When you don’t follow the crowds, discoveries are made
The coastal areas can be quite tempting but that’s not the only beauty you can find in Belize-- the tropical forests are as good as it can be these days! As much as we LOVE our gorgeous coastal destinations—we encourage you to skip those common places and try something new while travelling the warm and sunny Central America.
Heading to where everyone is, can be an easy way to plan a vacation but what about heading inland and ticking off numerous adventures off your bucket list? San Ignacio, Belize is packed with exhilarating journeys, history, calmness, warm atmosphere and moments beyond expectations. Here is why you should skip the usual places and book inland Belize!

It is the Perfect Place for Adventure Junkies!
This piece of paradise has an array of activities to offer-- forget diving! Imagine zip lining through tropical forests, enjoying unimaginable views. Or cave tubing through ancient caves where the Maya have more stories to tell than you can imagine.

San Ignacio, Belize Boasts Untouched Forests and Conservation Efforts!
The San Ignacio Resort Hotel is proud to be home to the Green Iguana Conservation Project. This self-sustained project houses the endangered Green Iguana specie to incubate, hatch, rear and release them. We also offer Medicinal Tours on-site which gives tips on how the Maya used local plants for medicinal purposes. Another interactive project that you can find around town is the Blue Morpho Butterfly Farm, an exhibit that showcases the life cycles of the “Belizean Blue” or take a stroll by the Belize Botanical Garden. Most of Belize’s lush tropical forests are untouched and protected which gives them extra charm.
It is Full of History!
