We had a fine time in the Belizean jungle and enjoyed our stay at Mariposa very much.
We stayed in Jaguar, went on great trips, and ate delicious food. Both breakfasts and dinners were enjoyable, and it was fun to try different foods than what we usually have at home. Good variety and taste sensations. Staff was friendly and all you could ask for.
Our trips to explore were good. The small ones were just as good as the longer ones. We enjoyed the zoo very much and liked how all was related to loving the animals and the environment. The Howler Monkey Sanctuary was amazing as we got to stand close to a mama and her baby. At the butterfly farm we had butterflies perch on us.
We went to Barton Creek Cave where you relax in a canoe and see incredible sights, San Ignacio with Xunantnich where it is nice to be around locals and to see such amazing ruins, and ATM where you can experience beauty and terror at the same time. All were excellent with the ATM trip being most memorable with Gliss as an incredible guide. I told him taking us was like taking his parents through the cave.
The staff is wonderful here, personable, kind, flexible, knowledgeable, and fun. We highly recommend Mariposa.
