My family really enjoyed Blancaneaux Lodge. I was worried that the kids (ages 8 and 10) would be bored, but they were not. We had planned an excursion to one of the Mayan Ruins, but had to cancel due to rain, we also planned to ride horses to the waterfall, also canceled due to pouring rain. Despite the weather we had a good time, the food was good, the 'Jaguar Juice' was great. The waterfall in front of the resort is man made, but who cares, it's still beautiful.
Have your driver from San Ignacio stop at a store before you get on the road, take some snacks and treats. The kitchen closes at nine and the mini bar is pricey (no surprise there!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the early 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola visited Belize, immediately fell in love with the location, and purchased the abandoned Blancaneaux Lodge. For more than a decade the resort was used as a family retreat before Francis opened his tropical paradise to the public in 1993. Tucked away in a pocket of the Maya Mountains, Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room luxury resort where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy. Its remote mountain setting makes it a perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. ... more less
