    San Ignacio Favorites

    San Ignacio is across the Macal River from their sister city of Santa Elena. To get from one side of the river to the other you must cross the one-lane Hawksworth Bridge - Belize's only suspension bridge which was built in 1949.

  • Cool your feet in Rio on Pools!

    After our 3-hr trip to Caracol, lots of walking up stairs and hiking around the Mayan city at Caracol, then another hour and a half drive back up the bumpy road, we stopped for a refreshing cool-down at Rio-on-Pools. There was a short walk from the main road to the pools... and then you see the pools and it is wonderful!! Sit and take your shoes...

See my travelogue for pictures!

  • Take Snacks to Caracol!!

    Make sure to take some snacks and lots of water with you before you head out on your 3-hr drive to Caracol. There was one place we found along the way to get soft drinks, but they didn't have water. Plus, there is a nice little covered picnic area at the entrance to Caracol where you can have a snack before or after you explore. The picnic area...
