San Ignacio

San Ignacio, often referred to as Cayo, is a quiet town on the western slopes of the Mayan Mountains. Located along the Western Highway, San Ignacio is very popular among travelers, as it offers all the tourist comforts, while maintaining its authenticity. The town is near the Macal River and is surrounded by green hills, where adventure awaits.



Considered as the adventure capital in Belize, there is no shortage of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether it's boating along the Macal River, tubing through the dark and deep caves, zip lines through the jungle or exploring the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve in search of birds. It is very easy to book a tour by visiting one of the tour operators on Burns Avenue, a pedestrian street that runs through the town center.



San Ignacio is also an excellent option for those looking to learn about the history of Mayan culture. A few minutes from the city is Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, two impressive Mayan ruins dating back to 1200 BC. For those willing to venture beyond, San Ignacio is the starting point for full-day excursions to the Caracol Archaeological Reserve that is located by a ballast road in the jungle. This is one of the largest Mayan sites in the country and is home to the tallest pyramid in Belize of 136 feet (41 m).

There is a wide variety of accommodation in and around San Ignacio that range from cheap hostels to luxury eco-friendly accommodations. Restaurants serving local and international food are plentiful while the main streets of the city are full of fruit vendors and street food.
