I have just returned from Belize tour. It was a wonderful trip. We have visited many places including San Ignacio and Ambergris Caye. San Ignacio city is the main town in the Cayo District of western Belize and is a perfect base to explore ancient Maya centers like Caracol and Xunantunich, ceremonial caves like Barton Creek and Actun Tunichil Muknal, and beautiful waterfalls like Rio on Pools and Big Rock waterfalls in the Mountain Pine Ridge Nature Reserve.
We have enjoyed hiking, kayaking, bird watching, and horseback in the area.
San Ignacio is also an outstanding en route to and from Guatemala since it is one of the last cities in Belize before entering Guatemala where many tourists go to visit Tikal - one of the biggest archaeological site in the nation.
Ambergris Caye is the biggest and most famous island in the northern waters of Belize and measures 25 miles long and 5 miles across. It is settled just 35 miles northeast of Belize City and can be communicated on a 10-minute plane ride or an hour and a half boat ride.
The great Belize Barrier Reef rests on the east side of Ambergris Caye and it is the island's greatest tourist attraction since it is only a quarter mile from the beach.
We have enjoyed scuba diving, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, and sail boating to the neighbor islands. We enjoyed all these with this travel company.
