3D TOUR of Gardens



Make your stay in Belize something to write home about. Combining seclusion with luxury and convenience, Kumquat Cottage, a delightful artist-designed house, is nestled a hop, skip and a jump from the center of San Ignacio yet boasts the privacy and solitude of your own personal resort. Saunter from your own terraced tropical gardens to a range of fine restaurants within minutes. Take one of Cayo's many adventures or stay at home cooking, reading a book on the deck, or hanging out watching the birds and iguanas near the spring-fed creek.

Thinking of retiring to our snow-less paradise? Kumquat is the ideal spot to make our home base and experience the real Belize is comfort and style. Stay for a week or a month or a year (long term rates offered).
