Small touches

Copal Tree Lodge is a wonder to explore on its own, and the jungles that surround it offer amazing adventures you can only get in beautiful Belize. Hike through the foothills of the Maya Mountains, tour the nearby Jungle Farm, kayak down the Rio Grande, or breathe the day away at the Yoga Palapa – there are so many choices waiting for you in paradise. Experience every step of chocolate making in a “Bean-to-Bar” class, or tour the Copalli Rum distillery and learn to mix fresh Caribbean cocktails.   Kayaks, canoes, and mountain bikes are available for guest use.  If you are looking to explore further, the tenured staff is happy to help organize snorkeling, scuba, fishing, or cultural excursions.

Eat and drink

As part of its commitment to conserving the natural beauty of Belize, Copal Tree Lodge maintains a 3,000 acre on-site farm. The farm produces 70% of the food served to guests, showcasing a true farm-to-table dining experience you can’t get anywhere else. Influenced by the culturally rich Belizean heritage, meals at the Garden Table are a blend of Mayan, East Indian, Creole, Garifuna, Latin and Indo-Caribbean inspired fare prepared by using traditional and modern cooking techniques. The chefs accommodate a variety of diets including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or dairy-free. Located in the heart of the main lodge, the Rum Bar offers freshly squeezed juices, coconuts, limes, exotic fruits, and fresh herbs combined with locally made spirits. The lodge even distills their own farm-to-bottle organic Copalli Rum. All-inclusive packages are available and recommended for a truly carefree trip. 

And more

Few spots are as magical as Copal Tree Lodge when it comes to special occasions. Weddings and yoga retreats are particularly popular here, and for good reason. Your event at Copal Tree Lodge is an unparalleled chance to relax in the lap of luxury atop the jungle canopy.  Philanthropy is a founding value: For every night a guest stays at Copal Tree Lodge or another Muy’Ono Resort, a donation is made to a local organization. The beneficiary organizations are different for each resort and change every month, ensuring that Muy’Ono Resorts help as many organizations as possible throughout the year.
