Belize & Ambergris Caye Help

Where are there hostels in Belize?

Tina’s Backpackers Adventure Hostel on the beach, Caye Caulker -- Been around for a dozen years, well recommended.

Blue Wave Guesthouse, Caye Caulker, on one of the back streets when high season overflows need it.

Falconview Tourist Backpackers Adventure Hostel, Santa Elena Town. This a clean Spanish Hacienda place, tiled floor, arched rooms, built especial for the hostel customer wanting to save money, place to leave their valuables and a place to headquarter while doing many days of adventures in the Western Belize foothills of the Belize Alps. $9 usa a night in 2007.

Cayo Backpackers Hostel, a new place just opened on the Bullet Tree village road, San Ignacio Town. Regular designed hostel for $10 or $11 usa a night. Take a taxi to get there. On the Bullet Tree village road.

Pedro’s Backpacker Inn, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. 40 beds

Not sure what they charge for dorm beds, but they advertise pizza and a beer bar.

Nature’s Way Guesthouse, Punta Gorda

This is in the Toledo coast district port capital. Advertises as a hotel, but is primitive and rustic. No price available.

Depending on how you define hostel, you could also include a number of other places, including

The Trek Stop in Succotz
This is cabins in the jungle 3 miles outside of the village of Succotz, across from the Mopan River, Xununtanich ruins.

Amigos on Turneffe atoll

Couldn’t find any prices. But advertises fly fishing for the sportsman. Remote area, sometimes mosquitoes and horseflies in that area. Should be right on the shore though. Might have the accomodations of a hostel, but doubt it is, more like a fly fishing niche.

Glovers Reef Resort on Glovers atoll

This has very primitive cabins on the shore on the edge of the reef. But not a hostel in the sense of prices, being $99 to camp with your tent on this small island and $150 to have a very primitive cabin. More of a high end adventure resort than a hostel I would say.

Tobacco Caye on the Barrier Reef

Two or three of the places on Tobacco Caye, including Gaviota and Tobacco Paradise
Tobacco Caye is a photogenic place, the sort of island you see in photographs. Having commercial fished around the country of Belize and dived all my life, I wouldn’t put
Tobacco Caye at the top of fishing places. It’s more of a romantic place, tiny sandy island, coconut trees and clear emerald green water inside the lagoon and blue ocean water outside. You can swim outside, no strong current. The island sits on the side of the channel through the reef.
The island is owned by private people with small lots. Couldn’t find any accomodation prices, but the boat fare from Dangriga Town is $35 each way, to and back in 2007 I hear. 9 or 10 miles depending on weather.

Hummingbird HideAway, near Corozal Town

This is advertised as camping and cabins by the airstrip just out of Corozal town. The price advertised was $28 for a dorm room bed. Some hotel rooms in town are $20 to $25.

Spiritwind Reef Resort, Dangriga (the dorm section)

This one is listed as everything, from Eco Lodge, to Resort, to Hotel and Hostel. It is on the beach in Dangriga Town and no price advertised that we could find, but has private cabanas and a restaurant and can organize all kinds of sea orientated trips to the barrier reef about 10 miles away.

BFREE, Bladen, Toledo

This one has dormitory bunk beds and is advertised more to do with nature research for University and research groups. No prices advertised though. It is in a remote area.

Paradise Vacation Hotel, Placencia village on the Peninsular Couldn’t find anything on this one on the internet.

Backpackers Paradise ( - Sarteneja

We plan to take the boat across to Belize City. Then take the bus to San Ignacio. This is where I need some guidance. As one blog said the bus terminal is in the same building as the Marine terminal. Another says it is a ¼ mile from swing bridge. Fr
