How to get to San Ignacio, Belize.
There are many reviews about San Ignacio that you can read from many people that have been here before you or maybe even moved down here. It’s a nice town and while they are many other ways to travel to this part of Belize, I can sure you will find a shuttle ride to be the most comforting.

You here on this site, Stop think!! YES! SAN IGNACIO is the Place to explore inland Belize and we can take you THERE.
For William this town has become the destination that he will always look forward to come back even after already being on the road for the whole day, could stay somewhere else for the night, but just can’t wait to make it back home and relax.
It’s just nicely located inside the Maya mountains about 400 feet above sea level in the Mopan Valleys all around the Macal and the Mopan rivers, lush green all year around and with people so friendly that you wonder what’s wrong back home at times. You’ll feel it when you’re here and you can tell me if I was wrong on the way back.
Visitors to Belize who are here to experience all the country has to offer usually stay in 2 or 3 destination such as: Placencia, Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, Hopkins and some remote location like up in the Maya Mountains for a more of the beaten path adventure. Many of time you travel in Belize will converge in San Ignacio town, where tour like: Tikal, The ATM Cave, Iguana Hatchery and many more can be enjoy.
Some of the pics attached to give you a slight impression of the area…..it’s like West Virginia with plam trees.

A little about in food in San Ignacio
This quaint little town is decorated with supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, bars and gift shops. The heart of San Ignacio has a positive local vibe, with a bustling market and steady flow of immigrants. Boasting some of the best and high rated restaurants, the diversity and style of cuisine in Cayo is enough to blow your mind.
Restaurants such as, “Pops Restaurant and “Ko’ox Han Nah”, have been an all-time favorite and most recommended restaurants in town.
Pops Restaurant opens at 6:30am to 3:00pm. Their breakfast menu, killer coffee and fresh orange juice have attracted both tourists and locals. The Menu is described as healthy and wholesome. It is a mixer of Belizean and American dishes, with great options for meat lovers and vegetarians.
A must stop for breakfast
Ask any tourist you know in San Ignacio, if they have truly been here, and ask where they recommend for breakfast, most of them will say Pop's. The food is great, nice diner atmosphere, and you can get from American, to English, to Belizeans breakfasts, at great prices, and very very delicious flavors. There is a reason he had to expand his place, his food is just that good.
Lunch and Dinner in town
Ko’ox Han Nah means “Let’s go eat” in Maya. Locally known as Hannah’s, this iconic establishment is the perfect place for lunch or dinner. The menu is short, with a mixer of Indian and Belizean cuisine. This quaint restaurant has attracted many tourists in search of Belizean food with popping flavors.
Out of this World!!!
Ko-Ox Han nah was mine and my husband’s favorite place to eat while visiting San Ignacio. We stayed there for 3 nights and went there at least 3 or 4 times. Their food is delicious, a variety of food options, always specials, and the drinks alone will have you coming back! All in all you cannot get a better quality or amount of food for your money! Also, the people who run the place are so friendly and helpful, especially when not knowing what to choose. Lastly, try the lamb curry, out of this world!
