Cotton Tree Lodge in Punta Gorda, Belize

There are few places on the planet where nature's greatest achievements on land and water come together to create paradise - and even fewer that also happen to be home to a luxurious lodge. Cotton Tree Lodge in brilliant Belize is just such a rarity. Nestled within the Belizean rainforest on the banks of the Moho River, the environmentally-friendly Lodge sits at the base of a towering cotton tree. A perfectly secluded spot in the heart of the rainforest, the Lodge gives you a chance to immerse yourself in a tropical dream.

Individual cabanas with thatched roofs are surrounded by the fig trees. Enjoy your view of the river from the comfort of a hammock swinging on your own private veranda. At night take in the calls of exotic birds, the gentle hum of the river on its journey to the sea, and the roar of monkeys in the distance, as you drift off in your soft bed. Take trips guided by knowledgeable staff into the rainforest where you can explore caves, myriad flora and fauna, Mayan ruins and the Mojo River itself. The Lodge can arrange for scuba diving excursions in collaboration with Reef Conservation International in Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve. At the end of each day of adventure, join other Lodge guests in a festive organic Belizean meal on the main deck, and watch the sun set into the trees.

We just brought a group of 7 people to Cotton Tree for 5 nights and had the most incredible time there. We chose Cotton Tree because of the beautiful grounds and how remote and peaceful it is. The land here has an incredible energy that is so healing and allowed for our participants to disconnect from their lives back home and reconnect to themselves. All of the food was amazing (farm to table - yes!), the staff were incredible, and the rope swing was fun as always. We will be bringing groups back here in the future and can't recommend it enough from a group leader perspective!

Highly recommend this place. Great staff, good variety of activities offered. Wonderful food. Outstanding tour guides. Belize is a beautiful country filled with friendly people. The staff at Cotton Tree Lodge go out if their way to male sure you have a good experience. Many of the tour guides are on staff at the lodge and after a toir, take you to their homes for a meal.

I have so many good things to say about Cotton Tree Lodge. This place is incredible. There is something very special about the location and the way in which it's designed to be part of the natural surroundings. The level of relaxation and de-stress that is possible here is unparalleled. I've stayed in a lot of places in Belize, and this is one of my favorites. It is special because of its very unique and peaceful location. Watching iguanas jump from the trees into the rivers, listening to the howler monkeys wake me up in the morning, the song of the birds surrounding us in every direction, the friendly faces of the incredibly helpful staff, and the total immersion into a serene jungle setting. I love this place and will continue to come back.

Beautiful place, quiet and amazing. Better still are the people there. They greet you genuinely and truly care how you are doing and if you have all you need. The food is grown there and so delicious! Best place to slow down. :)

Cotton Tree Lodge is the perfect place to escape the busy demands of life and take some time for yourself or connect deeper with family or travel friends. The staff are so friendly and attentive, always greeting you with a smile and helpful service. The food is fresh from their organic garden and every meal is tasty, filling and unique. The grounds have plenty to do: a walk around the jungle, an afternoon search for howler monkeys high in the trees, a dip in the river, or some early morning yoga led by the wonderful Parama who also gives amazing massages! It is worth the drive from Punta Gorda. Plan a trip to Ixcacoa just up the road for a lesson in chocolate making and the best chocolate you'll ever devour!
