Best bird watching in Southern Belize!
We spent 4 nights earlier this month at the Copal Tree Lodge. The food was top notch and the venue was outstanding. However, our 3 days birding with Emmanuel Chan exceeded all of the above. My wife (an avid birder) identified 126 different species during our visit, under “Chan’s” expert guidance. We are already looking forward to

A great place to relax and enjoy the jungle
My wife and I spent 6 nights at the lodge and it was amazing; We had looked at a lot of pictures and read a lot of reviews before going, but none of them captured how great of a place it really was.

Amazing Stay
The most amazing staff around. Food was great and they use only the freshest ingredients. They have the best bartender I have ever met or had a drink made by. He will make you a custom drink, you just have to tell him what flavors you like.

Paradise in the Jungle
I can’t say enough great things about this resort. All of the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Some of the guides have been working there for 10+ years and are so knowledgeable about the farm and property. The Resort really allows you to immerse yourself in the local culture, which was one of our favorite parts.

Amazing jungle experience!
This was our 4th trip to Belize – we love it! – but first to the Punta Gorda area. The Copal Tree Lodge was fantastic. Wonderful service, stunning location, fantastic food and very comfortable accommodations. You really did feel like living in the jungle – awakened by the sound of howler monkeys. The birds were also amazing.

If you want to “get away” and still “have it all” this place is for you. Our family adored our time here. Staff is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Accommodations are exceptional- with nightly turn down service- and the food. I mean the food! Bartenders Tim and Ainslei know how to mix it up and are much fun!
My husband and I found this place last year in June by mistake. We just finished staying 4 nights, this year and couldn’t have been more happy with our choice! We opted for two tour, and they were both amazing. In fact, we’re already booked for next year and bringing our daughter and son-in-law with us♡
Spa Devine
Went for the spa treatment and it was everything I needed and more. Stayed for lunch. The spinach dip and plantain chips I recommend, but if you’re on your own ask for a small portion. I followed it up with a wrap. The chicken was good. A bit too heavy on the raisins. The service is impeccable.

Great family experience
We had a wonderful stay with our children (5yo and 8yo) We especially enjoyed the farm tour, tasting all of the wonderful produce grown on site. We also had a lot of fun with the chocolate and tortilla making classes. The staff organized everything perfectly, the on and off-site activities, domestic transportation, etc. Dining experience was superb.

An Amazing Week In The Jungle
While trout fishing in Montana, Corey Street (our guide) started talking about this awesome place called [Copal Tree Lodge] and bone fishing in Belize. Corey got me so excited I asked my husband to get us a reservation quickly before all the slots were taken for the season. Corey’s description was “right on”, our experience was awesome.
