    • Touring Belize

      Belize Mar 31, 2014 at 7:05 AM

      Wife and I will be in Belize 2nd week in August. Not really vacation, rather looking for potential sites to have a 2nd home. Interested in Caye Caulker, Palencia area, Stann Creek, possibly Ambergris Caye. Plan on ocean and reef access, view and will have a boat. What is the best way to travel (renting a car, plane/taxi) and in those areas what are good places to stay (comfortable, safe with A/C)? Not looking to rough it, but don't need San Francisco prices either.

      My Husband and I are staying at the Trek Stop for 2 nights in mid April. Does anyone know what the timing of buses is for getting to Placentia? Wondering if there will be time for us to walk to Xunatech (sp) in the morning and grab a noon bus to get to Placentia at a decent time? First trip of this kind for us, appreciate any input! Thanks!

    • How long will it take to drive from San Ignacio to BZE airport?

      by cinemanix Online Now Sep 29, 2010 at 11:19 AM

      We have an 11:45am departure out of BZE, in late October. Will the roads be slow, due to end of rainy season?
      How much time should we allow to drive from San Ignacio to BZE?
      Do we need to check in a full 2-3 hours before our flight departure?
      We will be returning our rental car to Crystal Rental you think that will be a slow process?
      I am worried about making the flight obviously.
      Thanks for your thoughts!

    • Hodies and security

      by wcfeader Online Now Aug 26, 2009 at 1:56 PM

      I'm wondering about the thumbs up for Hodies, especially for dinner when it is likely that patrons will be coming home in the dark. The restaurant is located up near the soccer field and I understand that there was an attempted robbery there.

      So, if there are other places for me to eat in San Ignacio, I don't think I'm going to take the chance.

    • Pine Mountain Ridge

      by WNCtravelbug Online Now Jun 22, 2008 at 12:38 PM

      So you travelled through the mountains looks like..? We will be in Belize in Aug. and are going to the Cayo region after spending a few days in Caye Caulker. Have been looking at several lodges, in particular Pine Mountain Lodge I think is the name. I guess there are many - do you suggest going from place to place? Did you base out of one location or keep moving with Eva's?

      Dam progress

      by Earthtourist Online Now Feb 5, 2006 at 9:16 AM

      I've been reading about the dam that was proposed for the Macal River upstream of San Ignacio. I've canoed that river up and down and am horrified that they are going to flood that incredibly lovely area. I wonder how much construction has gone on so far and for how long canoing the river will be possible. I'm trying to get back to there as soon as I can.

    • Want to Visit San Ignacio

      by SSSony12 Online Now Jan 10, 2006 at 9:51 AM


      We are considering a trip to San Ignacio this year, end of March beginning of April. What is the weather like this time of year? From what I have been reading on this site, it seems that San Ignacio is pretty centralized for caving, Mayan Ruins, etc. Is San Ignacio near the beach or inland? How far from the Airport and what is the best transportation and place to stay?

      Thank you for any and/or all your help.

    • Eating in San Ignacio

      by wadia2004 Online Now Nov 23, 2004 at 6:29 AM

      I'm traveling to San Ignacio in Dec. I'm very concern with getting good food at an affordable price. I really don't want to be sick over Xmas. A friend of mine was in Belize last Xmas and ate at a place called Nefry's he said it's new but it's the best. He also told me to keep away from Eva's. Does anyone know about either of these places? I really would appriciate your help since I'm travelling for the first tim and alone. Thanks you all. Wadia

      Has anyone been cave tubing in the San Ignacio area? I will be there in Dec. I have seen that Cave's Branch offers it, but it seems a bit far from San Ignacio. Any suggestions?
