Belize's biggest urban center, Belize City is a culturally diverse seaside destination.

The cultural hub of the district, San Ignacio neatly blends tourism and tradition, expats and indigenous peoples into a convincingly authentic, but modern and welcoming inland town.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sun): steep yourself in history at Xunantunich Mayan Ruins, then admire the masterpieces at Tanah Mayan Art Museum, and then look for gifts at Kaj Expressions. On the 30th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: stroll through Green Iguana Conservation Project, then take in the exciting artwork at Cappello's Art Gallery, then learn more about the world around you at Chaa Creek Natural History Museum, and finally explore the galleries of Sak Tunich Art Gallery.

Plan my San Ignacio trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Belize City to San Ignacio by combination of flight and bus takes about 2 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel to San Pedro.

San Pedro, Ambergris Caye

San Pedro evolved from small fishing village and now represents one of the most visited locations in Belize.
Visiting Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. Let the collections at The Gallery of San Pedro and Belizean Arts capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: cast your line with a fishing tour, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and look for gifts at Belizean Breezes Soap Co. and More.

You can do a combination of bus and flight from San Ignacio to San Pedro in 3.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of bus and ferry.
