Although not a resort, Caves Branch Jungle Lodge specializes in organizing adventure tours of the surrounding nature. Guests can enjoy horseback treks through the jungle, bird watching expeditions, trips to ancient Maya cities, hiking and rappelling, and of course the Caves Branch famous- cave tubing. Developed by Ian Anderson- the founder and owner of Caves Branch Jungle Lodge, cave tubing is a unique experience that involves floating down vast underground rivers on an inflatable inner tube.
For adventurers looking for more extreme experience, Caves Branch Lodge offers night treks of the jungle in order to see the approximately 80% of wildlife that is only active at nighttime, overnight stays in nearby caves, and the popular Jungle Quest Expedition, a four-day, three-night experience where guests must rely on just a machete and bush skills in order to survive.
Although Caves Branch Lodge specializes in fun and exciting adventure expeditions, guests are treated to a truly five-star experience while on the property. There are cheese tastings regularly held in the botanical gardens, and the lodge’s treehouse suites offer guests a unique opportunity to experience nature while enjoying all the modern comforts. With hot and cold running water and beautiful views of the surrounding jungle canopy, the Treehouses at Caves Branch Lodge are lovingly furnished with locally sourced marble and hardwood furniture.

Caves Branch house specialty drinks, the “Cave Wreck”, “Cave Colada” and the “Panty Ripper” are renowned throughout Belize. The bar is also stocked with the world famous Belize Belikin Beer and a full range of spirits.
While on site guests can enjoy one of two beautiful swimming pool and hot tub and/or swimming in the Caves Branch River, depending on the season. This is one of the more open areas at Caves Branch and offers guests the opportunity to relax and get some sun surrounded by lush and colorful tropical landscaping.
The upper pool and hot tub are for lounging while the lower pool is set aside more for swimming. Generally quiet during the day, it is a great time to rest, relax and read while sharing the pool area with a variety of bird life. Around 3:00 pm the pool area can fill up, particularly the hot tub and becomes the social center for our guests to exchange stories while rejuvenating their bodies, sometimes mending sore muscles not often enough used at home.
