Get to know San Ignacio (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in San Ignacio.

Situated in western Belize on the banks of the Macal River and close to the Guatemalan border, San Ignacio, Belize, is a popular destination for tourists. The town offers a range of accommodation styles from budget San Ignacio, Belize hostels and hotels, up to mid-range guesthouses, and fancy resorts.

The city itself is a melting pot of multiculturalism, with San Ignacio’s population consisting of Mestizo, Creole, Lebanese, Spanish, and Chinese immigrants. English is recognised as the official language in Belize, however, most residents in this area speak Spanish as their first language, so knowing some basic words will help you on your travels through the area.

Finding a San Ignacio, Belize hostel with air conditioning will make your stay more comfortable, as the temperature is almost always hot and humid. The rainy season is between May and January and it might be worth avoiding if you don’t like wet weather.

In terms of tourist activities, visitors can explore nearby Mayan ruins, such as those of Caracol, an important political centre covering an area of two hundred square kilometres; El Pilar, the largest site in the area with hundreds of significant buildings and plazas; or Cahal Pech, an ancient palace and home to the Mayan elite. If caves and crystal maidens have your attention then a tour to the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave is a must. The experience will take you hiking through muddy paths, through rivers, and into the mouth of a cave and along another river that was once used for ancient rituals and is now the resting place for the remains of a skeleton that has crystallized over time. It is truly worth the visit to San Ignacio alone.

There are also a number of lesser-known caves and areas such as waterfalls to visit, with which your San Ignacio, Belize hostel can assist or offer guidance. Many also operate private tours for your convenience. Be sure to shop for the best prices.
