EXPLORE NEW EXPERIENCE

Maya Fish Cooking Experience

Immerse yourself in culture at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. In this Maya Cooking Experience, you will learn how to prepare a succulent fish cuisine, in the same manner, the ancient Maya cooked fish thousands of years ago. The fish is cooked on a fire heart and is marinated with local and organic Belizean spices. The cooking session takes place in a newly renovated Maya house, built next to a preserved ‘Chultun’ ( a natural refrigerator used by the ancient Maya to preserve food and meats for days), and can be eaten under the Maya House or at the on-site Running W Restaurant. Explore this new on-site experience.

This is a wonderful place to stay if you are headed to Western Belize. It is convenient to ATM, & Tikal if you chose to visit them. The staff is attentive and very professional. I can't say enough positive comments about it. It pays to arrange for their shuttle to pick you up from the airport.
