June 18, 2008

Looking at blog stats, this has been one of the most popular posts. But has anyone actually stayed here? Let me know!

Travel Belize Like a Bird: Stay in a Treehouse

Parrot Nest BelizeWhen you travel you spend your long days walking and sightseeing, overwhelmed by new foods and faces and sounds and smells. So at night, don’t you want to get away, or even above it all?

The Parrot Nest Jungle Lodge in Belize will give you a relaxing night’s sleep, and a chance to see some local wildlife up close during the day. Prices are higher than a typical hostel, but more affordable than most hotels.

Belize is a great destination for adventure travelers, with plenty of options for kayaking, scuba diving, zip lining, horseback riding, cave tubing, mountain biking, fishing, and more, so there’s plenty to look forward to besides sleeping in a tree. On the cultural side, there are Mayan ruins to explore, and the origins of chocolate to rediscover.

Sleeping Is the Adventure in Treehouse Hostels

December 28, 2007

Once you’ve had enough pampering in a castle hostel, get back to nature with a night or two in a treehouse hostel. Here’s what some of the best in the world have to say about themselves:

Hostel in the ForestBrunswick, Georgia, USA:The Hostel in the Forest has operated as an International Youth Hostel for 32 years. We are world renowned for our geodesic domes and 9 tree houses, which were built and have been sustained entirely by volunteers. The Hostel sits on 120 acres of forest and wetlands, 2 miles from H.W.95 in Brunswick, Georgia. It is located short distances from the famous “Golden Isles” of St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. There are also many prisitne coastal barrier islands including the famous Cumberland National Seashore close by.” (Have a look at their photo gallery.)

Mission BeachMission Beach, Australia: “The Treehouse YHA at Mission Beach is a truly unique backpacker hostel. This spacious, island-style, pole-framed timber building is nestled in lush rainforest. The YHA hostel features lofty ceilings and a sundeck overlooking a stunning pool area. Backpackers can enjoy sun lounges, hammocks on shaded verandahs, regular BBQ meals, the latest international newspapers and magazines, a great little library, CD player, board games… and the hostel has NO TV!”

KadirOlympos, Turkey:Kadir’s Tree Houses now has two bars, serving guests from lunch until the last guest leaves, and a 150 seat seafood restaurant and snack bar. With its unspoilt scenery and fascinating Lycian history, this part of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday.
