SAN IGNACIO, BELIZE

Belize for the adventurous

A travel guide to Belize’s green side

After some marvelous weeks on Belize Cayes, we decided it was time for us to continue our journey. Together with our newfound friend Zoe, an American expat whom we met on Tobacco Caye we were off to discover Belize’s western part. As soon as we hopped off the bus, we felt an entirely different vibe from the coastal area.

Jungle adventures

San Ignacio and it’s twin town Santa Elena form the heart of the “Cayo” district. It’s the first stop for many travelers coming from Guatemala. While there is a comfortable touristic infrastructure,  San Ignacio manages to maintain an authentic and vibrating charm. Contrary to the coastal part of Belize, Spanish is most widely spoken. San Ignacio is surrounded by lush vegetation, fast flowing rivers, Maya ruins, and caves. There are lots to do in this lively little town!
