Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL -

More than three decades ago, film­maker Fran­cis Ford Cop­pola found a dreamy lo­ca­tion in Belize’s rain forest in which to build a fam­ily re­treat. In 1993 Blan­caneaux Lodge, as it would be­come known, opened to trav­el­ers. The Fam­ily Cop­pola Hideaways now of­fers a free night’s stay at the lodge and two other Cen­tral Amer­i­can re­treats for those who want a taste of Cop­pola’s per­sonal par­adise.

The deal: Forbes mag­a­zine once called Tur­tle Inn and Blan­caneaux Lodge in Belize and La Lan­cha in Gu­atemala “the most stylish re­treats in Cen­tral Amer­ica.” “Blan­caneaux Lodge is a 20-room lux­ury hide­away where wa­ter­falls tum­ble into turquoise pools above the jun­gle canopy,” the web­site says. Trav­el­ers who visit Blan­caneaux Lodge this year will re­ceive a fourth night free. Tur­tle Inn of­fers a sixth night free, and La Lan­cha, a third night free. The of­fers are good through Dec. 16.
