    • Anywhere to buy ocean/pool floaty toys?

      Belize Nov 7, 2015 at 2:48 PM

      Sailing for a few days out of Placencia with some friends - we were hoping to get our hands on some relaxing floaty toys to lounge around in during the trip. They're too big and heavy to fly with - anyone know of a place somewhere between Belize City and Placencia that we can buy these (sports store, ocean or boating supply, toy store, large supermarket, etc)? And maybe a decent hammock?

      Travel ideas with a 1 year old

      Belize Nov 11, 2015 at 3:23 PM

      My wife and I are 30 and 28 and have had our fair share of travels. We have explored Central America, Fiji, the Caribbean and Hawaii. We love to do anything outdoors and are divers. Our all time favorite trip was that of Belize, great culture, nice waters, amazing hikes, and great food. We tend to do Hawaii once or twice and year and love it there. In fact we love it so much that our son has a Hawaiian middle name and he has already been there at the age of 4 months. As much as we love Hawaii, I would like to experience another "outside the box" trip before we have our next one. We will most likely be traveling sometime between next May and next August. I just need help coming up with ideas. I'm looking for a place that will entertain my wife and I but is still easy to take my son there. Obviously someplace safe, as I've already had to experience hospitals in other countries and I'd prefer my son not but at least know if we had to then it would be ok! Any help would be awesome, and feel free to ask questions. Thanks!

    • What would be the best city to stay in Belize?

      by TwosCompany Online Now May 20, 2015 at 7:30 AM

      My friend and i are planning to travel to Belize. We are in our early 30's. We definitely want to hike, go to jungles and also towards the end of our trip we want to relax at the beach. We do not want to do an all inclusive package because we want to venture out into town and check out their food, entertainment/nightlife, cafes and bars. So we would like to get our insight on which town is best to stay in considering what i mentioned.

      Also, we were contemplating on staying in Ka'ana Resort, a resort a 10 min drive from San Ignacio BUT there arent any beaches by there and we would have to take a short plane ride or drive two hours.

      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
