Legendary director Francis Ford Coppola knows a great location when he sees one, and he instantly fell in love with the Belizean setting of Blancaneaux Lodge. Purchased and used as a personal retreat, he's now opened it to the public. Scattered across the site are twenty discreet thatched roof dwellings, set along a river where waterfalls tumble into swimming holes above the jungle canopy. Each of the cabañas, villas, and cottages offer access to the natural waters, fresh water infinity pool, the relaxing Jaguar Bar, and the Montagna and Guatemaltecqua restaurants serving traditional Italian and locally-inspired fare, respectively. While the lodge's setting is certainly dramatic, equally so are the nearby ancient Mayan Ruins, which you can explore during your stay with the help of Coppola's team of expert adventure guides.
