Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge is an adventurer’s paradise. Tucked into the lush banks of the Macal River in San Ignacio, this eco-lodge is truly one with its natural setting. The options for adventure are endless: you can swim, relax and enjoy unlimited use of tubes and canoes at the private Macal River Beach. Birdwatchers stay busy surrounded by the sights and sounds of tropical birds swooping through the jungle canopy. Travel by horseback around the grounds and the connecting trails, or even take an equine excursion to Xunantunich, the Mayan archeological site. When you’ve had your fill of adventure, retreat to your well-appointed and charming room. The lodge’s 21 rooms are a combination of private and family-style accommodations, suited for all types of travelers. When you stay at Sweet Songs, your experience is far from cookie-cutter, thanks to the warm staff, the knowledgeable tour guides, and the handmade healthy meals.
Surrounded by 100 acres of lush tropical forest, every aspect of this property — including its energy — is connected to its beautiful location. In the company of like-minded nature-lovers, you’ll feel the magic and authenticity of this truly spectacular jungle setting. The experience is the opposite of what you’d get at a corporate property. Here, staff members call you by name, and you’ll and you’re greeted with a smile everywhere you go. One thing’s for certain, there’s nowhere else quite like this.
Natural wonders wait for you: Sleep in a tree house, explore a botanic garden, and drift along a river.
Sweet Songs offers accommodations for everyone — from honeymooners to families, from solo travelers to small groups. Many rooms have air conditioning, but most guests prefer to sleep with fresh air: you'll be lulled to sleep by a cacophony of tropical sounds and wake up to the calls of Chachalacas and Yellow-headed Parrots, underpinned by the cooing of White-tipped Doves. You won’t find a TV in your room, but you won’t miss it either. At Sweet Songs, you’ll be inspired to unplug from tech and reconnect with nature and each other. (Rest assured, there is reliable WiFi in the Treehouse Bar.)
Enjoy a savory selection of Belizean and Caribbean style cuisine all day, every day. Every meal is freshly prepared, including tasty breads and scrumptious desserts. When you choose the all-inclusive package, you get breakfast, lunch, a three-course dinner and drinks. Otherwise, you can purchase meals a la carte. Dine in the open air of the Treehouse Bar, perched in the canopy, or in the enclosed dining room. The Treehouse Bar offers everything from non-alcoholic smoothies and fruit juices to Belizean rum and beer. It’s also the best place to meet the local wildlife. Dinner is different every night: your menu might include potato chaya soup, calypso chicken or coconut shrimp. Sweet Songs is happy to accommodate dietary restrictions.
Sweet Songs Lodge bears the loving mark of its original owners, the duPlooy family, who established a love for sustainability and responsible resource use that continues today. Philanthropy is a founding value: for every night a guest stays at Sweet Songs Lodge or another Muy’Ono Resort, a donation is made to a local charitable 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.
