San Ignacio Belize – Small Town Fun

For the month of April we made the town of San Ignacio Belize our home. It is a small, dusty yet quaint town, across from another small town, Santa Elena. They are only minutes from the Guatemala border and about two hours from the ocean. [bctt tweet=”Small Town #Belize #travel #photography”] Visiting San Ignacio Belize San Ignacio has […]

Who Wants to Take a Dip In a Belize Swimming Hole?
