5. Machaca Hill, Toledo, Belize
Nestled inside an 11,000-acre private nature reserve in the southernmost tip of Belize is a coveted rainforest retreat called Machaca Hill. If you like your orange juice freshly squeezed from the oranges grown on the property or prefer aromatherapy that emanates from the hibiscus flowers planted in your treehouse room, then this is the place for you. Machaca goes out of its way to reduce the travel imprint by using local food and local staff. What you get in return is a lush green canopy, rich with adventures and Mayan ruins. You're also close to the ocean for snorkeling and scuba diving excursions. Fly into Punta Gorda, an hour-long flight from Belize City. Rates start at $850 a night including all meals, excursions, food, beer, and rum.
