Location

San Ignacio, Cayo District, Belize

We are located A mere 15-20 minute walk to Cahal Pech Maya Ruins and the Iguana Sanctuary, the famous Xunantunichruins is less than 8 miles away !

There’s plenty to do and see in San Ignacio but the town is most popularly used as a base for exploring all of the local attractions including the Mayan ruins of Caracol, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech, the ATM Cave, Barton Creek Cave, the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, zip lining, and Tikal just over the border in neighbouring Guatemala.

Originally a small village of logging camps and chicle farmers, San Ignacio and its twin town of Santa Elena have grown to become a thriving metropolitan area in the western part of the country. Close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tikal just over the border in Guatemala as well as several of Belize’s most prominent Mayan ruins, San Ignacio is a popular tourist destination.
San Ignacio is one of Belize’s most diverse urban areas, with Mestizos, Creoles, Lebanese, Mennonite and Chinese indigenous populations calling the area home.
San Ignacio is the de facto capital of the western Cayo District. Along with its twin town Santa Elena, San Ignacio is built on the banks of the Macal River and form the second-largest municipal district in the country after Belize City.

The family home is 'on site' , and we live here all year round, you'll be pleased know we never leave the property unattended, and at least one of us is always on site, so you know your safe and there is always a friendly face around should you have questions or need assistance etc. All our accommodations are registered with BTB (Belize Tourist Board) which means we have to meet rigorous standards, so you can be assured our properties meet the required safety and building regulations, have the relevant public liability insurance etc. and of course we pay have paid our taxes ! When considering accommodation in Belize please ask if they are registered with the BTB, for you own protection and piece of mind, also it actually is a legal requirement, don't support illegal operators, if in doubt ask for their registration number.

During your stay
Hummingbird is uniquely sited on over a acre of ground that includes three other cabins and the owners house. Layout of properties is such that you have plenty of privacy, but should you require any assistance or advice there is always a family member to assist.

So what makes Hummingbird Rest special (or any of our other 3 cottages, Sanpopo, Iguana Roost and Compass Cottage) ?

Is it the setting – over a acre of sub tropical gardens, once described by a council official as a 'jungle in town', the vast number of butterflies, birds and iguana's that visit the garden or maybe because we have our own Cat Sanctuary ?

The location – Out of town, but close enough to walk (or a US$2.50 cab ride), under a mile to Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins, less than 8 miles to Xunantunich Mayan Ruins, The ATM caves and Mountain Pine Ridge are less than 30 miles away, and close enough to Guatamala for a day trip to Tikal.

The accommodation – private and fully equipped, so should you want to cook yourself and dine 'al fresco' on your decking / balcony everything you need is right there. The complimentary cookies, nuts, coffee and tea waiting when you check in, or the fact they we supply more and better quality towels than most Airbnb's , hotels and resorts, or just the simple things like unlimited purified drinking water (even though our tap water in safe to drink), complimentary ear plugs – nature can sometimes be noisy, as you will discover with the parrot's visit at 5am

Your hosts – always there to meet and greet you when you arrive, carry your luggage and show you around your accommodation (no finding a key hidden somewhere, or waiting for the hosts to turn up), a family member is always on site, so should you have any questions (places to visit, tour bookings etc.) we are available and there to help, the property is never left unattended so if security is your thing, your covered

Peace Of Mind – we are registered with the Belize Tourist Board, although it is a legal requirement more than 50% of Belize's Airbnb's are not registered, being registered means, amongst many other things we have been inspected by various parties and the accommodation itself meets a certain standard, which includes fire safety checks, building inspections (electrical, gas, plumbing etc.) That the premises has public liability insurance, and of course being registered means we are paying the appropriate taxes (which benefits the people of Belize - we do not hide from our responsibilities)

Or simply the fact that there are over 600 very positive reviews on Airbnb alone (many more on other platforms)
There is a reason why people say it's the best Airbnb they have stayed in – Read The Reviews
