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. We took the snorkeling trip with the chef which was a full day and absolutely fantastic. Beyond that, we kayaked the river, took the farm tour, enjoyed massages at the spa, hiked and relaxed by the pool. The staff is very friendly and gracious. I would highly recommend this resort. Easy to get to by plane from Belize City. We’ll definitely go back!
