"A small city in the western hill country of Belize" San Ignacio Favorite Tip by Bonnieclyde

San Ignacio General: 8 reviews and 13 photos

Favorite thing: San Ignacio is a small town in the western hill country of Belize, near the border of Guatemala. The town is clean, friendly & kind of 'quaint'. You can go hiking in the hills, caving in a number of fabulous cave systems complete with underground rivers & ancient Mayan artifacts & remains of human sacrifices, and there is also a small but impressive Mayan Temple complex nearby.
An added benefit of travelling in Belize, is that it is predominantly an English speaking country.

Fondest memory: My favorite memory of San Ignacio, is hiking through the hills & meeting up with an elderly farmer & his grandson, with whom I shared visions of life in our respective countries.
