Map of our San Ignacio Area Adventures

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!
