There is no better way to visit the jungle of Central America than to have the Caves Branch staff guide you through the day, and then look after you at your meals. Retire to the opulent rooms in the tree tops - it's just incredible!

We stayed in the canopy treehouse for a week. Lets start with the room. Everything you need and nothing you don't. Views, nature, comfort, and the company you bring. Outdoor shower is amazing, and you may even have a monkey visiting in the the trees above. Pre-breakfast coffee, muffins, and freshly squeezed OJ brought up to the treehouse promptly at...

Caves Branch was AMAZING! From the people, to the food, to the adventures, Caves Branch offered nothing but the best all around. We went in February, and the weather was great, not too hot, and the bugs were at a minimum. This is the Jungle - so do be prepared with bug spray, and come equipped with at least 2...

We had the pleasure of spending the night at Ian's incredible Jungle Lodge. I heard that it was good - but never expected it to be sooo great. We spent the night in one of the "Canopy Tree-house"; well worth the climb up - all 178 steps. The accommodations were spacious and well thought out. Cozy, comfortable and "jungle chic"....

We arrived via the local bus (which was very easy to navigate due to the schedules being printed in English) and were dropped at the side of the Hummingbird Highway at the long entrance to IACB. We had backpacks so the 1 km hike or so to the reception was no problem. If I had luggage it would have been...

Great place to stay, we were in a jungle suite and the screened windows were totally open to the jungle with no shade or blinds or curtains in the bedroom, a bit disconcerting at night but when we were there the moon was out so the view from our bedroom was what I would call 'eerily magical.'

As my other review states for The Sleeping Giant, a business associate made me a reservation there, and here at Ian Anderson's for two nights each. This place was full of charm and attention to detail but a different experience all together. The rooms do not have glass windows but screens. My room was literally a "mountaintop experience".

HI BMcElhaney2350, We LOVED your review and thank you so much... we had to giggle thinking about the music choices you ticked off but in reality, the music sorta makes you take a step back in time and comments from many of our guests take the same tone "wow, I haven't hear that song in years"...makes a great conversation starter!...
