SAN IGNACIO - NEIGHBORHOODS
San Ignacio Town is cradled in a beautiful valley just south of where the Mopan and Macal Rivers converge. Located within Cayo District, this town is conveniently close to many of Belize's most popular outdoor attractions, including the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Preserve, the Chaa Creek Nature Reserve, the Baron Creek Cave, as well as the Caracol, Xunantunich, and Cahal Pech ruins (only a 10-minute walk from the center of town). San Ignacio's proximity to all of these renowned Mayan sites as well the Tikal ruins in Guatemala (San Ignacio is 9 miles from the border) has made this bustling town a magnet for archaeologists and anthropologists. From this one central location, it is easy to enjoy a myriad of activities that include, but are not limited to, hiking, birding, caving, canoeing, horseback riding, zip line tours, and of course exploration of the nearby Mayan ruins.
