This very exclusive lodge, owned by one Francis Ford Coppola, even has its own private air strip. The chic cabanas are wonderfully appointed and reflect a global fusion of styles. They mostly have river views and have their own plunge pools. You can even rent Coppola’s own villa if he’s not in town.
Located in Western Belize, this is the spiritual home of the Mayan culture in the country. It is especially favoured by families, as in addition to the historical sites, there is a wealth of soft adventure activities. There’s also a great natural history museum at Chaa Creek.
