Jaguar Reef Lodge & Spa

Come visit Jaguar Reef Lodge and you will be surrounded by millions of acres of reef and rainforest with unlimited opportunities for snorkelling, diving, fishing, biking, caving, kayaking and hiking through pristine and protected eco systems. For almost twenty years Jaguar Reef Lodge has been the resort of choice for thousands of travellers who enjoy our central location, our comfortable cabanas and suites, our award winning dining and our easy access to many of the natural wonders that have made Belize a world-class adventure travel destination!

Our Barrier Reef is recognized as one of the world’s top snorkel and dive sites. Exotic tropical rivers, Mayan ruins and jungle hikes are only minutes away. The nearby Sittee River, offshore cayes, and wide flats offer some of the best kayaking and fishing on the planet!

We are located one mile south of Hopkins Village on a 600 acre peninsula with 7 miles of prime white sand beach at our door step. It is a friendly, laid-back experience with an abundance of Belizean hospitality to share! Many of our guests say that this Belize Resort has a unique ambiance. We are recognized for our comfortable four star accommodations, our exhilarating tours and our unrivalled attention to our guest’s comfort. With one employee for every guest, we offer the highest level of customer service in Belize!


We have a variety of deluxe accommodations at Jaguar Reef Lodge because not all people have the same needs. Our cabanas are spacious and private. Our 1 and 2 bedroom suites have rooms to spare with kitchenettes, TVs and stereos – they’re great for families. All our rooms have scenic views, unique artwork and are finished with tropical wood.

You’ll enjoy all your delicious meals on our covered patio overlooking the blue Caribbean Sea. We also have a bar in the lounge and a swim-up bar at the pool, as well as a full-service cappuccino bar. We offer an array of onsite activities – the beach, two pools, bikes, kayaks, and more. Our facilities and location are second to none and offer an unforgettable adventure vacation.

Cabanas & Suites
Artistically raked sand around tropical vegetation lines the pathway leading to your door. As you enter your cabana or suite, you will have a sense of spacious privacy – fresh and immaculate. Local artwork and little touches will remind you that you are on an adventure in a very beautiful, natural place. Whether you are relaxing on your cabana porch or on the balcony of your suite, you’ll find the scenic views remarkable.

When dining at Jaguar Reef Lodge, expect only the best! All meals are served on our covered patio overlooking the beautiful, blue Caribbean Sea. Our chefs and restaurant staff are friendly and will see to your every need. The many fruits and vegetables that we serve are grown locally, an increasing amount coming from organic farms.

Spa Services
Butterflies Spa surrounds a flower-filled courtyard, only yards away from our infinity pool, beach, and the blue Caribbean Sea. Butterflies Spa is a full-service spa offering an exciting range of treatments. Make your first experience at Butterflies our special Jetlag Defrag, which helps you quickly forget the turmoil of air travel, and prepares body and mind for your wonderful holiday in Belize

Our Beach
Stretching for miles, our world-class beach offers fine golden sand and ideal swimming conditions. The water is normally crystal clear and has no strong currents or undertows. There is almost no tidal change in Belize. Unlike Ambergris Cay or other coastal areas of the country, there is very little turtle grass or other vegetation which makes walking in the water difficult and potentially dangerous.

Things to Do
At Jaguar Reef Lodge the variety of activities is almost endless, from relaxing on one of our beach hammocks to exploring the nearby Garifuna Village of Hopkins.


About Us

There are many vacation destinations that offer a beautiful beach, lovely rooms, activities and great food. But what makes a resort stand out among the pack? It’s the people and their attention to detail. Jaguar Reef Lodge’s staff takes care of the details. We enjoy making your vacation the trip of a lifetime.

But don’t take our word for it. Here are just two comments from our guests that you can read on our Guest Comments page:

  • “The staff was excellent and we will be back for an anniversary soon!”
  • “The candle light dinner on the beach was an experience to remember for a lifetime.”
  • They tell the story of Jaguar Reef Lodge and what is important to our guests and to us.

Environmental Policy
Our goal is to reduce our use of fossil fuels both in our day to day activities and in the products we use. We have therefore set the goal of reducing our vehicle energy use by 10% in 2008. We have already replaced several of our vehicles with diesel fuel, and bought larger vehicles to reduce the number of vehicles used. We plan in 2008 to continue this program, to look for opportunities to reduce our energy use including reducing the numbers of trips we take for shopping, combining these trips with other activities wherever possible.



If you’re looking for adventure Jaguar Reef Lodge is the place for you. We will help you experience what Belize has to offer. We have a wide range of half- and full-day adventure tours with varying degrees of difficulty. There is literally something for everybody.

Hikers, birders, snorkelers, boaters, and Mayan ruin enthusiasts will find a tour just for them. Would you like to visit a Jaguar preserve? We have tours to the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve where jaguars, howler monkeys and other wildlife prowl through the dense tropical rainforest.

Or does breakfast by the Sittee River watching toucans, parrots and parakeets frolic in the trees sound intriguing? We also offer horseback riding under the rainforest canopy. Fishing tours will take you to the Sittee River where you can troll, spin and fly fish. For divers the second largest Barrier Reef is just a short boat ride away. We offer several different dive locations as well as extensive PADI dive courses.
