This was close to San Ignacio but off down a 1.5 mile rugged road that made you feel like you were way back in the jungle. We wanted to stay close to this area so we could go to Xunantunich and some local attractions. My...More

About the neighborhood
Located West of the vibrant and expanding community of San Ignacio Town (3 miles), Xunantunich (5 miles), one of the most popular ruins in Belize, Buena Vista Ruins (1mile), and the Mopan River(1.5 miles), there is plenty to do and see during your stay in Belize. Avana Villa is also located in an area known as the hotel district, so you are just minutes away from massages, fantastic meals, jungle tours, horseback riding and more! Transportation to the Villa is available via rental car, shuttle, or taxi. During your stay, Belize has an extensive taxi and bus system, which can be reached on the Western Highway, a short 1.5 mile walk from the Villa. Most taxis will pick you up at the villa, if you ask them to, although cell phone reception here is challenging and you may not always be able t...
How to get there
Getting to Avana from San Ignacio easy. Coming through town on the western hwy heading towards Benque you will come to the last traffic circle. There is an UNO gas station on the left and a grocery store on the right. From the Uno we are 1.5 miles to a gravel road on the right. There is a sign for Avana, one for La Primavera and one that says Misty Meadows! Turn right onto gravel road and come 1.5 mile to the big white gates. Voila! See map as well All guest should check in before 8PM!
