First off I was afraid of the jungle and the potential creatures. I couldn't have been more wrong. This is one, if not the most relaxing and satisfying places I've ever visited. Ron and Al (the owners) were two of the best owners of any style resort. The cuisine was a fantastic mixture of local Belizean and international food. The...

Our family started out 2017 at McCaw Bank Jungle Lodge. Our ages are 54, 59, 20 and 22. McCaw Bank Jungle Lodge was every thing we hoped for and more. It is small and intimate, beautiful and so accommodating. Ron, the owner, is the most gracious host. He is so much fun to chat with. He truly cares and wanted...

We spent a week at Macaw Bank Jungle Lodge in December and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our host, Ron, was most helpful and responsive right from our first inquiry. On arriving Ron soon helped us plan our customized itinerary and set up all our guided tours and self-guided excursions. We enjoyed a perfect mix of relaxing on-site activities (birding and tubing),...

I recently visited Macaw Bank for an afternoon cocktail at a nice quiet location and this was just the spot. The staff and management were very friendly and the drinks and wine selection was delicious. We hiked down to the Macal River after a drink and that was stunningly beautiful as well. I'd highly recommend visiting here.

I just returned from our stay at the Macaw and it was incredible. I have traveled all over and the hospitality of Ron and his staff was first class. My 82 year old mother was with us and she had a terrible cough. Ron ran to the store and purchased 2 bottles of cough medicine. He went over and beyond....

If you love nature and all it has to offer this place is for you. The cabanas are simple, clean and comfortable. And yes they come with flushing toilets.

Had a great day doing yoga on the new platform. Lunch was excellent. The staff very attentive and of course Ron was the most gracious host. A short stay or an extended visit will not disappoint weather you are single, couple or family.

If you want to visit the jungle, I recommend the lodge owned by these two guys originally from Baltimore, Maryland USA! They bought the jungle property and cleared enough of the 50 acres of land to make cabins, restaurant, bar, and access to the river. It it truly a peaceful oasis! My favorite part of staying at the lodge was...
