My husband and I spent six lovely days at Mariposa Lodge in August 2010. The place is everything the website promises and more. The owner was very helpful and communicative before we arrived and arranged a series of wonderful excursions for us helping us maximize our limited time. Her staff (she was not on-property during our stay) could not have been more gracious, accommodating or helpful. Our cabana was everything it should be and a wonderful place to come home to after a long day of caving or other excursions. And the meals were uniformly delicious and served in grand style. The sunset meal on the observation tower was a special treat!
Damien our Mariposa guide was unfailingly charming, informative and patient with us. Thanks to him we learned a great deal about the history, flora and fauna of not only the area around Mariposa but also of Belize. And we really enjoyed his informative tour of Caracol and the Belize Zoo. The guides provided for our excursions to the ATM and Crystal Caves and for our trip to Tikal (Guatemala) were also amazing. We highly recommend those trips to anyone visiting Belize. And, of course, our horseback riding and ziplining day (just down the road from Mariposa) were a blast as well.
In sum, if you’re looking for a warm atmosphere, good food, and lovely comfortable accommodations, Mariposa is the place for you!More
