If you're heading out for the full day, we can recommend great restaurants. If you're coming back to have dinner here, don't forget to make your reservations and select your meal choice before you go.
Birding and Nature Tours
If birding is your thing you won't have to go very far to see some of Belize's feathered beauties. We have many right here at Gumbo Limbo. However we can also make recommendations for other birding and nature walk sites or send you out with some local professional guides to maximize your experience.
The Belize Zoo is also worth the stop. A very different kind of zoo where the animals and birds are all native to the country and many are rescues from otherwise disastrous situations.
San Ignacio Public Market
A few miles away in the vibrant town of San Ignacio, the Market operates 7 days a week. The most excitement happens on Saturdays when there are many food vendors and there is lots of activity going on in the area known as the Welcome Center.
The bountiful local produce stands are a sight to behold! Pick up some fresh fruit for a picnic or try a local lunch from one of the many food vendors.
Everything about the stay was absolutely fantastic. It's tucked away in the jungle, with phenomenal views and even better people. I'm looking forward to my next stay there already!
