If there's one thing that Belize isn't lacking in, it's beauty. The diverse ecosystem is universally gorgeous, and resorts are regularly in competition to see who can create the most aesthetically pleasing and amenities rich opportunities for their guests. But if you're looking for an amazing resort that won't cost you an arm and a leg, there's no choice quite like Cahal Pech Village Resort in San Ignacio Town.
Cahal Pech Resort does a phenomenal job of splitting the difference between the culture of Belize and the country's natural beauty. The resort itself offers truly breathtaking views of the Belize River Valley, but it's also literally minutes away from the popular town of San Ignacio. Whether you're looking to rub shoulders with the locals or venture out into the jungle, you won't be penned in to just exploring one facet of Belize while you're at Cahal Pech.
And even if you decide you don't want to set foot out of the resort, you can still have a good time. The staff is universally friendly and helpful, and they'll work hard to make sure you have the experience you've always dreamed of. The resort is home to the Ix'Tabai Restaurant, a delicious place to sit down for lunch or dinner that mixes together traditional Belizean sensibilities with modern culinary savvy. The Ix'Tabai employs chefs trained by the Culinary Institute of America, and the dining area offers some of the best restaurant views of the surrounding areas in the region. The bar at the resort offers both local and standard favorites, but you don't have to break the bank to dine here. The Ix'Tabai offers conscientiously priced menu items. The resort is also home to three full-sized pools.
There are a variety of rooms available, and some of them share the same thatched roof cabana-style ambiance. But you'll find everything from regular sized cabanas to expansive honeymoon suites, and they're all reasonably priced. The locally crafted furniture and Maya fabrics that decorate each of the rooms ensure an authentically Belizean experience.
But if you're coming to Belize, you'd be missing out by not seeing as much of the country has to offer as possible. The staff of Cahal Pech offers some in-depth adventure tours that dig into the culture and geography of Belize, but you can also pick from a variety of reasonably priced Belize vacation packages that each focus around a specific theme and include specialized experiences for weddings or honeymoons.
If you're going to visit western Belize, you can't do better than Cahal Pech Village Resort. From the friendly staff to the great location to the full range of amenities, it offers a royal experience on a reasonable budget.
