Day 1 - 3
Arrive to the Belize International Airport, where you will be met by our local representative to transfer to Gaia Riverlodge in the scenic Mountain Pine Forest region – your home for the next three nights.
Gaïa Riverlodge (formerly Five Sisters Lodge) has long been one of Belize’s most celebrated eco-tourist destinations. Inspired by the property’s natural beauty, the resort overlooks spectacular waterfalls located right on the grounds of the lodge. The sparkling clear water of the nearby river, the shimmering spray of the falls, and the contrasting green of the forest are accentuated by the lodge’s beautiful landscaping, which showcases a wide array of indigenous bushes and trees, flowers and orchids.
Gaïa Riverlodge ensures easy access to gorgeous waterfalls either by simply walking down the stairs or by means of Belize’s only hydro-powered rain forest tram. Once you arrive at the freshwater pools, the fun begins! You can swim in the clear waters of the river, which is just a stone’s throw away from your cabana, or relax in the sun on a tiny river-island retreat.
The lodge’s central location makes touring Belize easy. Many of Belize’s most sought-after attractions, such as the country’s Mayan ruins, are just a day trip away. Plus, the area offers a tantalizing array of activities, from zip-lining and cave exploration, to horseback riding on wilderness trails, and boating along a local river.

Transfer to Copal Tree Lodge for the next luscious part of your honeymoon.
Set in the verdant hills above the Caribbean coast of southern Belize, Copal Tree Lodge is a sanctuary from the everyday world. The definition of agritourism-chic: a jungle lodge, organic farm, and a 12,000-acre nature reserve, Copal Tree Lodge offers the best in local food and culture, active adventures, wildlife viewing, saltwater fly-fishing, and world-class hospitality.
At the heart of Copal Tree Lodge is the Main Lodge with the restaurant, bar, spa, lounge areas, a swimming pool, and observation decks that open to stunning vistas of the coast, the Maya Mountains and a seemingly endless pristine rainforest. Sixteen individual, spacious suites are well appointed with plush beds, screened fresh-air verandas, and spa-style bathrooms with floor to ceiling tropical rainforest views.
Walk down 365 steps or take the private tram to the riverside dock where kayaks and canoes are available for complimentary use, or visit the air-conditioned gym. From the dock you can embark on tranquil cruises on the jungle reaches of the Rio Grande or guided snorkeling and fishing adventures on the Caribbean Sea.
