About Us:
Crystal Paradise Resort offers a unique and intimate way to experience the magic of Belize. Join us for your Belize vacation, and you will remember your trip for a lifetime.

The lodge is located in the lush jungle and along side the beautiful Macal River, a secluded location but still close to San Ignacio, the major town of the San Ignacio. Combine this exotic atmosphere with genuine Belizean family hospitality, and the result is a rare encounter between culture and adventure.

Crystal Paradise Resort was hand built by the Tut family, using the ancient art of palm-thatched roofs that compliment with the natural beauty of Belize. Our large family runs the resort as a team to offer you the finest accommodations along with a wide variety of activities and tours, offering you a vacation that regular hotels can’t compare with.

Facilities & Services:
We are happy to offer several lodging options to suit different tastes and budgets. All of our cabanas are fully screened, equipped with ceiling fans, private baths with hot and cold showers. You can relax and listen to the sounds of the jungle from your very own veranda with a hammock and deck chairs for your comfort.

  • Valley View Thatched Cabanas – These cabanas offer a breath taking view of the Macal River valley and surrounding jungles. A gentle breeze and the thatched roof make the temperature inside the room pleasant both day and night. Each room contains a queen-sized bed and either a double, single or two single beds.

    • Garden View Thatched Cabanas – As the name suggests, the Garden View cabanas offer a great view of the garden and landscape of Crystal Paradise. Each room has a double bed and single bed, or two single beds.
