After sleeping for about 11 hours on the world’s most comfortable mattress…
and then eating a seriously hearty breakfast at my hotel, Mahongany Hall in Bullet Tree Fall, I set out for Saturday market day in San Ignacio.
For those of you new to Belize, San Ignacio is the biggest town in the Cayo District…the largest and after the beaches, the most visited. It is the gateway to Guatemala and the beautiful ruins at Tikal but you are crazy if you skip over Cayo…CRAZY. Jungles, caves (the ATM CAVE!), gorgeous rivers, birds, animals, impressive Mayan ruins…
Here’s a map.
These chickens wanted nothing to do with me. But I so love a baby chick.
But not enough to buy one for 50 cents in town later in the morning.
I passed a very pretty drug & alcohol drug rehabilitation center. I’ll need to know more about this place but when I visited the office no one was around. Beautifully maintained and called Remar.
A few signs that advertised organic plants and farming…
To the main junction in the village. A good spot to wait for the $2 dollar taxi.
The new park.
Sorrel! I’ve been wondering what this flavor comes from. Sorrel juice is served in lots of restaurants here and you’ve all heard of the holiday drink, Belikin Stout.
I stopped for a piece of pie at Hannah’s.
