The Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is centered on the Caves Branch Estate in the heart of the Belizean jungle. We are not sanitized from the jungle .. we are a part of it. All our unique accommodations allow you to experience the sights and sounds of the surrounding jungle and nearby river, while maintaining our original object of each traveler experiencing the rugged beauty and natural symphony of the nature that surrounds us.
Our newest rooms at Caves Branch are built on a hillside overlooking the Caves Branch River. They are set among the trees and raised up to 20 feet off the ground providing a perfect perch to look down at the river below.
With the units being over 800 square feet, there is lots of space to spread out. They are split level with a raised bedroom set back behind a screened in living area. The bedroom has a king size bed and the living area has a futon pullout sofa. There is a spacious indoor bathroom with a full shower, plus an additional outdoor shower, both with hot water and outside balcony.
The rooms are finished with natural materials, a welcoming blend of stone, wood and marble. Decorations, furniture and artwork are all from local and regional sources. The finishing, furnishings and open air design provide for a rustic feel, luxurious look and comfortable space to relax in after a day's adventure.

Each suite has a furnished front patio, a living room with wicker furniture and a futon double bed, indoor washroom with hot and cold running water, shower and toilet, powerful ceiling fans, and a raised bedroom with a queen-size bed.
The entire suite is surrounded by screened picture windows that allow every breeze and jungle sound to float into the cabana to you. Oil lamps for lighting provide that romantic glow.
