      An absolute gem! Drift Inn Cayo is in a great location in Cayo. I got tours organized to ATM caves and Caracol from reception. Their food and drinks at The Aguada were such good prices! The ambiance was relaxing and staff were so welcoming. Rooms were clean, ac cold, wifi worked well. I stayed at both Drift Inn locations during my stay in Belize and couldn't have asked for a better place as a solo traveler.

      The staff was amazing, the food was delicious, the best in Belize. The internet worked well throughout the entire location. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The pool was very relaxing. The environment was peaceful and very beautiful. The vibe was the best!

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      This is a great little getaway RIGHT outside of San Ignacio. Right off a main road, it is easy to navigate to and park. (I've stayed in San Ignacio and had a nightmare trying to park on the narrow roads and navigate the one-way streets.) The rooms are nice and clean, A/C is cold, hot water in the shower, excellent wifi. It checked all my boxes and more. The scenic view of the pond, delicious food at the restaurant, and sitting areas around the property, made it that much better! 10/10 recommend for affordable and convenient spot to base yourself in Cayo.

      rustic motel just outside downtown

      This is a basic, very rustic motel outside san ignacio, 2 hour drive from belize airport. $5-7 belize/$2.50-3.50US cab ride downtown. Cabins on porch could be loud from traffic or early morning birds. There is a bar and restaurant on site that’s reasonably priced. All staff pleasant and accommodating.

      OK hotel in Belize City

      Usually I would not even book a hotel in Belize City. There is too much crime and problems there. This hotel has guarded parking and is somewhat close to the airport - about 20 minutes. However, the beds were very hard (more than just firm). The rooms and amenities are very basic. While not terrible, when I return, I would likely look for a better hotel.

      Very comfortable stay!!

      The Aguada has spacious rooms, free wifi and is clean. Santa Elena is a quiet town that is very close the San Ignacio tourist hub. If you want a quiet night's stay, this is the place! The food at the restaurant at the Aguada is excellent.
