By BBN Staff: San Pedro, Belize is the number one tourist destination in all of Central America, according to Trip Advisor’s latest compilation of its top 10 list. But one of Belize’s other top tourism destinations, San Ignacio, also makes that top 10 list!
“San Pedro is ‘La Isla Bonita’ that Madonna made famous,” Trip Advisor says, adding that it’s a tourist mecca that boasts great beaches and plenty of dive shops where visitors can enjoy the sun, sand, and sea.
Trip Advisor also encourages tourists to plan a side trip to Caye Caulker while in Belize because although it is less developed and more laid back, it has its own splendid swimming areas.
San Ignacio ranks at seventh on the list of top 10 destinations in Central America. According to Trip Advisor, San Ignacio is the kind of town that appeals to the tourist truly looking for a getaway. “It’s true: parts of Belize are getting touristy. But San Ignacio remains rustic, making it a great base for budget-friendly tropical adventure travel,” Trip Advisor says.
The travel site encourages tourists to canoe on the Macal River, or walk to Mayan ruins at Cahal Pech.
Other destinations that make the top 10 list include: La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica; Santa Teresa, Costa Rica; Tamarindo, Costa Rica; Granada, Nicaragua; Panama City, Panama; West End, Honduras; Antigua, Guateala and Santa Cruz La Laguna, Guatemala.
