Discover the Enchanting Copal Tree Lodge on Your Summer Getaway to Belize

by Larry Waight

It’s not likely that Lebanese poet, philosopher, and visual artist Kahlil Gibran had opportunities to see every tree on Planet Earth, but his pithy homage, “Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky,” says plenty about the reverence for trees that is shared by all societies. Pre-Columbian people believed that trees are sacred, symbolizing the power of life that springs from the underworld.

Among the most fascinating trees in the Western Hemisphere are Copal trees, revered by ancient Mayas and used during rituals requiring the harvesting of smoky sweet incense from the tree’s sap. Mesoamericans considered copal tree resins to be “the blood of trees”, so versatile that they were used to make paint, makeup, medicines, adhesives, and works of art. Given this impressive list of credentials, it’s no mystery why the minds behind Belize’s Copal Tree Lodge chose the name for this lush resort.

There’s absolutely nothing “ordinary” about this sanctuary hidden within a dense, verdant jungle. Every accommodation was chosen after conferring with Mother Nature about incorporating the outdoors with interior furnishings designed for comfort, privacy, and gracious vacationing. If you’re not convinced of each lodging’s elegance, take a VR-enabled tour here and you’ll be convinced.

By the way, if you’ve ever had a getaway ruined by crowds, you’ll fall even more in love with CTL because there are only 16 suites and one villa on the grounds.
