THE MARIPOSA EXPERIENCE
Enjoy It All
At Mariposa, our motto is “Adventure by Day and Comfort by Night.” When you’re not busy on adventure tours, there is plenty to do on our private 40-acre retreat. Explore nature trails and the birdwatch tower, take a refreshing dip in the pool, or relax with a massage. Enjoy complimentary wifi throughout the resort and unlimited filtered drinking water. And don’t forget the restaurant and bar with friendly servers ready to pamper you in paradise!
Fed by a beautiful slate waterfall, our pool features built-in stools and ledges for ultimate relaxation. Let us bring you snacks and beverages either poolside or in one of the hammocks under the cohune palms to complete your day of leisure.
Feel your stress and sore muscles melt away under the well-trained hands of our massage therapist. Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone massages are available in a tranquil space with private en-suite bathroom for your comfort.
Hiking & Nature Trails
There are several nature trails around our 40-acre property with many Belizean trees and medicinal plants identified along the way. Our property is naturally blessed with a generous collection of Black Orchids, the national flower of Belize, and guests may tour our Orchid Garden to learn more about these exquisite miniature flowers. We offer guided morning nature walks by appointment, and for guests who prefer to explore independently, a Resort Map is provided at check-in.
Gift Shop & Library
Inside the Main Lodge, near the restaurant and bar, is where you’ll find the gift shop and cozy air-conditioned library with a collection of reading materials, table games and puzzles, and travel memorabilia. The gift shop showcases arts and crafts from local Belizeans, including exquisite woodcarvings, original paintings, slate carvings, and traditional Maya baskets, weavings, and jewelry.
Bird Watching Tower
This sturdy structure allows up to 16 people to sit comfortably and take in nature at its finest with a full 360-degree view. Be sure to ask about ‘Happy Hour in the Tower’, or for a really unique experience, spend the night in the Birdwatch Tower by special arrangement.
