Sisters Lodge might be described as a cross between Yellowstone
Park and the tropics. Located in the scenic Mountain Pine Ridge
Forest Reserve, the largest protected area in Belize. The
lodge is about a one-hour drive from San Ignacio, on the Caracol
road, just a few miles beyond the gate at the reserve's entrance.
The location is ideal for anyone interested in exploring the region,
including Caracol, Belize's largest Maya ruin, only a 1-1/2 hour
drive from the lodge.
to Five Sister's Lodge
Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve of Belize is a perfect
example of the diversity this country offers. With its reddish soil,
tall pine trees sweeping the sky, and somewhat drier atmosphere,
this region presents a sharp contrast to the dense jungle by which
it is surrounded. In the heart of this locale rests Five Sisters
Lodge, perched high atop the edge of a steep valley, overlooking
the Five Sisters Falls which flow over the rocks far below. (The
falls are so named because there are five of them, side by side.)
With wonderful vistas of the falls, and over the surrounding hills,
this lodge invites you to sit back, relax, and be lured into tranquillity
by the sound of the cascading water.
thatched-roof, gazebo-style wedding chapel sits at the foot of the
falls, a popular spot for weddings.
The 14 cabanas
of varied size are beautifully designed using Belizean materials,
including local hardwoods, pimento sticks, traditional bay leaf
thatched roofs and richly varnished mahogany interiors.
Each cabin is
equipped with hot and cold baths, verandahs and hammocks. The Lodge
has a unique, wood-burning boiler system to heat its water. Our
showers were not necessarily hot, but warm enough to be comfortable.
The lodge provides
full dining facilities, an in-house bar, and a stargazing deck
