Located on the outskirts of town within easy walking distance, this is a great choice for visitors to San Ignacio. It's run by a really friendly family who make you feel most welcome. Tranquil location surrounded by gardens which used to operate as a campsite.

Except for the roosters that started crowing at midnight (and didn't stop until dawn), this place was great. The rooms were very clean and the owner is super helpful with everything. The location is also great. The yard is beautiful and it is only a few minutes walk from downtown San Ignacio. I would definitely stay there again.

We came from Belize City to San Ignacio to see the Maya sites. As it is not a 1-day-trip and as we wanted to be early at the sites, we needed a hotel to stay for a night. This hotel was a good choice. Clean and fresh room, very friendly and helpful staff. Also laid back a bit, so very...

We stayed at the River Park Inn on a one-night stopover from Tikal to Belize City. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and everything was nice and quiet. While the Inn is a little bit (a half-mile or so) outside of the town, it was still convenient to dining and the outdoor market, and really the walk into town only...

There are lots of benefits to staying here - clean rooms, close proximity to restaurants and shops, good prices - but by far the best benefit is the friendly and helpful family who owns the inn. The owners are kind, resourceful, and ready to resolve any issues you may have during your trip. My husband and I had a great...

For $50, it was fantastic. Big rooms, great A/C, very clean, great people, nice deck, warm shower. We would stay here again. Some improvements: Bathroom faucet was loose TV volume had to blast it to hear it

I found the hotel online and was pleasantly surprised to see that it looks better in person than the photos I found. It is on the edge of town, but within walking distance of the city center where everything happens in San Ignacio. The upstairs area where the rooms are located is beautifully tiled with great views of the property...

Loved this place - Bing and his family are very sweet and helpful! We stayed in a Cabana which was very new, good value and slightly further from the noise and main block - amaze! Ask him a little about his life - you will be amazed. Unless you're Gandhi.

The rooms are basic and clean so nothing bad about that. A bit on the pricy side compared to what you get. Note: if you're looking for a quiet retreat, this is not it. Too bad because there are plenty of birds to listen to. The walls are paper thin so you will hear everything your neighbors are doing and...

Beautiful hotel, conveniently located at a 10-min walk from the center, very quiet, very clean. The owners were very kind and helpful (we arrived quite late at night). Our room was bright, with rocking chairs on the terrace, to enjoy the view and relax. Note that if you want to pay by Credit card, there will be an extra charge...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
River Park Inn: Midst coconuts, mangoes, avocados, bananas, custard apples, limes, and a profusion of other fruit trees as mouth-wateringly tropical; with bougainvillea, poinsettia, and a host of other flowering eye candy enticing you as sweetly; the while that your olfactory nerves are in a delirious transport for the frangipani infusing the warm tropic air, yourself quite as balmy, you could easily be convinced you’re in a lovely botanical garden miles from the city. But that’s, of course, before you dreamily take to the air yourself upon the wildly delightful river "walk," floating atop a broad carpet of green, flanked by stately, giant leafed teak trees, to the accompanying symphony of parakeets, parrots, and such like avians of the torrid zone. These, naturally, lead you into a welcoming grove of larger, leafier leviathans, beneath whose canopy you continue to float in a blissful transport, arriving in due course at the riverbank, above which you hover in the dappled light, gazing rapturously down at the river. As the tall, willowy, delicate-leafed bamboo rubs shoulders with you in the most amiable way, a thought creeps in: Why, if I don’t believe it loves the water, too! (At this idyllic point you will be moved to upwardly adjust your hasty first impression as high up on the favorable scale as comports with your current soaring emotion. Don’t worry. Long experience has taught us to factor this anticipated adjustment into your scheduled stay, and we’ve allowed ample time for its completion. You won’t miss out on a single programmed sensory fulfillment. What is equally beautiful, though, is that Belizean-family-owned Cosmos Camping, 10 lush acres of the "Savannah" on the peacefully flowing Macal River, and right on the edge of picturesque San Ignacio Town, "Gateway to the Cayo District," could not be more ideally positioned. So situated, you will forcefully have to remind yourself, if able, that you are just a 10-minute walk to the open-air farmer’s market, adjacent to the bustling downtown core, and so but a hop, step, and a jump from the post office, library, all four Belizean banks, and the many and various shops, restaurants, and pulsating nightlife, as well as bus service to all points in Belize and to the Guatemalan border 10 scenic miles west; yet, having returned, your arms full of Belizean fare for ridiculously few Belize dollars, you’re just far enough from its bustle to relax and be soothed with little more than the sounds of nature . . . or no sounds at all. Yet, if you hunger for more, however unlikely, you need but take a short stroll over the narrow Hawkesworth Bridge, Belize’s only suspension bridge (with time out to stop and admire the riparian view and to gaze once more on the Macal River, itself looking forward to soon meeting the Mopan River to become the Belize River, and to continue flowing on, as it’s done since time out of mind, to Belize City and the Sea). When you’re finished reflecting, you need but continue some dreamy paces more to find yourself in San Ignacio’s equally hilly sister town, Santa Elena. Do climb its charmingly verdant hills and admire the view. However, that being said, if you’ve yet to get here, especially if you dawdle along the way, you can’t rightfully expect everything to be as so idyllically described. Time waits for no guest; it marches on. Things change. So you might wish to take a moment now to prepare yourself for the shock of finding, in place of old Coronation Park, the spanking new 2.5-acre, $3,000,000BZ Cayo Welcome Center, replete with visitors’ center, museum, open-air plaza with central water feature, food outlets and restaurants, live music and crafts, palm and other shade trees, invitingly green lawn areas, and off-street parking. Also, expect to find that the whole connects via a short walkway, not to the old congested Burns Avenue, with parked cars milling about, hogging up space, leering at comely drivers, and leaving barely enough room for buses and large trucks to noise and fume their way through at top speed in order to better run down hapless jaywalkers. No, expect to leisurely stroll the newly revitalized, ever-so-spacious Burns Avenue Pedestrian Mall, in which, gone the way of the ancient Maya, are the parked cars, and the buses and large trucks fuming noisily somewhere else about having their traditional custom taken away from them; and in place of the customary flattened pedestrians, expect to see upright, three-dimensional ones, actually moving a muscle, equating to walking about leisurely, without the least fear of losing their other two dimensions; when they’re not seated, that is, at one or another of the new thoughtfully provided seating areas, admiring the new street surfacing beneath their feet, the ambiance-enhancing plant life, all beneath spiffily illuminating street lamps by night, that are nonetheless by day so attractive unilluminated as to have you, in turn, cast your admiring eye shine upon them. ... more   less
