Has Anyone Heard about Ian Anderson's Cave Branch Lodge?

My sister is thinking of taking her kids, but was surprised at the cost (as was I, having been to Belize in the past and found it quite affordable). Would love to hear if it's worth the money.

Well, things have been spruced up quite a bit at Ian's over the years, and some of the rooms and suites there are quite luxurious now.  For an adventurous family, it's hard to beat tho. His cave and river tours, and location are top notch. A few nights at Ian Anderson's and then a few nights on a caye or beach makes for a great Belizean vacation.

Hmmm...I don't think they really need luxury digs. Is it possible to take the tours there without paying for the accommodations?

Yes, you can just do the tours with them, and I highly recommend that. Still they have some less luxurious rooms that come in at around $150/night that could/should be considered. It's a great setting in deep forest right on the banks of the Caves Branch River.

I took my family there, after visiting other parts of Belize. Though it's too late for this family, I'd ONLY recommend it if you are planning to stay for a few days and can get one of their all-inclusive packages. They offer some wonderful adventures, though frankly, with the exception of a few of their on-property tours, most can be booked for less money directly from outside tour packagers. That being said, it's a well-run adventure lodge but it's not the only game in town. Do your research before booking.
