Fodor's Expert Review Ian Anderson's Caves Branch Adventure Co. & Jungle Camp

Mile 42.5, Hummingbird Hwy., Belmopan, Cayo, Belize

This adventure lodge has gone upscale, adding hillside "treehouse suites" with jaw-dropping views, a multilevel swimming pool with whirlpool, and a botanical garden featuring orchids and bromeliads. Less-expensive cabanas with outdoor showers are offered, too, along with suites and bungalows. Manager Ian Anderson and his highly trained jungle and cave guides offer more than 20 wilderness adventures in a 58,000-acre private reserve. On the River of Caves trip, you spend hours floating around underground lakes and crawling past stalagmites into dry chambers.
