The Eco-Lodge Balancing Treehouses and Adventure in Western Belize

by Carolee Chanona

The smallest (by population) and arguably safest country in Central America can’t deliver on volcanoes or surfing. However, what Belize can compete with its regional cousins in is its eco-lodges. Because while some come to Belize with an adventurous spirit in search of unrivaled outdoor experiences and others in search of nature’s tranquillity, both will find a plethora of opportunities to connect with this enigmatic and lush ecosystem. One of the best ways to experience Belize’s rainforest? From the wraparound veranda of a treehouse. Step into Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge. Its 21 rooms connect to 20 tropical acres, but none quite do it like their premier and signature treehouses.   

Seclusion in Western Belize With Sweeping Rainforest Sights

Your next question on Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge might be, “Premier treehouse, or signature treehouse?” Ultimately, the premier’s design and style are perfect for those seeking total immersion from two stories up. Both treehouses have a private indoor bathroom and outdoor tub, but the brand-new signature treehouse also features a breakfast nook and custom built-in daybed net instead of the premier’s suspended daybed. The king bed and air conditioning are well-deserved after a sun-filled day. If you need ideas, use the complimentary tubes for floating, kayaks for exploring, and sweet fixes at evening bonfires. And just next door to the lodge is the 45-acre Belize Botanic Gardens, owned by Judy duPlooy. 

Besides the new infinity-edge pool overlooking the Macal River and jungle treetops, Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge has something even more unique. There aren’t many beaches in the jungle, but Sweet Songs has an inviting, sandy spit of land on the riverbank that’s worth the steep dirt road in the Cayo District jungle about 15 miles from San Ignacio. Although, accommodations aren’t the only lodgings that are suspended either.

The full-service Treehouse Bar & Restaurant serves Caribbean cuisine from above the jungle canopy. Not to mention, it’s where kinkajous and collared aracaris pop in for fresh fruit feedings.
