Is it our pristine environment and unique blend of Caribbean and Central American traditions and culture? Or is it the Creole, East Indian, Garifuna, Mayan, and Mestizo influences? Perhaps it's our sea and jungles, our rivers, islands, and lagoons, where endangered species like the harpy eagle, jaguar, toucan and howler monkey, still thrive in their native habitats? If you are drawn to natural environments, cultural melting pots, and diverse sea and land adventures, vacation in Belize at Calico Jack's Village.

If you're drawn to Belize for an authentic cultural experience, Calico Jack's invites you to make our unique Caribbean jungle and mountain resort your home base for your Belize vacation. If you like rustic elegance yet informality, excellent service and the best of local and vegetarian cuisine, come to Calico Jack's!

Calico Jack’s is located deep in the heart of the vibrant village of El Progresso, Cayo, a farming village, on a 365-acre private jungle reserve about 16 miles from San Ignacio Town. CJV’s location in the Mountain Pine Ridge region of central Belize provides privacy and intimacy and the sights, sounds, and sensations of a tropical rainforest for overnight guests.

Calico Jack’s intimate and engaging full-service jungle resort is best known for its first-class personalized, exhilarating and safe zip line tours available to both daytime explorers and overnight guests.

And for families of all ages, we offer spacious and stylish two and three bedroom/2 bathroom villas with kitchenettes, internet and cable TV. Calico Jack’s elegant poolside-restaurant offers excellent cuisine including Belizean and vegetarian specialties to local and foreign guests alike. Inquire also about our Family Vacation Packages.
