La Enramada Cabanas

Orange Walk Town, Orange Walk

Hotel Description
La Enramada Cabanas are situated in a quiet neighborhood off one of the main roads of town. Each stand-alone cement cabana has a TV, air-conditioning and a private, fully-tiled bathroom. One of the most unique features of this hotel is the adaptation of the typical style of beds used by the ancient Mayas. The mattress is placed on a permanent, solid, unshakable foundation, making for an extremely comfortable night's sleep. Outside, Mr. Crawford has recycled tires and made them into planters full of brightly-colored flowers. There are also fruit trees and other vegetation throughout the property. La Enramada is most famous for it?s Ceviche Bar and Restaurant located at the front of the property that is open daily for lunch and dinner. With a simple menu of shrimp ceviche, chips and drinks, locals and visitors alike are drawn to enjoy this favorite dish of Northern Belize.

History & Owners
The name ?La Enramada? captured Mr. Crawford on one of his trips abroad and he decided to use the name for his own hotel. He built the accommodation in the early 1990?s as a business for his family. Mr. Hilton Crawford, originally from Crooked Tree Village, Belize District, is a prime example of a person you can ?take out of the village but can?t take the village out of him?. Although he has lived outside of the village for over 30 years, he still has the spirit of a person who deeply cares about the community, respects people and especially youth. He has served in the police force, worked in the Belize Sugar Industry and is a builder. He is passionate about working with the youth of the community and is developing apprenticeship programs for troubled youth. He lives by his motto, ?Try to do your best all the time in whatever you do.?

Location & Directions
#5 Cristock Street, Orange Walk Town
Located on the west side of the main road through Orange Walk, it is easy to find if you stick to these directions. From the town center, travel south on the main road like you are exiting town. Pass Landy's & Sons and the new Santiago Castillo building. There is a bus stop on the right (west). Turn at this street and take the second right (north). La Enramada will be on the left side of the road.

If you don't follow these directions, people trying to find this location will wind through scenic streets and see all of the neighborhoods on this side of town before being able to find the cabanas. Everyone knows where the restaurant is but you can enjoy asking 4 or 5 people along various streets how to get there and they will give you thorough directions in Spanish and Creole with lots of arm gestures.
