"But there is a different Belize that we set out to find: its lush interior, thick with rain forests, Mayan ruins, tiny villages, intense wildlife..." -Dwight Garner
San Ignacio is the epicenter of Western Belize and the largest town in the Cayo district, located on the banks of the Mopan and Macal Rivers is an easy transfer from Belize City. 67 miles of modern roadway and the only suspension bridge in the country leads to a magically lush jungle full of truly special wildlife, breathtaking waterfalls, rushing rivers and ancient culture. Generational hospitality and unique resorts make this a truly special part of a trip to Belize.
San Ignacio has become a cultural hub, combining the history of the surrounding local Maya ruins with modern cultural influences. This region has an authentic and contagious vibe, teeming with life and positivity. Residents are mestizos, Maya and Garifuna, as well as a bunch of free-spirited expats from Europe and North America. Most travelers come to San Ignacio as a base for the adventures of the jungle and rivers as well as the ancient history of the Maya.
"The Peninsula" an affectionate nod to Spanish Settlers, is a 16 mile strip of paradise, Belizean's own Key West in the Southern Stann Creek District.
Hippy settlers from Canada and Europe were the modern day commercialized humans to develop the village giving it a rich organic and natural serenity offering visitors a variety of experiences fulfilling the wish lists of all. The peninsula is bordered by mangrove-lined lagoons, making this truly a world class area for sport fishing, water-front residences, beautiful boats and yachts from all over the world, intimate resorts, and unique small business commercial endeavors. 16 miles of clear blue Western Caribbean Sea front with expansive views and direct ocean access to nearby Belize Barrier Reef is what draws sophisticated travelers here. Spectacular rainbows are commonplace along palm dotted white sands, while the village itself is famous for it's charm and walkability.
A full on destination experience in and of itself, Placencia's location enables day trips further afield easily and affordably like the Blue Hole, Mayan Kingdoms, Wild Jungle are all day-trippable.
