|A typical Belizian road!|
San Ignacio and Santo Elena the twin cities is the second largest 'metropolitan' area in Belize. It is accurately described as an 'olde west' sort of town with paved streets and a casino. Some of the streets aren't paved, but the main roads are very passible. Drive a few hundred yards out of town though and the dirt/rock/mud roads appear again. In fact, going to the city's main attraction (other than the Royal Palms Casino,) Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins, is a journey only 4 wheel drive or a Belizian guide would attempt--and it is really in the town itself!!
