Fodor's Expert Review Parrot Nest

Bullet Tree Falls, Cayo, Belize

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 3 miles (5 km) from San Ignacio. It has two tree houses, along with seven other rustic cabanas. 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.

PROS

  • rustic but cute cabanas and tree houses
  • good value
  • helpful and friendly owners

CONS

  • not truly in the jungle
  • cabanas are small
  • some traffic and noise from nearby properties
