Belize Escape: March 8 - 12, 2023
Blancaneaux Lodge is one of three luxury properties in Belize owned by Francis Ford Coppola (FFC) of movies and wines. Blancaneaux Lodge is in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve about 90 minutes from the border with Guatemala. It is spectacular. Privassion River runs through the property and most of the cabana rooms are situated along the river. Our room for the first three nights was just above the waterfall.
We took a full day trip to the Ancient Mayan City of Tikal in Guatemala. Our driver took us to the border and another driver gathered us up after we passed through border customs and immigration. Tikal is immense and somewhat overwhelming for a first-time visitor.
