Pal's Guesthouse

If you're looking for a decent place to stay in Dangriga on a budget, Pal's Guesthouse is a good option.

The building itself isn't much to look at, just a two story cement cinderblock building.  When I first stayed there I checked in at night figuring that it was just another cheap guesthouse with a clean bed and running water, but the next morning I woke up to a fantastic view of the Caribbean.  Really great to sit out on the balcony as you slowly wake up to the sound of the lap of water on the short just a few dozen feet away from you.  Its a short walk from the main intersection of town so you can stock up on drinks from the store and most rooms are equipped with a minifridge.

The rates vary depending on the season and how willing the management is to haggle.  The first time I stayed there I got a single room for $20US or $40Belize, but on subsequent visit I've had to pay a little more.  All in all it beats the $150US or more that you'd be paying at the Pelican Resort on the otherside of town.

To get to Pal's Guesthouse from the bus station, head left out of the station and walk in the direction of the town center on the main thoroughfare.  After you walk over the first bridge take an immediate right and head toward the water and you'll find it.

About This Blog

This blog is dedicated to Belize and Central America from the Yucatan peninsula to the edge of the Mosquito Coast in Honduras. After spending a lot of time in Belize I've picked up on a lot of info that isn't in the guidebooks and this blog is my chance to record it.

After travelling extensively, I've come to realize that Belize really is a country like no other. Its a place with geographic diversity from the coral reefs to the Mayan mountains, and cultural diversity from the ancient mayans to the garifuna. All it takes is one ride along the bumpy dirt road on an old school bus in Belize to really appreciate the fact that you are in a place like no other.
