Fodor's Review

This jungle lodge is named after the silk cotton tree (also called the kapok or ceiba), a giant specimen of which stands near the main lodge building, and, fittingly, the lodge strives to provide a silky-smooth experience for guests. It sits beside the Moho River about 15 mi (24 km) from Punta Gorda. Guests are usually brought in by boat (though you can also come by road) and stay in one of the thatch cabañas sitting among wild fig trees along the river's edge, or in one of five garden-view rooms. The property's walkways are raised; in the summer rainy season the Moho sometimes floods, and at times the grounds become a large lake, with water lapping at the walkways. The lodge is off the grid, and everything here is solar- or generator-powered. The lodge has a small chocolate factory in Punta Gorda and offers cacao tours and chocolate-making classses. Good meals (dinner BZ$48 plus 12.5% tax) are served in a huge thatch palapa. All-inclusive rates also are available and include accommodations, meals, tours, taxes, and transfers.
