Paradise

Individual Suites with private patios overlooking the tranquil Macal River. Oversized showers large enough to entertain guests, if you are so inclined! The grounds are immaculate. Owner Tom had us floating down the river within an hour of arrival with 35 toucans passing overhead. Incredible. Tour to Tikal in Guatemala with Elias the next day was outstanding. Meals at Mystic were fabulous. Banana pancakes, fruit plates, exotic smoothies and the Asian shrimp soup with dinner were especially memorable. Our bed was quite comfy. Our traveling companions went birding the next morning, so "Hot Mamacita" Rita Joy and I tried out Sapodilla Waterfalls which was a blast riding jungle paths in the Polaris, hiking with guide Ben Cruz to the falls where we swam and dove and generally acted about 30 years younger than what is shown on my passport! :-) Hiking back we had the thrill of a boa constrictor encounter. Great pix. Joined up with our friends over lunch then did a quick ride in our rental Jeep to Green Hills Butterfly Ranch 7 miles southeasterly through the village of San Antonio for an informative tour of their butterfly terrarium and caterpillar hatching and growth operation. They also have 10 different species of hummingbird that frequent here including a few not yet spotted at Mystic. We finished the day with a relaxing swim in the river with Max (Nadege and Tom's black labrador), before changing and enjoying another gourmet meal. Up early our final day for more banana pancakes (they are that good!) then jumped in the van for an 1.25 hour drive with Ben again to the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) park entrance. Ben pressed the four of us on the jungle trail a bit, but we ended up being the first group in the cave that day which was worth the brisk pace. Fantastic spelunking and archaeological experience that we won't ever forget. We took our time nibbling the packed lunches provided and on the ride back identifying a few more birds for my friends. What a wonderful trip and Mystic River Resort was our favorite place we stayed! Tom has installed a private domestic water well that deserves more than a mention. No "good"/"bad" water concerns to stay on top of like the two other resorts where we stayed. Great owners, great staff, great food and great place. We stayed July 30th through August 3rd.

Mystic River was the highlight of our trip. The location is beautiful; higher up then a lot of the other resorts so its cooler and more temperate. The food is the best we had in Belize and the staff was very personable (Thanks, Leo and Steve!). The accomodations are secure and comfortable. We did the ATM tour from there and our guide, Ben who works for Mystic River, was knowledgeable about ATM and caves in general but also about the history of Mayans in the area and many other topics. The best part of Mystic River is Tom and Nadesh. They are both wonderful people and a pleasure to talk to. Every night, we would spend the hour before dinner chatting with them at their bar and sipping Belikins. I would definitely recommend staying there to any of my friends. Also, if Tom asks if you'd like a ride in his Polaris say YES!!!
