Lovely scenery in mountain pine ridge – san ignacio belize
If at all possible, anyone and everyone that comes to San Ignacio Belize should try to get to Mountain Pine Ridge. It’s an amazing place filled with pine trees for one, but also amazing views, caves, pools and rocks you can jump off.
Getting there isn’t that much of a problem. If you have a 4WD car, or you want to rent one it works out pretty well. In fact it works out better that taking a tour. Tours run around 140bz – 160bz per person; a rental car will run 90bz – 135bz for as many as you can fit in the car. To drive there you head to Santa Elena and just before the DMV there is a road going up hill that is paved.The road winding through mountain pine ridge – san ignacio belize The DMV is a complex on the right (if heading out of town) with a big chain-link fence around it. That’s the road you want. Just stay on that one and you will get to a sign where you can take a right to head into Mountain Pine Ridge, or a left to get to Esperanza and the highway. The only thing you need to know is that there is a motorcade that goes in in the morning around 8:30 or 9:00. Before that the park isn’t open. When you get in, there is something of a ranger station on the right and they should have maps for you of the area. And if all this is too much talk to any tour company and they can take you.
