We loved, loved, loved our stay at Iguana Junction! We were super close to booking elsewhere as we weren't aware that Bullet Tree Falls had accommodation ... I'm glad we stumbled across this gem on TripAdvisor. Dawn, Colin, and their adorable german shepard Kahn, were all incredible hosts and we so look forward to returning in the near future.
The property is a little slice of paradise; as there are only four rooms the place never feels overrun with people and there is always a quiet opportunity to take in the views (or nap!) out on the porch or swing in a hammock. The rooms are cheerful, clean and cozy.
One of the main highlights of our stay was a wonderful sit down dinner we had on the property (cooked by Colin!) where we were joined by four other lodge guests. We had a lovely dinner reflecting on each of our excursions in San Ignacio and past travel adventures. Great food, great company, and copious Belikens!
Some of the guide books might discourage you from staying a few miles outside of San Ignacio ~ but I think its totally worth it! You might pay a bit more in transportation, but I promise you'll find the taxi rides offer humorous insight into the political reality of Belize. Just ask your taxi driver about the condition of the road! Plus Colin is super kind and is happy to offer a ride into town in the morning if he is heading in on errands ~ just ask!
In addition the spectacular property, what really makes this place memorable is the hospitality. Dawn and Colin are the best!
