mariposa jungle lodge
We are honoured to introduce ourselves as new owners of Mariposa Jungle Lodge! We are father and daughter Paul & Aline of Montreal, Canada and we have been in the hospitality industry in Belize for the last 13 years. We are very passionate about the history, culture, people, music and food of the country and we love sharing space with people from all over the world!
Prior to Mariposa, we owned and operated Wild Orchid in Placencia, but something was missing… Both my father and I wanted to do more than host people. We wanted to help people. We immediately fell in love with the vibrancy and energy of Mariposa. With its kind and attentive staff, luxury cabanas, and Chef Norma’s healing and replenishing culinary creations, we instantly knew this was the perfect place for us (and others) to live, love, learn, grow and heal.
We are deeply committed to sharing our values of love, acceptance, peace, and compassion in all aspects of our resort, and are well on our way to becoming a leader in sustainable tourism. We are dedicated to protecting our environment, and helping people find optimal health with the benefits of yoga, meditation, rest, and plant-based wholesome foods.
The practice of Yoga has transformed our lives. We wish to share this practice and our little piece of paradise so that others can have transformative experiences as well. We just built a breathtaking yoga deck under the lush jungle canopy, as well as a newly expanded spa for our world-class Mayan massages. We are opening our doors to yoga teachers, leaders in health and fitness, and other conscious groups who would like to host retreats, seminars, and events at our beautiful resort.
Paradise exists – the only thing missing from here is you!
We look forward to welcoming you, Paul & Aline Habib
