Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

I loved my stay in San Antonio Rio Honda! This cabaña was exactly what I was looking for. It might not be for everyone, but glad it was for ME! It is truly overlooking a beautiful tranquil river. It was clean and comfortable. Carmen and Juan were absolutely wonderful hosts. Their children delightful. They would have done anything for me, honestly. I arranged this sort of last minute when another trip fell through with Rod, the only gringo in town. It is a small town, maybe 600 people, most of them kids. Farm workers, real country folks. This is truly in the middle of nowhere. No stores exept a few things on shelves in peoples homes, same with restaurants, there are a few homes that offer tacos and fried chicken and riceandbeans Carmen is a GREAT cook and for a very small amount of money you can have your meals with her family. I TOTALLY recommend this. I wish I had known this ahead of time, I brought a bunch of food from Orange Walk as I just didn´t know what would be available there. Next time, i will bring a few snacks and nothing else. I got to go on a canoe, I got to ride a bike, I got to walk up to the cenote. Next time I will take a tour to the Lamanai ruins. The Cabaña was simple, small and perfect for one of two people. Bed was comfy and sheets and towels clean. By Belizian family standards, a palace, leave your gringo standards at the door, right? One thing I didn´t know ahead is there are two rooms to rent in the cabaña, hope my coughing didn´t keep my neighbor up! I had a cold. But perfect for two couples as there are the two cabañas, just know that your neighbor will hear EVERYTHING! Getting there was cheap and reletively easy. Bus from Chetumal to Corozal to Orange Walk to San Antonio. Note, there are two San Antonios, and most people thought I was refering to the one in Southern Belize. To be clear, this one is San Antonio Rio Hondo, about 25 miles from Orange Walk. So, thanks to everyone for a perfect get away and relaxing vacation. I will be BACK!

About the neighbourhood
There are two rooms for rent but only one is listed. The cabana is next to and is owned by the Jones family. Jose is a night watchman so he built the cabana so he could make extra money to send his four kids to school. The village is small, 500 residents including children so it is easy to walk around and talk to the people, most of whom speak English. You will see tiny kids to turkeys in the streets and wake up to roosters calling. It is very safe here even after dark. There is the river where you can fish and canoe, cenota for swimming, back roads through cane fields, pastures, and jungle to ride bikes or walk, visit the Mennonites, birdwatching, etc. There are no bars or discos. It is ideal to come to relax, take it easy, get to know the people, photograph, paint, write, and catch up o...
