Cotton Tree Lodge

Ex Servicemen Rd.
Moho River
Punta Gorda, Belize
TEL: 501-670-0557

Belize discovered Chris Crowell, instead of vice versa, as the resort’s founder was drawn to the country after passing through in the late 1970’s. Almost thirty years, a sailing business, and the discovery of an enormous cotton tree later, the eco-lodge opened in 2007 and now has 100 acres with 11 cabanas. Boardwalks connect the cabanas, which range from the Standard to a 1,000-square-foot two-bedroom cabana. Thatched roofs, wooden floors, and Mayan-influenced linens fill the interiors of the elevated rooms, many of which have Moho river views. Meals are family style at the restaurant, which emphasizes locally-sourced ingredients.

Room to Book:

The 2-person, 300-square-foot Jungle Cabana was conceived for more adventurous guests, as it's located in the middle of the jungle, almost a quarter of a mile from the main resort grounds.

Insider Tip:

The resort can help chocolate-lovers arrange tours of cacao farms in the nearby villages of San Felipe and San Pedro Columbia.
