Copal Tree Lodge contributed to the development of the concepts of sustainable food production and agritourism, eventually evolving into a world-class destination that welcomes affluent visitors from all over the world. Copal Tree Lodge, winner of Travel & Leisure's "World's Best Award," was constructed on property with a long history that dates back to the Classic Maya period, roughly 600 AD, when the Mayans exploited the Rio Grande river as a vital transportation route to the sea.
Confederates from Texas and Alabama moved to the area in the 1860s to raise cattle, rum, and cane. The "Big Hill" property was finally purchased by Ms. Marie Louise Young, a Confederate descendent born in Belize and the grandmother of our own Captain Jackie Young, who planned to herd cattle and grow cane on 80 acres. She operated a distillery on the property named "Rocky Run Rum" where she manufactured aged and argicole rum until the 1970s. In the middle of our Farm Center, you can still see the old cane press.
El Pescador South, a new fly fishing resort, was built when the land was sold to the proprietors of El Pescador in San Pedro in 2001. Four years later, Todd Robinson bought the current Copal Tree Lodge, a fishing lodge.
