The San Ignacio Resort Hotel is the premier full-service resort property in San Ignacio town, the heart of the Cayo District, 75 miles west of Belize City. Perched above the lush Macal River Valley, the resort boasts incredible views of rainforest and wildlife from each of its 24 deluxe air-conditioned rooms. These lavish retreats, some with their own secluded balcony, wrap you in four-star comfort and feature grand entryways, private tiled baths, cable television, telephone, and Internet connection. Did we mention the refreshing pool with the jungle view?
While there are numerous adventures to choose from at our tour desk, on-site resort activities include a system of nature trails that leisurely wind through our private 14-acre jungle preserve and riverside beach. These trails offer easy access to more than 100 species of plants and trees and 70 species of birds, as well as other wildlife including gibnut, agouti, armadillo and the endangered green iguana.
Our tour desk can arrange visits to such major Mayan archeological sites as Cahal Pech, Xunantunich, El Pilar, Caracol, or to sites in neighboring Guatemala. Other activities include canoeing, caving, bird watching, and horseback riding and even visiting San Ignacio's own Farmer's Market. So, come experience what we like to call "the only jungle in town."
