San Ignacio Town

Originally the town was established as a hub for mahogany cutters in the interior. Now it is the administrative center of the Cayo District. Many of the major Hotels, such as the San Ignacio Hotel, are to be found here.

San Ignacio can’t be mentioned without it’s twin town, Santa Elena. Together they have a population of about 18.000 inhabitants. While Santa Elena is still mostly residential, in downtown San Ignacio you’ll find the “Central Zone”.
