Fodor's Review

Operated by a French-American couple formerly of Ambergris Caye, this jungle resort on the Macal River is a step up in luxury, service, and dining from run-of-the-mill lodges. With lofted ceilings and tile floors, bathrooms with glass-block shower walls, and stylish furnishings, Mystic River's six cottages, with river or forest views from covered porches, may lure you to lounge in your room instead of going on one of the jungle adventures offered by the resort. On cooler winter evenings, you can relax in your king bed, and watch a crackling fire in the stone fireplace. At the lodge's restaurant, La Ranita (The Little Frog), in a high-ceiling thatch palapa set about 100 feet above the river, a talented chef serves an eclectic menu of Belizean, Thai, and other dishes, while you enjoy the views and sounds of the jungle. Packages are available, such as the three-night "Easy Jungle" plan with lodging, all meals, transfers from Belize City, and two tours, for around BZ$4,300 for two persons.
