Belize is quickly becoming the de facto travel destination for those in the know, and San Ignacio Town continues to be the Caribbean nation’s best-kept secret. Nestled at the entrance to Belize’s wild and untamed Cayo District, it’s an ideal base camp for adventure — but it still maintains a distinct and friendly small-town vibe in a way that many beach and island towns in the country simply don’t. And if you ask any of the friendly residents what the best hotel in town is, you will find one answer that dominates: San Ignacio Resort Hotel.
A Place of Adventure
If you’re the type of traveler who wants to plunge into everything a new environment has to offer, you couldn’t pick a better place to stay than San Ignacio. The Cayo District is rich with natural beauty, and that’s why the ancient Mayas chose it as their seat of power in the country. The Maya architectural sites are abundant, and they vary from the towering temple of Xunantunich to the ancient and well-heeled city of Caracol. Even the Cayo District’s natural landmarks have ties to the Mayas — like ATM Cave, once a place where human sacrifice was performed. Whether you’re looking for a high-octane adventure like zip lining and rafting or more sedate activities like tours of temples and bird watching, the staff at San Ignacio Resort Hotel can set you up with an itinerary perfect for your needs.
But Also a Place to Recuperate
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with just spending your vacation kicking back and relaxing — and San Ignacio Resort Hotel is designed to accommodate that as much as possible. Each of our accommodations has its own unique view of surrounding nature, and you can really enjoy that view when you make use of the in-room wellness treatments. You could hypothetically have the time of your life without even leaving the hotel property. The trails on the property offer a way to see the wildlife up close and personal, and San Ignacio Resort Hotel is even home to the Iguana Conservation Project. A full tennis court and pool are also on the property, and the trails host everything from birdwatching to tea tasting tours.
The Escape You Deserve
The most important thing is that you have the time of your life, and you can trust the staff to accommodate your every whim. Vacations are a necessary release valve in our busy work lives, and Belize’s idyllic weather means that you can have a little piece of paradise whenever you decide to visit. Give yourself the break you need so you can return home ready to live your life to its fullest.
