Exactly as advertised, Mariposa Jungle Lodge provides Adventure by day and comfort by night. We travelled with our tweens for a jungle/beach vacation. We were 4 nights at mariposa. We stayed in the Iguana cabana. It was beautiful! Our transfers were seamless, thanks to Augusto. Augusto was also our tour guide for most of our excursions. He is incredibly knowledgeable....

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous vacation in Belize. We stayed at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge for 5 nights and couldn't have been happier. We are vegan and looking for places to accommodate our needs can be tricky. In addition, we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary so we wanted an extra special experience. Boy did...

My wife, 10-year-old daughter and I could not have been happier with our overall experience at Mariposa. It began with a prompt and friendly pickup by a driver/ guide, Augusto, who took us on two separate tours on our way to the Lodge. One of the tours was of the Belize Zoo and Augusto's knowledge of the unique animals and...

Their slogan "Adventure by day and comfort by night" is right on. We wanted adventure and we got it. At the end of the day we were treated to a clean, comfortable and modern cabana, great meals and a refreshing swimming pool. The gardens are beautiful. The cabanas are separated enough for ultimate privacy. The screened porch with a hammock...

Mariposa Jungle Lodge was a beautiful lodge tucked away in the jungle. It is designed so it is nestled within the environment. The owners and staff are wonderful and so friendly and accommodating. Our guides were very knowledgeable. We went on 2 excursions but would have gone on more if we had more time. We were there 3 nights but...

Thanks, Carolyn, for taking the time to post this review. You mentioned something I think is important for Belize vacation planners. Our 3-night package is very popular but many guests say exactly what you said. Another night or two would make the experience more complete. There is so much to do, see and experience in our area. I hope your...
