Because we are based San Ignacio, we talked more about what to do inland. Apart from that, Belize has plenty of tours and activities along the coast and on the Islands. Go Scuba Diving, Fishing, Snorkeling or Whale diving and Snorkeling with Turtles. A more relaxing thing to do in the country is to simply do nothing. Yes! You heard right, just sit on the beach or at a local beach bar and enjoy the Belizean people, hospitality, food and drinks; while kids play and have fun on miles of beach.
Belize was cited as one of the top countries to visit in 2021 by lonely planet and many other travel organizations. They all talked about the amazing places to see and exciting things to do. San Ignacio Town is where you can find the majority of the things to do in the Jungle. Go Hiking, Birding, Canoeing, Spelunking, Rappelling, Swimming and so much more.

Looking for something you can do on your own? Here is our recommendation. You can take a taxi or even walk to these places, buy a ticket in some cases and wonder about, a tour guide may be optional.
Cahal Pech – This small set of Mayan ruins is San Ignacio’s most visited tourist attraction. The site contains a visitors’ center and restored plazas and temples. The climb up the hill to Cahal Pech is strenuous but rewarding, and the ruins’ site and the view of San Ignacio Town from such elevation are spectacular.
Farmers Market – If your stay includes a Saturday morning, head to the town’s open-air market. Farmers from all over the Cayo District arrive to offer fresh fruit, vegetables, jams, and dairy products. This is a great place to stock up on inexpensive snacks for your outings and taste some local food for breakfast.
Green Iguana Exhibit – The San Ignacio Resort Hotel runs a conservation program for the Green Iguana with the aim of creating awareness and educating visitors and locals about these colorful creatures.
Xunantunich – Otherwise known as the “the Maiden of the Rock,” Xunantunich is a must-see Mayan ruin site. Climb the El Castillo pyramid ruin for a fantastic view of the entire site and the Mopan and Macal rivers.
Our shuttle connects you to a destination at any given time, the one you’re leaving and the one to where you’re headed. For instance, if you’re going to Placencia from Belize City, you can easily visit the Belize Zoo, Inland Blue Hole, or some other tours your driver may recommend. Points of interest can also turn out to be things you can do throughout the country. As a matter of fact, did you know that there’s a place on the Hummingbird Highway where Gravity is the reverse? Instead of going downhill, you go up.
