Belize Receives Safe Travels Stamp from World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC)​

Gold Standard Recognition Program.  “The WTTC’s Stamp of Approval is a milestone achievement for Belize, and is truly a strong testament of Belize’s unwavering commitment to an environment which is safe, secure and provides an authentic and meaningful experience to our visitors!” says Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, Hon. Anthony Mahler. The Safe Travels Stamp was developed to restore confidence in travelers and revive the global travel and tourism sectors. It enables travelers to recognize destinations around the world that have adopted health and hygiene protocols that are aligned with the WTTC’s Safe Travels Protocols. Read More



Belize Gem Casita in San Ignacio, Belize

This beautiful rustic cabin-like home is nestled among the native trees of the rainforest, located a short five minute drive from San Ignacio. Our lovely home is on a very private 1/2 acre, with two bedrooms, one bath, and a 300 sq. ft. loft that’s great for kids. The two downstairs bedrooms each have a double bed and the loft has three twin beds. Kitchen and living space are combined and fully equipped to save money on meals. The town of San Ignacio has a wonderful farmers market every Saturday where you can buy native fruits and vegetables that are mostly organically grown. This is a must do while you here!

We are on the grid (running water, electricity, and WiFi)! Beautiful 500 sq. ft. veranda where you can relax drinking the first morning cup of coffee while taking in the breathtaking views of the rainforest! On our property you can enjoy a built-in BBQ, mature fruit trees with mango, coconut, and avocado for the picking.

We are located approximately 1-1/2 hours from Belize City (airport), which is on the coast! We highly recommend renting a 4-wheel-drive vehicle due to mountainous terrain and unpaved roads. We are also 10 miles from the Guatamalan border.

There are so many things to do here, it’s approximately 1 hour 45 minutes to the must see Tikal ruins, and only a 10 minute drive to the Cahel Pech Mayan Ruins in San Ignacio. We have heard rave reviews about the Mayawalk Tour Company where you can book many exciting adventures, such as cave tubing, ziplining, horseback riding, hiking, and canoeing tours, as well as beautiful must-see waterfalls! The coastline has one of the most amazing barrier reefs in the world for your snorkeling pleasure, not to mention the magnificent Blue Hole. 

It’s all here in Belize so you can have it all in a matter of a few hours.
