Discover The Best Ecotourism in Belize

Let us be your guide to the culture, warmth, and beauty of southern Belize.  We are a jungle eco-resort situated on 100 acres along the banks of the Moho River in the foothills of the Maya Mountains. Explore the rainforest, rivers, reefs, and ruins and immerse yourself in local life and forge new relationships. Our tours take you chocolate making with a Mayan cacao farmer and his family, swimming through wet caves to an underground waterfall,  and exploring ruins of the ancient Maya. We will show you the real Belize.

Activities available at the lodge include birding, kayaking, swimming, medicinal plant walks, yoga, massage or simply relaxing in a hammock and enjoying our incredible farm-to-table foods in a jungle paradise. We are only eight miles from the Caribbean – close enough to enjoy snorkeling, diving, or fishing on one of our day trips.

  •   Our stay at Cotton Tree Lodge has been an amazing experience. Valerie and her staff are all friendly and accommodating, and Blue’s virgin Chocolate Coladas were a favorite amongst our teens. Pop took us cave swimming at Blue Creek and taught us a bit about Mayan culture. Armando’s organic garden is amazing: the calaloo was delicious. And we had a blast sharing meals and swims off the sinking dock in the Moho River with new friends! The beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water for showers, plenty of bottled water for drinking...we would definitely stay at Cotton Tree for a jungle adventure again in the future!
