The San Ignacio Resort Hotel is located in San Ignacio town, in the Cayo district of Belize, Central America. We are just five minutes walking distance from the center of town and up a steep hill that overlooks the beautiful San Ignacio landscape.
San Ignacio is a small town in Western Belize located on the banks of the Mopan and Macal Rivers. The town is located only 72 miles west of Belize City and the country’s major air hub, Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport which is about one and a half hour drive. The Airport operates daily flights to the US and other countries.
There are two official crossing points on the Mexico – Belize border. The more frequently used is at Santa Elena, 9 miles from Corozal Town in Belize and 7 miles from Chetumal in Mexico. The all-paved Northern Highway runs from the border to Belize City. The other crossing is at Blue Creek, 34 miles southwest of Orange Walk Town. The only land crossing between Belize and Guatemala is a mile west of the Belizean town of Benque Viejo del Carmen at the end of the all-paved Western Highway.
Entering Belize is a simple, straightforward process. You must present a passport that will be valid until you leave the country. It’s advisable to have at least six months of validity remaining. Officially, visitors are also required to be in possession of an onward or return ticket from Belize and funds worth BZ$120 a day for their stay in the country, but it’s rare for tourists to be required to show this. Tourists are generally given a 30-day stay which is extendable at a local Immigration Office.

RENTING A VEHICLE
Belize may be small, but it is spread out in a way that you will need a car to get around. There are Belize car rental agencies at the airport, as well as other locations throughout Belize. Your international or U. S. driver’s license will work in Belize, though you will have to purchase insurance, available at the Belize rental car agencies. In Belize, you will be driving on the right side of the road.
