Nestled between unspoiled rainforest and the banks of the Moho River, Cotton Tree Lodge offers a tranquil retreat on 100 private acres in the undiscovered Toledo District. It was opened in early 2007, hoping to develop “a magical place – where visitors could get in touch with the land, the people, and themselves”. Each day begins a new adventure, with locally guided tours to Mayan villages, ancient ruins, waterfalls, and caves. Activities available on the grounds include birding, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming, medicinal plant walks, or simply relaxing in a hammock. The Lodge is eight miles from the Caribbean – close enough to enjoy snorkeling, diving, fishing, or sailing on a day trip. While there is a focus on sustainability, the hotel offers all amenities to keep guests comfortable. We look forward to hosting you!
Each day our guests have the opportunity to explore the Toledo District on one of our cultural, chocolate, adventure, or wildlife tours. Visit Mayan villages and homes, connecting with the local people. Hear the Afro-Carribbean rhythms of Garifuna drummers, taste the sweet tartness of the cacao fruit. Active types will enjoy jumping from Rio Blanco Waterfalls or venturing into Tiger Cave. If you are looking to try something a little different, consider joining a volunteer trip with Sustainable Harvest International.
