I'll travelling to San Ignacio in November and can use some timing advice.
I'm staying 2 days in Tikal (a lodge inside the park) and plan to travel from Tikal to San Ignacio and stay two nights and then travel on. So the itinerary is something like this:
Day 1: Travel from Tikal to San Ignacio in morning. Day & Night in San Ignacio
Day 2: full day and night in San Ignacio
Day 3: Travel from San Ignacio to Belize to catch 2:30pm flight.
I had hoped to do two things in San Ignacio - ATM and Caracol. However, from all the tour company sites i've looked at, it sounds like both a full day trips that start very early in the morning, so since i'm travelling in from Tikal on my first day, I probably wouldn't be able to do one of them. Does that sound about right?
1. Are there any other good tours from San Ignacio that can be done in half a day (specifically starting later in the day, not in the morning)?
2. Any opinions on picking between ATM and Caracol? I know it probably comes down to personal preference, but I'd love to hear opinions.
3. For traveling from San Ignacio to the airport on the last day, for a 2:30pm flight do I need any kind of super early transfer or is there plenty of time? (Alternatively, if there is time, should i bother trying to see Belize City before heading to airport?)
