What a wonderful experience! I am sure that if you are reading this you are at the very least, partially aware of why I say this.
From the atmosphere of the country and the people’s hospitality to the Jungle Dome, it’s staff and the tours, I believe that this is the most exhilarating, healing and enjoyable experience of my travels and my life!

Our first trip to Central America. What a wonderful place to stay! All of the trips were fun and we learned a great deal about Mayan culture from our guide Luis. If you go to Tikal, I strongly recommend you stop at the border town before you return to Belize. We certainly hope to return to do and see the places we did not have time for. The food is excellent!

Yay for the Jungle Dome!
What to say? There are not enough words to describe the experience we had at the Jungle Dome. The Dome is so beautiful but the people make it extra special. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the food is fantastic! We really felt at home here.
We came here for a little vacation. My husband is the one who really wanted to come to Belize. I’m not a fan of hot, humid, buggy weather but I love my husband. If it weren’t for the Jungle Dome, my Belize experience wouldn’t have been nearly as great.
Karen took care of us along with David. Everyone was so accommodating and made us feel like family. I got to see David’s new baby girl Amy and Nora’s baby girl, Karen.
Now about the adventures….our first day out we did the ATM tour. It was amazing. I really didn’t know what to expect but it was unbelievable! I didn’t realize it was a wet cave, so that was a surprise. We stayed wet/walking in water most of the time. I had been in quite a few caves but none like this. This is a MUST do adventure.
The next day we did the Black Hole Drop. It was so challenging! I really struggled with the hike and when it came to the rappelling part I was just glad to be able to sit and relax awhile. I wasn’t too scared about the 300 foot drop! They tell you the hike out is easier but it isn’t. Don’t let them fool you. My hubby loved it thought and I am just a wimp I guess. I wouldn’t recommend this if you are not used to hiking and heat.
The next day I took it easy with a wonderful massage and some souvenir shopping while my husband went kayaking. He had a great time and got to see many birds and iguanas. I stayed at the Dome and saw two Toucans in the Guanacaste tree right outside the patio. They are very rare to see so I felt lucky.
The next day we did cave tubing and zip line. It was a very fun and relaxing day. The river was moving pretty low and slow so we took a little longer than you would in the wet season but it was nice and relaxing. The zip lines were great for beginners. It was very exciting and a great day for families.
I can’t say enough about the people at the Jungle Dome. They are AMAZING. Everyone is so personable and genuinely kind. They really care about your experience here. Be appreciative and don’t take it for granted. You can’t find service like this anywhere.
Enjoy your stay and have fun. We’ll miss the Dome. The food was amazing!

We had a wonderful stay at the Jungle Dome. Everything was excellent ~ the service, the food, our room. Karen did a great job planning our day trips. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Everyone has been so friendly.
We especially enjoyed our evening conversations with David. Thanks so much!

Dear Jungle Dome Staff
WE have been on numerous vacations but nothing quite compares to our experience here. The service was amazing, the food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was positively delightful. Each day was a new and exciting adventure that somehow seemed to exceed the day before.
Our tour guides were knowledgeable, friendly and made each experience the best it could be. From scuba diving the Blue Hole to rappelling the Black Hole Drop to exploring ATM Cave ~ we could not have asked for more. We gained a new-found appreciation and admiration for Mayan Culture and history. We cannot wait to spread the word to our friends of not only the luxuries of the Jungle Dome but also of the beauties of this country.
Thank you so very much!
A special thanks to Luis, Alex & Lil Alfonse – the best tour guides Belize has to offer. And to Karen – you have gone above and beyond to ensure we felt more at home than just on vacation. Thank you once again and hope to see you soon!
