Where the Interesting People Meet!!
Welcome to our Humble Abode…
This is just to get you a little acquainted with us before you arrive…
Hotel Mopan was founded in 1973 by Jean U. Shaw, J.P., M.B.E.. She was a pioneer in the Tourism Industry. In fact, she was the founding President of the Belize Tourism Industry Association.
She is well-recognized for all her time, effort and work for the country of Belize and in early 2000, my brother and I accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Belize Tourism Board on her behalf.
Her efforts were also honored by her being the recipient of the title of M.B.E. (Member of the British Empire) from the Queen of England. A title she was very proud of. My mom had two kids… a boy and a girl… Tomy and Jeannie. I am Jeannie. My mom went on to greener pastures when she passed away December 6th, 1999 and left us the biggest job of having to fill her shoes – not to mention learning how to live without her.
Facilities & Services:
We offer 2 in house Internet Stations to connect you to your family, friends and business associates.
We have been in operation since 1973 and have 30 years combined experience and we have EARNED a great reputation with many people who have graced our humble abode.
The metaphoric foundation of our establishment has been set by a trail blazing Belizean woman who has not only done a lot for Tourism in Belize but for Tourism in our Hotel. We have learned from the very best in the business.
We’re just a stone throw away from historical landmarks such as St. John’s Cathedral, House of Culture, Swing Bridge and the Market.
We are directly across the street from the local Continental Office for those of you who fly Continental. This allows you to check in early and head up to the airport closer to the time of the flight.
Most importantly, we want you to stay with us!

Of Special Note:
We like to think of Hotel Mopan as a home away from home for our guests. Actually, some guests get so comfortable, they can sometimes be seen BEHIND the bar instead of around it! 🙂
My brother and I are the main streamline to the Hotel now and with the help of a great staff, we have been able to create our own return guests. The most rewarding part is that we both get the opportunity to work hard in keeping our mom’s legacy alive.
How to find us.
We are centrally located in Belize City which gives you access to great restaurants, bus terminals, boat terminals, diving companies, tour operators, Tourism Village, car rentals, souvenir shops and much more.
