My boyfriend and I spent a few days at Mariposa, from December 27th to January 1. We had the best time, a deep nature and Maya experience! The owner, Sharyn, had always been extremely efficient, accommodating and caring with us. She organized all the activities we had there and she took care of our next stop accommodation, in San Pedro, on the Ambergris Caye.
We enjoyed very much all the excursions in Cayo, like zip lining and caving, and in Guatemala, Tikal. Sharyn’s stuff guides are very nice and prepared.
I loved food at Mariposa, exquisite local specials and a lot of fruits and vegetables, tasty and healthy!
Sharyn made sure we have every day what was suitable for us and she was very accommodating in making possible changes. I personally love plantains (a green banana) and she made a “special sandwich” as a snack for me, with that and peanut butter, delish!
The cabanas are comfortable, well-groomed and charming. No noises, just jungle mysterious sounds.
In the Mariposa property there is also a bird watching tower, where sometimes Sharyn makes great sunset dinner parties. We had been the first people sleeping the night over there with sleeping bags…the New Years Eve night! So special, listening at the jungle night sounds and waking up with birds singing and flying over our heads. I will never forget that experience!!
