Tour Companies of San Ignacio Belize
In Some ways, towns that get tourists are a lot alike in the sense that you get a whole industry that builds up around these people that come to see the place. San Ignacio Belize is no different. From the second you get off the bus to the time when you leave, people will be trying to get money out of you. The trick is that it is all done in a nice way so you don't really notice. The point to all this is this, if someone walks up to you, follows you, or says anything bad about another business or company - walk away quickly you don't want to deal with those people. While most places in town are legit there are a few that should be closed, but they pay off the right people. So if you are going to book a tour, use the list here or do some research. If you go for Trip Advisor, read the companies 5 worst reviews and that should give you a pretty good idea of the quality of the company, and if you hear something good about a guide you should know that all the companies use the same guides, so don't book with someone just because you heard they had a good guide. Now with that out of the way here are some of the better places to book in town
Destiny Tours is a great company that has been operating for about a year. But the lead tour guide Sergio has been doing his thing for 20 years. They operate out of Flayva's Restaurant, which is on the corner of Burns Ave and Bullet Tree Rd. (the big intersection). Ask anyone working about trips, the whole staff is very knowledgeable.
