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. Vacations in San Ignacio rarely end here, with such good connections to the rivers, jungles, and hills of the region. But the upbeat vibe that attracts international visitors, but doesn't exist solely for them, tends to have travelers staying longer than they planned. The local restaurants, good quality accommodations, and local spirit all combine to create a pleasant and interesting riverside town. Make your Belize itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
