Fodor's Expert Review Amber Sunset Jungle Resort

Mile 59, George Price Hwy., Cayo, Belize

Owned by a family originally from Belize City, this jungle resort makes a real effort to show the diversity of Belize; the five cabanas, built into the jungle canopy, are each decorated to reflect one of Belize's major population groups (Creoles, mestizos, Maya, Garifuna, and the Mennonites). Evening meals in the Jungle Pot restaurant also have themes tied to the different groups. The lodge, which has a swimming pool, is on 28 acres near the village of Unitedville east of San Ignacio.
