Cotton Tree Lodge
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.
