This review is long overdue. Though we never stayed at the resort, and wish we had, this review is for the tours. I'm hesitant to call them "tours" since they are are more like adventures. My husband and I did both the Black Hole Drop and the Waterfall Cave, and each were classified as one of our top 5 lifetime...

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and could not believe this place when we got here. The photos cannot do it justice. We had a tree house and couldn't get enough of sitting in the large luxurious living room - with floor to ceiling screen windows overlooking the jungle canopy and mountains - and listening to the birds,...

As everyone else has said - an amazing place. The adventures were fun, safe and adventurous. Climbing the waterfall amazing! Guides were fun and professional. The tree-house was beautiful, clean and unique. The staff is fun, attentive and professional. But the food is worth an extra notice. Dinner was amazing! salads, homemade pasta, homemade bread, homemade cheese and yummy homemade...

Just an absolutely incredible place. My wife and I have traveled the world, and this may be our favorite place we've ever been. GROUNDS: Stunning. They have one of the largest botanical gardens in Belize on-site which have very helpful plaques explaining all the plants. The largest collection of orchids is in the gardens as well. Cabanas are scattered amongst...

I have now stayed in a cabana and tree house. Both have their individual merits, the tree house was large and had amazing views being up in the canopy. Our cabana was in the botanic garden which is quite remarkable, in the diversity and signage. Either way you can bird in the morning and enjoy the sounds of the jungle....

A lot of my reviews are positive because I study TripAdvisor carefully before traveling, and only pick the best. So, here is another 5-star review, but only because TA did not let me down, NOT because I'm easy to please. I'm not! IA's Caves Branch was spectacular. We picked a Canopy View Treehouse room. It was breath-taking! Room: Be prepared...

Every aspect of Caves Branch is outstanding: the rooms (we had a jungle treehouse), the adventures, the staff and service. The rooms are amazing; it's the first time ever that I want my home to be like our resort (our shower).

Caves Brach is a beautiful resort tucked in the rainforest. The large cabins had screen-only windows looking out over a meandering river. We were constantly seeing birds, lizards and monkeys from our cabin. The resort staff was always very friendly and the breakfast and dinner buffets were simple yet tasty. The resort is know for its adventure trips. We did...
