Mariposa Beach Resort: Where Butterflies Fly Free and Guests do, too!
Treehouses and oceanfront suites—and more treehouses, oh my! But being up high is part of the thrill for vacationers who love the idea that Placencia Belize’s Mariposa Beach Resort was named for gorgeous flowers that remind vacationers of majestic butterflies. Come visit and you may see some of these creatures flit past the two acres of oceanfront beach and come to rest in littoral forests that dot the area.
Placencia, Belize has become trendy
Founded in 2014 by Bruce and Sharon Maddison whose hopes and dreams continue to soar as high as butterfly wings, their goal was creating a tropical Eden where visitors can shed their stressors and worries in much the same way butterflies escape their cocoons. The Maddisons didn’t choose Placencia by accident. This lush finger of land is becoming a favorite of international visitors who seek as much fun as they do relaxation.
Having decided to employ only Belizean staffers, the Maddisons are fast becoming entrenched in village life by volunteering to help with fundraising efforts that benefit their neighbors. “Our favorite is the “Pay it Forward” children’s birthday party program,” says Sharon, who looks forward to connecting with the community at every opportunity. “We love giving back every chance we get,” adds Bruce.
A resort that has everything you desire
Why mention the generosity of the Mariposa Beach Resort owners? Because you’ll see their big hearts reflected in everything about this lush haven. From luxe appointments within each lodging to a swimming pool that competes with the ocean, a stay at Mariposa is the ultimate in relaxation and guests couldn’t go hungry if they tried. The Breezeway Restaurant and Pool bar, furnished with pieces made from Belize woods, is Chef Aron’s dominion. Using freshly-picked produce, just-caught fish and lobster, his menus are international, eclectic and guaranteed to delight.
Ask frequent visitors what compels them to return to Mariposa and you’ll have no shortage of feedback:
-“It’s small! You can kiss crowds goodbye.”
-“Everyone speaks English and we can use U.S. dollars for everything.”
-“I was won over by so many awards. Mariposa is just 5 years old, but it’s getting quite the reputation!”
Now is the time to visit—-when rates are low
Of course, frequent visitors would just as soon keep this resort a secret! Nestled into the beachfront, guests never run into crowds, so privacy and tranquility abound.
