Yellow Belly Backpackers was created by backpackers for backpackers and we pride ourselves on being a social, friendly, and comfortable place to stay. Located only minutes from downtown, overlooking the rolling hills of San Ignacio, we welcome you to grab a drink and settle in. Our friendly staff is here to answer your questions, help you book tours, and guide you during your stay.

Whether you want to share a Belikin beer (or three) with new friends, simply relax after a long day of adventures, or cooking a meal, you can do it in comfort. We invite your to fill your water bottle (for free!) and get your morning started with complimentary coffee and tea.
