Pine Ridge Lodge
In the forest, next to the jungle!
The management team at Pine Ridge Lodge, Richard, Vicki & Gary, have built, maintained and cared for the lodge since its inception in June of 1992. Most of our Belizean crew has been with the lodge in excess of 5 years.
Our staff regularly produces the finest food in the Pine Ridge, while maintaining the lodge and creating some of the most beautiful gardens on the planet. Furthermore, no other lodge has a staff with better knowledge of Caracol or the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve.
- 5 Miles within the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve
- Clean Comfortable Cottages, Private Bathrooms
- Fine Food, the Freshest Fruits & Vegetables
- Unique World Class Tours, Qualified Mayan Guides
Facilities & Services:
Our primary objective is to provide our guests with privacy, peace and solitude within a natural setting.
Our accommodations include three distinct styles: Forestview, Mayan & Riverview cottages. Our six cottages are clean, comfortable and have private bathrooms with hot showers.
- Our Riverview cottages overlook the Little Vaqueros creek with screened-in porches and hammocks for our guests’ privacy.
- The Mayan cottages are large native-style freestanding cottages, built with materials gathered from the forest, including thatched roofs.
- The Forestview cottage enjoys the sound of our bubbling river, the Little Vaqueros Creek, and a breathtaking vista of the surrounding forest.
Orchids throughout the area add color to the lodge’s accommodations.

Of Special Note:
Certainly one of the main attractions of Pine Ridge Lodge is its proximity to the towering Mayan ruins of Caracol. Just 33 miles from the site, Pine Ridge Lodge is the last stop for an ice cold beer on the road to Caracol. No other resort is closer.
Archaeologists estimate that at its height, Caracol supported a population of 185,000, covered an area of 75 square miles, and defeated the city of Tikal to become the foremost Mayan city of its day. Only a partially excavated city deep in the broadleaf jungle remains today, but the essence of the mighty city is there for explorers of all interests and backgrounds to appreciate.
