Fodor's Expert Review The Trek Stop
6 miles (9 km) west of San Ignacio, George Price Hwy. (aka Benque Rd.), near Xunantunich, San José Succotz, Cayo, Belize
After a day spent out and about, a cold Belikin and filling Mexican and Belizean dishes await you at this cluster of neat-as-a-pin cabins on a hilltop near Xunantunich ruins. This lodge is quite the find, particularly for budget travelers, as the basic wood cabins (with solar-heated showers and composting toilets around the corner) are very affordable. Here you can also hike nature trails, visit the Tropical Wings Butterfly Farm, take advantage of the free Wi-Fi, and play Frisbee golf (free for guests). If you want to go to San Ignacio or elsewhere, walk down the hill and flag down a bus or colectivo (collective taxi) on Benque Road.
- top value for the money
- friendly local management
- just a couple of steps up from camping
- location means you'll have to take a bus or taxi to most sights, except Xunantunich
