Travel Blogs from San Ignacio
It seems a shame to move away from the much needed cooling ocean breeze when this is such a hot climate but there are things to see in the jungle. So we hopped on a water taxi back to Belize City where we picked up a cheap local bus to San Ignacio on the Guatemalan border. That will give you an indication of the size of Belize. 3 hours on a bus (that stops everywhere) and you've gone from the coast in the East to the border in the West. Buses in Belize ...

Diane went into a classroom and the teacher was really excited to show her an activity that she had taught her, so she stayed to watch the class do the activity.
