NAME: Blancaneux Lodge
PLACE: San Ignacio, Cayo
PRICE: CAD$240

Francis Ford Coppola purchased Blancaneaux Lodge in 1980 as a family vacation getaway in the middle of the lush Belize jungle. These days, it's an exclusive luxury resort.

"When I first visited Belize, I was searching for the same jungle paradise I'd enjoyed while shooting Apocalypse Now ... I found it tucked in the Maya Mountains." Though Francis Ford Coppola said this about Blancaneaux Lodge, his holiday home converted into a luxury resort in 1993, there's nothing apocalyptic about it. With its 20 spacious villas and cabanas, Blancaneaux Lodge is a serene haven perfect for hiking, swimming, horseback riding, and exploring Mayan culture. (Image courtesy of Kiwi Collection.) less
