— Excerpt From The Vancouver Sun —
The lively town of San Ignacio is in the heart of the lush Cayo district, which boasts over 880,000 acres of protected land. Towering mountains, rushing rivers, waterfalls, jungle forests and ancient Maya temples and ceremonial caves draw visitors to Cayo.
The San Ignacio Resort, overlooking its namesake town, is situated on a 17-acre estate along the Macal River. The family-run hotel, committed to the conservation of the threatened green iguana, created the Iguana Project 15 years ago to educate Belizeans and visitors on the importance of protecting the ecological balance of the river habitat.
The lush jungle backdrop is also a haven for birds, and more than 175 species including toucans, parrots, cuckoos and tanagers have been spotted from the hotel's dining balcony. Book a three-night romance package and stay in the resort's penthouse Honeymoon Suite overlooking the Macal River Valley.
In addition to your premier suite you'll receive champagne upon arrivals, breakfast and dinner daily, a couples' Aromatherapy Massage and one full and half-day tour.
