Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge serves a savory selection of Belizean and Caribbean style cuisine all day, every day. Every meal is freshly prepared, including the tasty breads and scrumptious deserts. With the All Inclusive Package, breakfast, lunch, and a three course dinner, and drinks are all included. If you are not on a Package, meals may be purchased a la carte from our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus.
Perched in a tree house in the jungle canopy deep in San Ignacio, the Treehouse Bar is the center of Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge. It’s your first stop in the morning and your last stop before bed. The Treehouse Bar offers everything from non-alcoholic smoothies and fruit juices to Belizean rum and beer. It’s the only place with reliable WiFi and the best place to meet the local wildlife.
Open daily from 6:30am until the guests are ready for bed. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can experience the local flavor with a fruit juice you can’t get at home, like sorrel or carambola (add some local vodka if you’d like), or stick with a smooth traditional Belikin beer. Either way, everyone who comes to Sweet Songs will get the signature Birds of Paradise upon arrival, alcohol optional.
Breakfast (6:30-9 AM)
Breakfast is made fresh daily and includes all the the typical fare you would expect, plus local Belizean favorites like fry jacks, flour or corn tortillas, burritos and huevos rancheros. These dishes are accompanied by refried beans, plantains, and tasty greens with names like callaloo and chaya. Some mornings, guests will get the opportunity for a true cultural experience. These mornings breakfast is served made-to-order from a fogon. A fogon is a Mayan outdoor cooking method that’s still used daily in Mayan households.
Pro Tip #1: Join us each morning between 6:30 and 7:30 AM on the Bird Deck to see the local wildlife up close and personal.
Pro Tip #2: Try a stuffed fry jack - this is flour tortilla dough, deep-fried in coconut oil and stuffed with your choice ingredients. A favorite stuffing is cheddar, cheese, onions, chaya, and scrambled egg.
Lunch (12- 2 PM)
Lunch is served daily at the Treehouse Bar or provided during your excursion. If you’re at the lodge for lunch, try the Belizean Sampler with salbutes, garnaches, and panades. Or our famous quesadilla with cilantro pesto, mozzarella, and feta, it’s a real taste treat. The lunch menu has salads, burgers (fish, chicken or lamb) and an assortment of sandwiches, including eggplant and chicken parmesan. Most of the lunch dishes can be served vegetarian.
Dinner (6:30 - 8:30 PM)
Dinner at Sweet Songs is a three course meal and is different every night. (Don’t worry if you have dietary restrictions, we’ll ask you about those before you even arrive!) You’ll enjoy seasonal dishes and traditional favorites. Indulge your taste buds with savory tropical dishes such as potato chaya soup, calypso chicken, or coconut shrimp. Dine in the open air of the Treehouse Bar, perched in the canopy, or in our enclosed dining room.
