Destination guide

San Ignacio: the end of the road

San Ignacio lies at almost the end of the road in Belize, before it continues into Guatemala. It hasn't just grown over the years to cater for intrepid travelers, it's long been the heart of Cayo District and the largest settlement in the west of the country. Its vibrancy perhaps comes from the mix of Maya, Garifuna and Mestizo locals, who make up the town's resident population. Annually, the town comes alive during the dry winter season, when travelers descend to stay in San Ignacio vacation rentals, explore the nearby Mayan sites and join a whole host of outdoor activities.

Things to do

Adventure like Indiana Jones in San Ignacio

Want to spend a day feeling like Indiana Jones? You can do just that when you visit the ancient Mayan temples near your San Ignacio vacation rental. Perhaps the most famous of the lot is Xunantunich, a ceremonial center where a 130-foot-high temple needs to be seen to be believed. If that hasn't filled your cultural boots, then take a visit to Cahal Pech, another Mayan city that was thought to have been settled more than 3,000 years ago. You can complete your archeological adventure by going underground, to the watery, stalactite-laden caves once used as a burial ground by the ancients.


Explorers' territory in San Ignacio

While the town's laidback charm is enough for anyone to make the effort to come and stay in a San Ignacio vacation rental, the real magic is the surrounding forest and rivers, which are a playground for outdoor activities. You'll feel like a bunch of explorers when you head off down the rainforest trails for a hike, or hop on kayaks to paddle downstream. Alternatively, you can saddle up to ride along the equestrian trails, or go mountain biking. If you're feeling adventurous, you might want to take the family out into the rainforest for a night under canvas and stars.


Winters are best in San Ignacio

Belize's weather is fairly consistent with 2 main seasons – dry and rainy. If you plan to explore the town and all its nearby trails and Mayan sites, your best bet is by nabbing a San Ignacio vacation rental between November and mid-April, when the skies are bright, the temperature lovely and warm and there is little to no rain. If you're an intrepid traveler, you could save a few bucks by visiting during rainy season, when you'll likely spot few other travelers. Just remember to bring an umbrella in case you get caught in one of Belize's famous tropical downpours.

Hear the call of the howler monkey in San Ignacio

Just because you're not near the coast doesn't mean there's any less wildlife to see. The rainforest-covered countryside around your San Ignacio vacation rental has got more critters than you could possibly imagine. Listen out for the sounds of howler monkeys, whose call can be heard more than 3 miles away. While you're searching for them in the treetops, you may spot the brightly-colored beak of a toucan, or catch a glimpse of a beautiful blue morpho butterfly sweeping past. It's also highly unlikely that you'll visit San Ignacio without spotting the odd iguana basking in the midday heat.
