JAGUAR PAW JUNGLE LODGE
Belize, Central America
About a thousand years ago, Jaguar Paw was renowned as a great leader of Maya Indians. Today the name is gaining fame again, this time as the jungle resort. Jaguar Paw snuggles in thick lush jungle near the crystalline waters of the Caves Branch River, offering top-notch adventure in the day with the cool, comfortable surroundings of a first class resort at night.
Jaguar Paw is full of surprises. It suddenly
appears like a mirage among the fan palms and tropical flowers at the
bottom of a steep, rocky road.
But would you expect a spectacular dining room and bar with 25-foot ceilings and a water wall waiting there for you in the middle of the jungle?
|Or would you expect to find guest rooms uniquely decorated with such novelties as lace shower curtains or furnishings made from the stones and trees of the jungle itself? Sixteen one-of-a kind uniquely decorated air conditioned rooms provide the conveniences of home smack in the middle of Belize's pristine rain forest. Yes its just you- and the wildlife - and, of course other guests.
|Or how about a pristine swimming pool awaiting the moonlight swimmer? If you follow the walkway to the right of the main building, you will find the aviary and gift shop just past the swimming pool. A further walk past the pool a jungle path will lead you to one of the largest and most spectacular caves in Belize.
|Equally surprising is that when a new morning begins, so do the adventures. On the 200-acres of Jaguar Paw are the mouths of three awesome caves with vestiges of their use by Mayan ancestors. With guests in boats or wearing inner tubes experienced guides lead the way through the labyrinth of waterways connecting the caves.
A hundred yard walk from the entrance will take you to the Caves Branch River and the mouth of one of our smaller caves.
Don't be afraid of the dark, at night the cave is subtly illuminated providing a romantic setting for a late night dip.
Without getting their feet wet guests, aided by a knowledgeable guide, can stalk the jungle paths for signs of wild animals, to spot some of the more than 500 species of birds, to recognize the medicinal herbs, and to hear about the jungle ghosts from the Belizean Bushmen who believe in them. And, not far in either direction from the resort, are ancient ruins awaiting exploration.
Three years in the making, Jaguar Paw is owned and operated by Donna and Cy Young,
"We don't believe that people who love the jungle have to live like Tarzan and Jane to enjoy their adventure," says Donna Young.
"We're betting that after a strenuous day our guests will want perhaps a cool drink, a hot shower, a good gourmet meal, and comfortable bed."
