Crystal Paradise Resort: "Jungle Adventure" Belize Hotel Tip by Diana_Rae

Belize Hotels: 173 reviews and 224 photos

In order to really feel the full Belize Effect, you really have to make your way into mainland Belize and stay in the jungle. This is an experience you will never forget, and a once in a lifetime chance for an adventure!!

Crystal Paradise is a family owned and operated, hut/bungalow style complex located in the heart of the jungles of Belize. The family runs a variety of outdoor excursions (horseback riding, canoeing, hiking, various tours), and the resort is located next to a beautiful river.

I would definitely stay here again if I ever decide to go back, as it was clean and the owners were extremely knowledgeable, funny, and friendly.

Unique Qualities: When you stay, you and the rest of the guests eat at the same time in the dining hall, a grass roofed balcony with a bar and amazing deck with jungle views. The family cooks traditional Belizean food (mostly chicken, rice, and fresh fruit) for each meal; breakfast lunch and dinner are scheduled around the times each group leaves/returns from their adventures for the day. If your activities keep you away for lunch, they pack sandwiches. fruit, and soda for you to take along.
