    Sunset Karaoke Bar Near Low Bridge in San Ignacio.

    by RichardP39 Written Jun 5, 2012

    Favorite thing: My favorite place to have a beer in the evening and sing or just listen how others do it.
    You can meet there many interesting people.

    Fondest memory: I fell in love with that little town on my first visit, and decided to make it my Future Home.
    Now it will be my 9th visit and I own my little hideout.

    A small city in the western hill country of Belize

    by Bonnieclyde Written Jul 18, 2007

    Favorite thing: San Ignacio is a small town in the western hill country of Belize, near the border of Guatemala. The town is clean, friendly & kind of 'quaint'. You can go hiking in the hills, caving in a number of fabulous cave systems complete with underground rivers & ancient Mayan artifacts & remains of human sacrifices, and there is also a small but impressive Mayan Temple complex nearby.
    An added benefit of travelling in Belize, is that it is predominantly an English speaking country.

    Fondest memory: My favorite memory of San Ignacio, is hiking through the hills & meeting up with an elderly farmer & his grandson, with whom I shared visions of life in our respective countries.

    Map of our San Ignacio Area Adventures

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This map shows Crooked Tree, the inland island birdwatching sanctuary, in the top right corner. It was from there that we arrived in San Ignacio, on the Guatemala border on our 12th day in Belize. San Ignacio was very conveniently located to allow us to do further trips in any direction, with our first two adventures being located right on the doorstep of our accommodations at the Trek Stop. The Mayan ruins of Xunantunich followed by a 2.5 hour jungle tubing trip down the Mopan River was a great way to get started. We immediately followed this with a full-day trip back toward Belmopan as we explored the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) sacrificial cave, with skeletons still remaining from 1100 years ago. We finished off with a two-day excursion into Guatemala to see the most famous Mayan site of them all, at Tikal National Park. Mixed on both sides of our Tikal trip were a couple of day trips into San Ignacio itselt to see what it had to offer. One week after we arrived, we were back on the road, headed for Belize City on the Caribbean coast for a final night before we flew out!

    Take your own Breakfast!

    by saraheg77 Written Jun 7, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: My two friends and I knew that our little cabin didn't come with breakfast, so we decided to take our own. We took breakfast bars to eat for breakfast before we left for our adventures in the morning. We also took crackers for lunch, in case we didn't find somewhere to eat wherever we might be adventuring out in the wilderness :) This proved to be very helpful several days when we weren't close to much civilization during lunch time. We also bought a coke and/or bottle of water each morning at a gas station in San Ignacio because we didn't know how accessible it would be later.

    Fondest memory: Our nice little pantry saved us several times! And it was a lot cheaper than buying breakfast and even lunch sometimes!

    Well stocked!

    Favorite thing: We were iffy about swimming in the river as all those drains/sewers lead down to the water. We waded some, up river from the new Bridge. Wasn't too bad.

    Then we found the Swimming Pool at the San Ignacio Hotel. $3 bucks for adults, $2 for kids. Swim all day! Great find!
