Copal Tree Lodge

Summary of 95 verified reviews


Excellent accommodation. Great rooms and fantastic service. Awesome vibe.

Set in the verdant hills above the Caribbean coast of southern Belize, Copal Tree Lodge, formerly Belcampo, is a sanctuary from the everyday world. The definition of agritourism-chic: a Jungle Lodge, organic farm, and a 12,000-acre nature reserve, Copal Tree Lodge offers the best in local food and culture, active adventures, wildlife viewing, saltwater fly-fishing, and world-class hospitality.

At the heart of the resort is the Main Lodge with The Jungle Farm Restaurant, The Rum Bar, the Jungle Spa, lounge areas, a swimming pool, and observation decks that open to stunning vistas of the coast, the Maya Mountains and a seemingly endless pristine rain forest. The 16 individual, spacious suites are well appointed with plush beds, screened fresh-air verandas, and spa-style bathrooms with floor to ceiling tropical rain forest views.

Walk down 365 steps or take the private tram to the riverside dock where kayaks and canoes are available for use, or work out in the air-conditioned gym. From the dock you can embark on tranquil cruises on the jungle reaches of the Rio Grande, or guided snorkeling and fishing adventures on the Caribbean Sea.

Belcampo Belize's 12,000-acre nature reserve is bordered by the winding Rio Grande river. Its gentle current allows for easy paddling up or downstream.
