Blancaneaux Lodge is in the Mountain Pine Ridge. In Belizean usage, "ridge" refers not to a geographical feature but the kind of trees common in that area, and around Blancaneaux it is a pine tree, the Mountain Pine, which is closely related to the Caribbean Pine.
So, this is not jungle as you would think of it -- in many ways it looks like North Alabama -- but don't be fooled: This is the subtropics and there are orchids growing on the trees (and on the thatch roofs of cabanas at Blancaneaux, beautiful waterfalls, coffee and bananas growing around Blancaneaux, scorpians and tarantulas and even some fer de lances).
If you want to go to "real" broadleaf jungle, you can drive toward Caracol an hour or so into the Chiqibul wildnerness or go south a little. Not too far from Blancaneaux is an escarpment which separates the pine ridge and broadleaf bush areas.
Blancaneaux is beautiful, especially the villas and the grounds.
