GAIA Riverlodge in Belize: Incredible Jungle Escape

Retreat, explore, dine and indulge within one of Belize's most celebrated ecotourist destinations.

Located in the lush Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and surrounded by the sparkling Five Sisters waterfalls, GAÏA Riverlodge is one of Belize’s most celebrated ecotourist destinations, offering the traveler an incredible jungle escape. Imagine an opportunity to enjoy your own private cabana, perched upon the edge of a valley overlooking waterfalls. You can choose from 15 private retreats, each featuring Belizean hardwoods, traditional bay leaf thatched roofs and incredible mahogany interiors.

Spend the day zip-lining, mountain biking, cave tubing or bird-watching amongst the trees. For a road-trip, hop over to the Mayan ruin at Caracol and experience Belize’s ancient wonders.

Back at the lodge, take in expansive views from the wrap-around terrace at GAÏA Riverlodge’s restaurant and lounge, or retreat into the comfort of your own private cabana. Take in your own custom view from a private veranda with hammock, relax under ceiling fans, or enjoy the many other amenities including a bathroom decorated with hand-painted Mexican tiles, beds with pillow top mattresses, and Matouk and Frette linens, your stay has all the comforts you desire.

If you’re wanting to indulge, sumptuous treatments and blissful relaxation at the newly opened Spa on-site are just for you. Natural ingredients from the Belizean jungle are infused in each treatment, such as the Banana Papaya facial, Sunset Aromatherapy Massage and Eco-calm facial.

Considering that Belize is so close to the U.S, is the only English-speaking country in Central America (with a diversity of opportunities including rainforests, the mysteries of Ancient Maya, fabulous white sand beaches and an enormous 174 mile-long barrier reef), the real question is: “When are you going?”
