Fodor's Review

If ever since you were a kid you've wanted to sleep in a tree house by a river, this is your chance. Parrot Nest is a budget lodge at a shady spot beside the Mopan River in Bullet Tree Falls, about three mi (5 km) from San Ignacio. It has two tree houses each for just BZ$98 double, plus tax, along with seven other rustic cabañas, the most expensive of which is BZ$130. This is not a luxury joint, so some of the accommodations have shared bathrooms. There's good birding on the grounds, and the lodge provides inner tubes free so you can float down the river. If you choose to eat at the lodge, breakfast is BZ$14 and dinner is BZ$25. The lodge offers a free shuttle to San Ignacio in the morning, returning to the lodge in the late afternoon.
