Dream Valley, for remote, romantic seclusion
It’s just 10 minutes’ drive from downtown Belmopan, yet Dream Valley feels deliciously back-to-nature. Wood cabins and cottages balance on a grassy bank surrounded by patchy rainforest, overlooking the winding Belize River, where crocodiles lurk. Luxe log cabin interiors, rich in warm polished woods, have ample seating space. They open onto large decks with private dining tables; some have al fresco hot tubs for two. Good-value package deals include all meals and tours from the lodge’s extensive menu, including zip-lining, cave-tubing and visits to Mayan ruins.
