After a part of our trip fell through, we went looking for a new place to settle, and Mariposa sounded like a great option. We emailed Sharyn, the owner, and she returned our correspondence immediately to let us know there was room for us the very next day. We stayed a total of 4 wonderful nights in the wonderful lodge in the middle of the jungle, and enjoyed amazing homemade breakfasts and dinners that were tailored to our specific interests and food preferences. Sharyn and the staff did a wonderful job helping me eat amazing and healthy meals despite my food restrictions, and they even let me watch their fabulous cook Selma make freshly-made tortillas as well as informing me how to make the traditional belizian staples we ate later that evening. While the lodge is fairly far from attractions, the staff is more than happy to help you with transportation. The cabanas are incredibly clean and the large beds come equipped with mosquito nets, though there are surprisingly few bugs where they are in the jungle. The price is right in the middle between bare-bones and opulent, but delivers fabulous ammenities with beautiful bathrooms, a cute sitting room, and a comfortable lodge with internet, lots of books to read, and a larger TV than in my own home! Also lots of options for affordable sights and tours. They were putting in a pool when we were there that should be ready by the new year. If you want a get-a-way with beautiful scenery, this is the place!
