Mountain Pine Ridge (The Highlands, Belize)
The main building houses the restaurant, bar and sitting areas and there are pretty gardens. The Lodge is owned by Francis Ford Coppola whose influence is evident throughout.
Excursions (at extra cost) include canoeing into local caves (one of which, Barton Creek, is 3km long), trips into the Mountain Pine Ridge (waterfalls, caves and Nature trails), the Maya site of Caracol and riding.
The lodge has garden cabins, river view cabins and a few villas nestled into the slopes above a tumbling stream. All rooms are very tastefully designed and stylishly decorated.
