Sparkling mountain streams, lush tropical wilderness, and the height of indulgent luxury: It’s a combination out of a daydream, but you’ll find the reality at Blancaneaux Lodge. Nestled in a forgotten corner of the stunning Maya Mountains in the heart of Belize, the 20-room resort is the brainchild of film director and bon vivant Francis Ford Coppola, who fell in love with the then-abandoned facility when he first visited in the ‘80s. What was once a true paradise lost is now brilliantly found, complete with its own organic gardens — which supply ingredients for much of the food at Blancaneaux’s restaurants — a waterfall spa and equestrian stables; Starting at $255 per night, CoppolaResorts.com.
