How to Get to Caves Branch Jungle Lodge

No matter where you are in Belize, getting to the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is easy. 

From Belize City

All international flights arrive at the Philip Goldson airport north of Belize City, and most cruise lines disembark in or near Belize City. Once you're in Belize City, you have two options:

  • Flying - Domestic air carriers Tropic Air and Maya Island Air both have multiple daily connections to the capital of Belmopan, the nearest city to the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Flying is the fastest options but also the most expensive.
  • By Road - The George Price Highway, more commonly known as the Western Highway, directly links Belize City to Belmopan.


Once you're in Belmopan, getting to the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is simple. Exiting the city, simply follow the Hummingbird Highway south towards Dangriga. The Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is approximately 12 miles south of Belmopan at mile marker 41 and a half. Follow the large sign on the left-hand side of the highway that read "Ian Anderson's Caves Branch" onto the private road that leads to the lodge.

If you prefer to travel by public bus, there are multiple options. From Belize City or Belmopan, any bus heading towards Dangriga or Punta Gorda will pass by the turn-off to the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Simply inform the driver of your destination and the driver will let you off at the entrance to the property. On foot, it takes about 15 minutes to get from the highway turn-off to the reception area of the lodge.

Private Transfers

Caves Branch Lodge can arrange for private shuttle service from anywhere in Belize. Simply contact the resort and make arrangements when you book your stay.

The Benefits of Flying

Many guests prefer to fly to the Belmopan airport and then arrange for shuttle services from the Caves Branch Lodge in order to get the most out of their time in Belize. Flying from Belize City to Belmopan is the fastest option, giving guests more time to explore the jungle, enjoy bird watching, hike, see ancient Maya ruins, and enjoy all of the wonderful adventures possible when you stay at the Caves Branch Lodge.

Best of all, the airstrip in Belmopan has direct air connections to other top destinations in the country, including Placencia, Ambergris Caye, and Caye Caulker.
