There are also shops locally where foodstuffs can be purchased to make your own meals in the Airstream kitchen. It has a propane stove and oven, a convection microwave, and a propane/electric refrigerator.
A local restaurant offers traditional fare at an amazing price and, if you're in the mood for something very special, Francis Ford Coppola's Blancaneaux Lodge is 20 minutes away. The NeighborhoodThe property is located in a close-knit, Mayan community who are very friendly. There is a restaurant, a hardware store, a bakery, a couple gas stations, a tortilleria, and more.
The next-door neighbors are lovely, and host weekly religious revivals that all are welcome to join in. It gets very lively sometimes!
There is also a mini mart two doors over where you can buy sodas, ice, snacks, frozen chicken, and even a smart card to add time to your local cell phone.
San Ignacio is about 30 minutes away and is a bustling town with lovely restaurants, nightclubs, shops, a fabulous fruit market, and more. Just ask Pauline, Guy or Lily about where to eat. Most stores close for lunch from 12:00pm to 1:00pm and nearly everything closes at 5:00 pm sharp. Except for the restaurants.
Twenty minutes away is the stunning Blancaneaux Lodge where you can dine in sublime luxury after a long day of crawling through the jungle. Getting AroundThere is a local bus that goes to San Ignacio bus depot. It stops right at the property. Also, you can call a taxi if necessary or catch a ride with a local.
San Ignacio has a car rental if you arrive by bus and decided you wanted a little more flexibility in getting around. You will definitely need a 4-wheel drive and high clearance. The roads can be rough. Other Things to NoteIf you are looking for a "quiet" vacation, this is not the place. It is on an unpaved route that connects several villages, and is a main route for the Belizean and British military training trucks on their way to the Pine Ridge reserve. In addition the wildlife make their presence known 24/7. Toucans, Kiskidees, Mourning Doves and dozens more birds fill the tree canopies and the morning with their various songs.
No cable. No TV. No Netflix streaming. But you aren't coming to this part of the world to watch TV anyway.
Though there is a DVD player in the Airstream.
Cell service is also very spotty.
