Car: Recommended

Located just fifteen minute walk from San Ignacio town centre and the famous 'touristy' Burns Avenue, alternatively a twenty minute walk will have you at the Cahal Pech Maya Ruins dating back to at least 400bc.

We are also mere 15-20 minute walk to the Iguana Sanctuary and the famous Xunantunich is less than 8 miles away !

The town of San Ignacio is an excellent base for day trips, however, the river with surrounding countryside, with hills, farms, streams and forest are equally inviting , and there are many ways to enjoy them - on foot, by boat or even on horseback


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: We visited earlier this year and stopped on the property, it was love at first sight and a few months later we purchased the actual site and the family moved in. Between the four of us we have we have a vast amount of experience in hospitality and customer service gained on 3 different continents and as we live on site you can be assured their is a always a family member around should you ever need us. Kayleigh the youngest of us (25yrs) is a fully qualified child care specialist and has various certificates, qualifications & diploma's relative to child care, so if you are traveling with a young one, you know they will be in safe hands should you require a sitter. We are eco friendly and are constantly looking at ways of operating that are less stressful on the planet, but without compromising our guests comforts.

Why the Owner Chose San Ignacio, Belize:
Iguana Roost is unique in that it gives you the comforts of your own private self catering cabin, which includes your own bathroom with shower, your own fully equipped kitchen as well as your own verandah all ready for alfresco dining - All For A Price You Would Expect At A Back Packers Lodge. Whats more stay for a month of more and get a further discount, you will not find better at this price

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Your away from the crowds and surrounded by nature, but San Ignacio Town Centre and the famous Burns Avenue with it's bars and restaurants are only a fifteen minute walk (or US$2.50 by taxi) San Ignacio is the hub of commerce and tourism for western Belize, and together with its sister town – Santa Elena – make up the largest populated area in Cayo District with over 20,000 residents. Located along the banks of the Macal River, on a series of bluffs, San Ignacio and Santa Elena are at an elevation high enough to be noticeably cooler and less humid than the low-lying coastal plains. Due to it's higher elevation and lower humidity San Ignacio has few mosquitoes and none of the pesky sand flies found in the coastal regions San Ignacio visitors can actually walk to the impressive Maya site of Cahal Pech. Perched atop a hill just a mile from town, it rewards the 15-minute hike with a panoramic view of San Ignacio and the Belize River Valley. A museum and visitors center displays Maya artifacts, open 8 am. to 5 p.m. Bullet Tree Road leads to the 100 acre, archaeological reserve of El Pilar, which means “Water Basin” the site of an annual celebration of Maya culture each April. Hike or ride horseback to a pair of fascinating sinkholes. Resorts on the Benque Viejo Road, offers guided night jungle walks to observe nocturnal plants and animals. Maya guides demonstrate how sap is extracted from the sapodilla tree, source of chicle.​
