely be making plans to return to the Cotton Tree Lodge within the next year or two.
