Blancaneaux Lodge (4*)

Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room hideaway in a rainforest where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy. Tucked away in a pocket of the Maya Mountains, the remote mountain setting of this luxury resort makes it an ideal place to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Here guests can explore the ancient civilization of the Maya, ceremonial caves, vast ruins of Caracol, and discover a range of other natural and archaeological wonders
