We are diving for 4 days, staying over at Hopkins Inn. Then we want to move inland for a few days, seeing Cockscomb, maybe Pine Ridge, and a couple of Mayan ruins. I have been reading many messages and replies about places in the Cayo district, and am wondering about where to spend a few nights to hit all of those things. We will leave Dangriga and hike Cockscomb for a day, and then need lodging for a few nights.
I am trying to avoid staying in Belize City before getting on an outgoing plane, and hoping that a drive from the San Ignacio area is not going to take more than a couple of hours. We have a 12:30 midday flight, leaving from the Belize City airport. Am I OK in getting a place in the Cayo district around San Ignacio, or should I go with Belmopan or somewhere more easterly to get to airport in a timely fashion?
Anyone familiar with the driving times from these locations?
