The Space*This is one of two Air BnB listings we have. This listing is for a private room with two double beds; the other listing ("Farm Stay - Private Bunk Bed Room") is for a private room with two large beds that can sleep up to 4 adults if 2 people share a bed. Both have private bathrooms. **Please note that I (Suzi) manage the online bookings for Airbnb, but your actual host will be Santiago Juan, the owner and operator of the cottages. There are a total of 10 unique and comfortable cottages on the property; each cottage can accommodate single travelers or groups of up to 4 adults. There is also a large dining area and veranda, as well as an enclosed indoor studio and large yard spaces. The property surrounding the cottages is a working farm with domestic cattle and horses, as well as beautiful wild birds and a host of organic fruits and vegetables. Guest AccessWe also offer optional meals and activities, both of which can be paid for as you go in cash or credit. Please let us know in advance if you would be interested in any of these. Price for breakfast is $5USD per person and $10USD per person for dinner. Nabitunich offers spectacular views of Xunantunich from afar, as well as easy access to rolling pastures, nature hikes, the Mopan river, and the nearby towns of Benque Viejo and San Ignacio. In addition to horseback riding, Hanna Stables offers a wide array of outdoor activities that will thrill nature lovers of all ages. Activities are arranged to suit your preferences and itinerary, ranging from horse riding, swimming, birding or taking a leisurely walk on one of our nature trails. Exotic gardens surround the cottages of Nabitunich, which provide the perfect setting to witness a spectacular sunset behind Xunantunich. Please contact us to find out about booking tours, on-site meals, and transportation. Interaction with GuestsThe owner, Santiago Juan, is often busy throughout the day working on the farm or leading horseback riding tours, but he will join guests for a meal. Visitors are also welcome to book a horseback riding tour with Santiago (highly recommended!) to ride around the San Lorenzo Farm, or take an exotic ride to the famous Xunantunich Mayan ruins. The NeighborhoodOur cottages are located about a 10 minute drive away from the popular Xunantunich Mayan ruins. Other nearby ruins include Caracol, El Pilar, ATM Cave and more. Every weekend, there is a farmer's market that happens in downtown San Ignacio and makes for a great activity for visitors. There are also other attractions such as a butterfly farm, cave tubing, visiting the Belize Zoo, and more. Getting AroundIt is possible to walk from our property to downtown San Ignacio or San Jose Succotz, but it's a little far. We can easily arrange for a taxi to come pick you up, or the public bus runs right in front of the property. Visitors who drive over with cars will have private parking on the premises. Other Things to NotePlease note that we are located in a semi-remote area, 5 miles away from downtown San Ignacio. The best and most accurate way to reach our property is by catching a taxi in San Ignacio and asking the driver to take you to "Hanna Stables" or "Nabitunich." Please do not attempt to walk, as it is very long with few walking paths and involves unpaved roads. From Belize City, we are a 90-minute drive away. We can be reached either by Tropic Air flights (fly into the San Ignacio airport), public bus (about $20 USD per person for a 3 hour trip), or private taxi driver ($100 USD one-way for a 90 minute trip). Please let us know if you would like a private driver as we can reserve one for you.
