The Iguana Reef Inn is located on Caye Caulker which is the second largest of Belize’s islands, situated just one mile from the barrier reef which is the second largest in the world. This luxury inn has one of the few fresh water swimming pools on the island but is still in easy access to the sea.
The Iguana Reef Inn is situated in the heart of the island’s village which is 21 miles from Belize City on the mainland. With the reef and the Caribbean Sea so close, the Inn’s location is ideal for any water activities but yet close enough to the mainland to also partake in some of the adventures that the mainland has to offer.
All the accommodations at the Iguana Inn are spacious, yet cosy, have both air conditioning and ceiling fan, tiled floors and in-room safes. The wide variety of choice for rooms include Parkside Standard, Ocean/Poolside Standard, Parkside Queen Deluxe, Ocean/Poolside Queen Deluxe, Parkside King Suite, Ocean/Poolside King Suite, Garden Cabana or Ocean View penthouse which occupies the entire floor of the seaside building and has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, spacious living and dining areas and a full kitchen.
Food & Dining
The Inn has no restaurant but provides complimentary continental breakfasts by the poolside and is ideally located for access to many of the island’s best restaurants. The Inn does have the Iguana Reef Bar which has an impressive array of drinks and cocktails including over 20 different rums.
The Inn has a freshwater pool and private beach and loungers and hammocks are available for those that want to relax under the tropical sun. Its central location is perfect for easy access to the restaurants and to the hot spots of the island’s night life. A wide variety of activities and tours can be arranged by the Inn’s friendly staff.
Staff & Service
The staffs are friendly and helpful and will work hard to fulfill the Inn’s mission of ensuring a guest’s stay on Caye Caulker is a memorable one.
Being located on a beach leading to the Caribbean Sea and just a mile away from the western hemispheres largest barrier reef, water activities often take up much of the guest’s time with fishing, snorkeling and diving or perhaps just relaxing and swimming in the clear warm waters.
For those that also want to enjoy some adventures on dry land, Belize can also provide those. Some of the tours to the mainland include visits to Mayan ruins, zip lining through the canopy of the country’s rainforests, cave tubing and treks through the jungle.
Although Caye Caulker has less tourists than its’ larger and more famous neighbor Ambergris Caye, it has access to the same waters and reef, plus is closer to the mainland. The fewer tourist on Caye Caulker fits in nicely with its laid back atmosphere which it is renowned for and with Caye Caulker’s motto being “Go Slow”, it probably appeals to many visitors wishes for a relaxing and tranquil vacation.
