BELIZE A Jaunt from San Ignacio to the El Pilar Archaeological Site
It’s not a major or well-excavated site but it sure is a fun ride to get there
Dist: 16 km; Date Mar 2010
Leave the tourist-drawing town of San Ignacio going northwest on Bullet Tree Rd – Belize has some great names for things. In the town of Bullet Tree Falls cross the Mopan River and veer right off Main Rd onto Santa Familia Rd. Take the second left, which appears nameless on Google Maps. From here on it’s 11 km of off-tarmac fun through the sparsely-settled forest until you reach the ruins.
