San Ignacio, Belize: Jungle Town with Ecotourism Draws
High-rise resorts and chain stores are noticeably absent in San Ignacio. This small town along the banks of the Macal River has a decidedly local vibe; its main drag is lined with colorful shops, restaurants, and street vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables from open-air stalls. Ecotourism is one of San Ignacio's main draws, thanks to its setting amid the jungles of western Belize. Here visitors can swim at Big Rock Falls, kayak or canoe along the Macal and Mopan Rivers, and tour ancient Mayan ruins at Xunantunich and Cahal Pech. To learn more about local flora and fauna, visit the Iguana Conservation Project—where you can pet threatened green iguanas—or the Masewal Forest Garden and Medicine Trail for a guided tour that explains the medicinal uses of local plants.
