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

      San Ignacio 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.

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

      San Ignacio 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!

      San Ignacio 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.

      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

      San Ignacio 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.

      San Ignacio 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.
