My partner and I travelled to the Cayo district in May 2010 to explore the area and were pleasantly surprised to find the Gumbo Limbo Village Resort which is a beautiful oasis in the midst of the Jungle.
The owners Mike, Jenny, Steve, Joyce & Megan have created an absolutely wonderful resort Village which is definitely 4 star quality at 3 star prices. The resort has 4 Cabanas each housing 2 or 1 double bed with quality fittings and furnishings. The swimming pool is a nice touch and does seem to consume both Mike and Steve's time ensuring it is clean and well maintained, as this is a nice area to relax after visiting both Santa Elena and San Ignacio towns.
I would recommend a visit even though it is a little hidden on the top of a hill, but it will be well worth it as the food, beer, rum, and the atmosphere are all fantastic.
