Where is the most ideal place in (1)Placencia, (2) Cayo (with a six-year old CHILD)that offers cabanas, thatch roofs, & mosquito nets for the best deal? Any advice based on experience would be highly appreciated!

Check bananabank.com - they have the accomodations you mentioned - not sure if it's the price you want.

In Cayo try Crystal Paradise and/or Clarissa Falls. In Cayo there are usually no biting-bug problems.

Here is a partial quote from a reply I wrote concerning building thatch roof as opposed to concrete.

Quote
Thatch may have a disadvantage at certain times of the year, usually in the wet season more so than the dry season. It can harbor insects and reptiles which like to nest in the thatch such as spiders, various small lizards, and others. It can be quite a surprise to be sharing a bed with a spider or worse.
Hope this helps to answer the "why nots?"

They also do a very good job of keeping the heat in! Not too cool in the summer. I spent a few nights in a loft and it was uncomfortable before about midnite and after 8:00 am. This was right on the beach with the breeze blowing all the time.
We did spend one nite in the cabana at JB's though that was a pleasant experience. Rained a little that nite and the view of the mountians beyond the orange groves was a great view in the morning.
Cheap too, think we only paid $60us for three of us.
Richard :p

in a quiet orchard surrounded garden atmosphere, smith's family farm has a choice of 5 cabins, some with thatch roofs. the one facing the orange grove has thatch roof w/bathroom & fridge indoors & cooking stove & sink on the porch. there's a double bed & roy can add a cot for your kid if you like, tho that makes it a bit tight. it's about 10 minutes walk just outside san ignacio town & is beautiful w/ enclosed private grounds to check out. the owner cooks vegetarian food & has 2 kids & charged $20/night last summer. i stayed there a week & dug it. totally the bargain of my trip.

cheers---

You might also look at Pook's Hill, just a little beyond Belmopan -- turn at Teakettle, Mile 58. Very pleasant thatch cabanas with a Maya ruin on site. It has a great jungle atmosphere and it's not far from the Actun Tunichil Muknal cave. Run by a very nice family.
