Tropical Tranquility at Coppola's Blancaneaux Lodge in Belize

Tropical Tranquility at Coppola’s Blancaneaux Lodge in Belize

You’ve worked your whole life to be able to enjoy this moment. The kids are gone and there’s no job to rush back to – now is your time for adventure!

Burrowed in a remote rainforest location hidden in Belize’s Maya Mountains is a tranquil tropical getaway perfect for the young-at-heart who are looking to enjoy retirement or escape an empty nest. At Francis Ford Coppola’s Blancaneaux Lodge, guests can enjoy the thrill of a truly unique, off-the-beaten-path holiday in an area of the world unspoiled by modern conveniences and tourism. The intimate 20-room luxury resort hotel is a true jungle oasis and rainforest hideaway that’s the ideal locale for relaxation and rejuvenation with a plethora of activities available to explore and enjoy, including:

Sunrise Bird Watching

Take a short sunrise walk around the resort’s gardens and trails as your personal guide points out the well-camouflaged birds hiding in the nearby rain forest. Learn about our migrant species and the many secrets of our feathered friends, as with almost 600 species documented in Belize, this walk is an excellent introduction to the region’s native birdlife.


Explore the natural beauty surrounding Blancaneaux Lodge with a variety of different immersive hiking experiences, including a full day hike through the jungle-clad hills of the Elijio Panti National Park; a trek to BigRock Falls for a soothing dip into cool mountain creek energized by the massive waterfall or an orchid walk along trails beside tumbling waterfalls and granite outcroppings with trees home to several different species of the vibrant flower.

Horseback Riding

Blancaneaux’s multiple horseback riding tours are ideal for all riders, regardless of age or skill-level. Tours through the jungle are available during sunrise and sunset, as well as tours to Big Rock Falls, where riders can take a break from the saddle and swim under a cascading waterfall.

Farm to Fork Cooking Experience

Blancaneaux provides guests with a selection of local dishes the Lodge’s chef can cook for their family. The chef then takes them on a behind-the-scenes venture through the resort’s expansive organic garden to gather the seasonal vegetables needed for the meal, which includes an appetizer, main course, dessert and a local beverage made from fresh garden produce as well.

Ancient Mayan Ruins

Blancaneaux’s remote rainforest location is in close proximity to several ancient Mayan ruins, providing guests with the opportunity to discover the rich history of the Mayan civilizations of Caracol and Xunantunich from stunning vistas high in the jungle that feature breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding rainforest

Cave Explorations

Blancaneaux is in close proximity to many ancient cave dwellings dating back to the Mayan empire and the Lodge offers several different excursions to explore their depths. Physically fit guests can take a trek to one of Belize’s main inland attractions, Actun Tunichil Mucnal, which requires a short swim, rock climbing and passage through tight spaces. For the less athletically inclined, leisurely cave canoeing and tubing trips are also available.
