As the famed saying goes, ‘The early bird catches the worm!’ And we’ll tell you – San Ignacio Resort Hotel recognizes just that. Why not discover birding, or at least play the part of a snowbird, in Belize with their early bird special for November and December 2020 bookings? This award-winning boutique hotel is situated in the Cayo district at the heart of San Ignacio town. Besides, the San Ignacio Resort Hotel is now recognized as a Belize Gold Standard Certified Hotel approved to reopen during Belize’s Safe Corridor in its Travel Reopening Plan.  This means international travelers to Belize are able to stay here, as the hotel has achieved Belize’s Tourism Gold Standard Certification.

With only 27 rooms situated over the 17-acre estate, this is urban social distancing at its best. In addition to the small number of rooms, guests can take advantage of all the on-property amenities, like the outdoor swimming pool and tennis court. On-site dining at Running W Restaurant is some of the best in San Ignacio and features meats from the family ranch.  There is also a lobby bar for sundowners for casual drinks and dining.
