San Ignacio

Cayo Town

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.
Popular historic sites such as Xunantunich Mayan Ruins and Cahal Pech are in your itinerary. Visiting ATM Cave Belize- Actun Tunichil Muknal and Blue Hole National Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to The Belize Zoo in La Democracia (about 1h 15 min away). It doesn't end there: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers and take in the exciting artwork at Cappello's Art Gallery.

For traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the San Ignacio online vacation planner.

Durham, USA to San Ignacio is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Durham to San Ignacio. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) so you can travel to Caye Caulker.
