San Ignacio
San Ignacio is the base for all of our inland trips. The town sits on the banks of the Macal river and started as a logging camp. Today, San Ignacio is a unique blend of America old west and tropical backwater with frontier-like wooden shops on narrow streets.

The San Ignacio bus station. From here, the buses go west to the Guatemalan border and east to Belize City.
This is the Hi-Et hotel (no, not Hyatt). The brightly painted wooden structure stands near the centre of the town.
Tropicool Hotel was where we stayed. Wally keeps it very clean and tidy, probably the best value in town.
A view down Burns Ave in the morning, the main street in San Ignacio.
Two things you'll see at every dinner in Belize -- Belikin beer and Marie Sharp's pepper sauce.
This is the Hammock Bridge at Branch Mouth, a 30 min walk from San Ignacio. Not much to see here, but it was a nice walk for a lazy afternoon.
Our last day at San Ignacio, we're all packed up and ready to go.
