Your Full-Service Belize Boutique Jungle Resort
in the Heart of Maya Country
Mariposa Jungle Lodge is an intimate boutique resort offering “Adventure by Day and Comfort by Night” with a great location close to numerous amazing attractions
from Maya Ruins & Ceremonial Caves to high adventure zip lines, river tubing or jungle horseback riding to natural beauty so profound it may take your breath away. We are an authentic Belize eco-resort carved gently into the rainforest in the very heart of Maya country.
Mariposa’s full-service restaurant caters to your desire for fine-quality meals prepared by our chef, using fresh, local ingredients offering the tastes of Belizean, Mayan and Caribbean cuisines. Two fully stocked bars serve your favorite cocktails, wine and beer. We happily provide vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free meals.
The Main Lodge Building contains our full-service restaurant and fully stocked bar, air-conditioned travel library and lounge, game room, and gift shop. All furniture was built on-site by our talented staff including tables, chairs, cabinets, and bar. Walls are adorned with paintings and carvings by local artists. Guests like to gather here after dark and first thing in the morning before the day’s adventure.
Private cabañas offer well-appointed rooms, spacious bathroom with shower for two, private screened porch with chairs and hammock, free in-room WiFi, mini-bar and air conditioning to ensure your comfort.
Our L-shaped pool is enhanced by a Belizean slate waterfall, with depth ranging from 4’ to 5’, featuring built-in bar stools and ledges for reading and relaxation. Our Blue Morpho Cantina provides poolside snack and full bar service. Our hammock palapa offers comfortable respite from the sun.
Whether exploring the remains of the great Mayan Culture at superb Maya ruins, swimming in a natural waterfall pool, shopping at a local market, cooking with local Belizeans, listening to birds singing, horseback riding under the jungle canopy, river or cave tubing, canoeing in search of iguanas and tropical birds or ziplining under and over the dense jungle canopy, our experienced guides will ensure you have a diverse and wonderful adventure.
We offer the widest variety of Belize tours that you’ll find in the Cayo District of Belize.
We love to make night time special with poolside events now and then. Here is a short list of some of our recent poolside happenings:
- Gourmet Barbeques
- Maya Pibil Feast
- Annual New Year’s Eve Party – It’s Mariposa tradition to prepare a superb dinner, engage a local DJ, and host a party with dancing and surprise activities. Our only rule at Midnight: Please remove shoes before jumping into the pool!
- Wedding & Special Occasion Receptions – We can comfortably host a sit-down dinner for up to 80 on and around the pool deck and under the palapas, leaving the adjacent dance floor free for action.
Mariposa Jungle Lodge is committed to providing a great Belize jungle adventure for our guests in a safe, comfortable and environmentally-friendly manner, conserving our natural resources and operating with Eco-tourism principles in mind.
