Adventure is what Caves Branch Jungle Lodge was built on and Adventure is still what Caves Branch is all about. But over the years, the Caves Branch jungle lodge has evolved from extremely rustic Jungle River Camp with outhouses and bathing in the river to our most recent 5 Star Luxury Tree Houses with roof top decks and hot tubs to relax under the stars above.
All accommodations allow you to experience the sights and sounds of the surrounding jungle and nearby river, while maintaining our original objective of each traveler experiencing the rugged beauty and natural symphony of the nature that surrounds them.
The lodge is not sanitized from the jungle; it’s part of it. Surrounded by wildlife, Caves Branch Jungle Lodge offer various types of accommodations from cabanas for travelers on a budget to luxurious tree houses overlooking the Caves Branch river.
While on site guests can enjoy our new swimming pool and hot tub situated next to the main lodge building and swimming in the Caves Branch River, depending on the season.
All guests are invited to take advantage of the complimentary tours of our onsite Botanical Garden. Guided tours are available from 9am to 4pm daily and you are more than welcome to go through the garden and not only enjoy the marked plants/ foliage, but learn on your own and enjoy the lovely flowers that bloom and add color to our rainforest surroundings.
In the mornings, guests can enjoy hiking trips where avid bird watchers can identify as many as 165 species of birds along our 1 km entrance that passes through 3 distinctive bird habitats. Butterflies and dragonflies fill the canopy during the day and after dark, the sounds of the night come alive.

There are five Belize bungalows set under the canopy and within the natural gardens of the lodge. These are fully screened to keep the bugs out but let the essence of the jungle in.
