Ignacio's Beach Cabins

Caye Caulker

Hotel Description
Ignacio?s Cabins were opened in 1978 with just five units, an outhouse, bucket showers and cost BZ $3 a night! While the bathroom situation, number of units, and price has changed, not much else has. The main draw for this accommodation is that each private cabin has its own veranda with a view of the sea. Rooms are basic, hot water may be sporadic and it?s a bit of a walk from the village, but there is a private dock and an artificial reef off the dock for snorkeling. There is a small book collection in the main office for your leisure reading. There are a variety of prices depending on the size and location of the cabin, i.e. front or back and a two night minimum stay is required. These wooden cabanas have survived storms and hurricanes and thousands of budget travelers.

History & Owners
Ignacio Reyes was a fisherman and decided to open up the accommodation in the late 1970's. Ignacio is the grandson of Luciano Reyes, one of the original settlers of Caye Caulker. Today, the hotel is managed by Ignacio?s children, primarily his son Ruben.

Location & Directions
On the Beach, Caye Caulker Village
Ignacio?s is located on the south end of the village just before the mini-reserve and airstrip. From the water taxi dock, follow the path along the beach all the way until you see the purple, stilted cabins. It?s a good 10 to 15 minute walk from the water taxi dock. If you arrive by plane, it?s about a five-minute walk from the airstrip. Your best bet is to walk to the east end of the runway and turn left along the beach path.
