I have done a little traveling (151 countries) in the past 15 years and and have never come across a better hotel for value than Hotel De La Fuente in Orange Walk, Belize. No I am not kidding! In room amenities like TV, fridge, AC, coffee maker, and modern bathroom make staying here a very pleasant experience. Yes it is very clean, has very friendly,efficient staff, and Orlando and Cyndi, the owners, treat you like family. At least that is how I felt for the three nights I stayed there. They are genuinely concerned that you have an enjoyable stay in their hotel. And they accept credit cards. Although there is no restaurant, there are several a short walk away.
Cyndi and Orlando are extremely well connected throughout the area and can book tours to the Mayan ruin sites and just about anything else you can think to do. Cyndi makes all the arrangements and books all the tours. I told her what I wanted to do and she made it all happen. Now that was a relaxing vacation.
As you may know, Belize is a third world country, but has the charm of a very noble culture with much to offer the lucky tourists who venture there. When you visit Orange Walk, you already know where to stay, Hotel De La Fuente.
