This site is created by and for the people of San Antonio Village, Cayo, Belize...


San Antonio Village, your introduction to the Adventure Capital of Belize and the Heart of Cayo, central to numerous travelers’ destinations and home to the diversity of the jungle, Maya Mountains and the Pine Ridge Forest.  San Antonio is located in the lush "broadleaf forest" ecosystem, popularly called the jungle. Just five miles drive will take you to the entrance of the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, a totally different ecosystem called “upland savannah”.

A 40 mile drive from San Antonio will take you to Caracol, the greatest excavated Mayan archaeological site in Belize, along with myriad birds, flora, fauna, ceremonial caves, waterfalls, spectacular vistas, hundreds of species of domestic and migratory birds, and two distinctly different ecosystems between the broadleaf forest of the jungle and the upland savannah within the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve.

You will enjoy some of the best food in Belize.

This website was initially sponsored by the Mountain Pine Ridge Association (“MPRA”), an unincorporated association established in 2009 of hoteliers, tour operators, restaurateurs and others to work together to enhance public awareness of the area’s attractions, and to support the local villages in improving safety and environment.  While the association is no longer active, Mariposa Jungle Lodge, the first and only Luxury Lodge in San Antonio, realized the need to host and maintain this website while keeping the Association’s initial objectives and goals in mind.
