Certificate of Excellence
Belize at its finest! Nestled on a steep bank of the beautiful Macal River, eco-friendly Mystic River Resort offers the best of all worlds to those who travel to Belize. In this oasis of privacy, serenity and rejuvenation, there are no crowds, just the soothing sound of birds, rustling trees, soft breezes and breath-taking views. We are a full-service Jungle Resort with an open-air restaurant, bar, spa, splash pool, yoga deck, adventure desk, luxurious accommodations with studios, one bedroom, and two bedroom suites – some featuring private plunge pools and outdoor showers! All our units offer king size beds, fireplace and private patio along with majestic views of the rain-forest and the river. Mystic River Resort, is located 7 miles from the twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena, surrounded by incredible serene wilderness – it is the best place to find the perfect something – or nothing – to do. We look forward to welcoming you- at the Mystic River Resort. Your MMR Team
