FREE-NIGHT DEAL IN COPPOLA’S CENTRAL AMERICAN HIDEAWAYS
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.
