When many people hear the word "jungle," they think of a scary assortment of dangerous animals and thick, impenetrable foliage that you have to hack your way through with a machete. But the jungle in Belize is much more than that, a pristine landscape of indescribable beauty, fragile orchids blooming amidst a kaleidoscope of tree frogs, colorful parrots winging their way through the branches, and troops of curious howler monkeys.
Visiting the jungle doesn't mean camping out in a primitive tent either. Jungle Lodges like Caves Branch Jungle Lodge are surrounded by wild, natural beauty but offer five-star luxurious accommodations complete with electric lights and fans, hot and cold running water, and gorgeously appointed tree houses with stunning views of the jungle.
More than half of Belize's mainland territory is composed of jungle and pristine rainforest, much of it protected wilderness. These important biodiverse nature reserves are home to an astonishing 4,000 different species of flowers, nearly 600 species of birds, and exotic animals like the timid tapir, the endangered Morelet's crocodile, and rare big cat species like jaguars, margays, and ocelots.
Instead of sitting on a beach in a boring, cookie cutter resort, spending your honeymoon in the jungle is the perfect way to enjoy fantastic adventures with your new spouse. Caves Branch Lodge was built by a Canadian adventurer who helped invent the now famous Belizean adventure activity called cave tubing where participants sail for miles down underground rivers aboard an inflatable inner tube.
The unspoiled Belize jungle is also home to unexpected surprises, whether that's the most magnificent waterfalls in Central America or mysterious ancient ruins built by the Maya more than 2,000 years ago. Perfect for bird watching and hiking, the jungle also offers more active thrills with activities like zip lining (sailing through the canopy on wires), exploring vast cave networks, or rappelling through the bottom of cliff into the infamous Black Hole Drop.
After a day of exploring nature, couples can return to Caves Branch Lodge to relax and enjoy romantic moments, sipping on champagne while savoring a gourmet dinner underneath the stars. Caves Branch Lodge tree houses include a soaker tub on the top level, the perfect place to watch a sunset with your beloved and enjoy the heady perfume from thousands of tropical flowers.
Caves Branch Lodge is located in the heart of the jungle and offers guests all-inclusive Belize honeymoon packages to enjoy all the natural beauty and splendor of Belize.
