San Ignacio is very rural and Cayo district, while lovely in its natural beauty is still developing financially. Travel to the Cayo is a bit of an adventure; but one that is very doable and recommended. The primary draws would be the nature (caving, hikes, animals) and the Mayan Ruins. But for my family, Casa del Caballo Blanco was a reason to make the drive in itself. Find it at casacaballoblanco.com. The place is situated on a hill just above San Ignacio with a view of the rainforest and lights of the city below. 6 intimate cabanas are charmingly located and well appointed. The decoration is local and tasteful. The staff is very accommodating. If you choose to eat at the B&B you are served meals that are reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. They have a rehabilitation center for birds that is unique to the country.
