Cosmos Camping & Cabanas

San Ignacio Town, Cayo

Hotel Description
Cosmos Camping is situated on 30 acres of land bordering the Macal River. It boasts an orange orchard along with some forested areas and several notably tall trees. The compound of the property has vast areas of green grass, royal and travelers palm trees and areas of cascading bougainvillea vines that burst into color. Four units have recently been constructed making the property more of a hotel than a campground. Guests can feel safe with a night-watchmen and resident caretaker. The owners are known for their fresh-squeezed orange juice and their friendliness. If you have time for us, we have time for you.

History & Owners
Mr. Galvez, the owner, says that he fell into the hotel business by accident. His neighbors, a Turkish & Finnish couple, ran a campground and when they left the country Mr. Galvez continued to run the business. The name "Cosmos", meaning "universe," seemed to appropriately describe the area in all of its vast beauty. Mr. Galvez has been involved in numerous endeavors throughout his life teaching, starting the lotto and bringing Western Union are just a few of his accomplishments. He recently co-authored "The Father of the Nation", the biography of the Right Honorable George Price (the Prime Minister who led Belize to Independence in 1981). After a brief hiatus when Mr. Galvez was working on some of these other projects, he has put new energy into the property and is looking forward to hosting guests from around the world. He is also a District Tourism Officer for the Belize Tourism Board. His brother, Selvin "Bing" Tzib, runs a tailor shop making customized clothing. So, if you want a "Belize outfit" you have found the right place. He also happens to be a great cook!

Location & Directions
#15 Branch Mouth Road, San Ignacio Town
Cosmos Camping is within the town limits but it's like being out of town. From the Hawkesworth Bridge, travel down Burns Avenue (which is one-way) to the 5-point intersection, veer right onto Hudson Street. Pass by the taxi area, the bus area and market. Follow the road approximately quarter mile. Midway, the road becomes gravel and is named the "Branch Mouth Road". You will see the sign for Cosmos not far down on the left. The actual property is a bit further down the road, but stop and check-in at the tailor shop.
