Copal Tree Lodge

The grounds of Copal Tree Lodge were once walked by ancient Mayans. Now it is part of southern Belize, land steeped in Creole and Garifuna culture. Steps from the Rio Grande, nestled in the rainforest a short distance from the Caribbean Sea, the resort is a nexus of Belizean diversity.

Copal Tree connects with this rich land as an agricultural resort. Lounge in furniture made on-site from wood felled just outside the walls. Sample heirloom crops from the 3,000-acre organic farm. Taste the catch of the day, courtesy of a local fisherman. Sip rum made at the organic on-site distillery.

Explore this self-sustaining resort and experience a unique luxury, linked to place and borne from the earth underfoot.
