Mariposa was a delight from the minute we were picked up from the airport. Sharon and staff bent over backwards to accommodate our every need and make sure we had an excellent experience exploring the Cayo District. Perhaps the best measure of professionalism- they made it look easy. Food and cabins were excellent, by the time we left we felt... More

I did a lot of research before my trip to Belize. After a few days at San Pedro Island (which I would not bother with unless one enjoyed scuba/diving) we headed inland to the jungle! I am a planner and control freak so I basically had pre-arranged my entire itinerary before getting to Belize. I wrote in to the staff... More

Gracious owners Sharon and Jim and their accomplished staff made every effort to ensure we were all well taken care of. We had scheduled activities everyday, and no matter where we needed to be or how... More

Everything I have to say about this place is positive. My boyfriend & I recently stayed here for 6 nights and loved every minute of it. The landscape is beautiful and the cabanas are very charming and comfortable. I thought the porch-like room was a very nice touch. We spent some time there every night to talk about the adventure...
