San Ignacio Belize's Top Trips and Tours

Mountain Pine Ridge is something of the red headed step-child of San Ignacio. Belize is known for the ocean and Mayan stuff. Mountain Pine Ridge is neither. It's a naturally occurring pine forest in the middle of the jungle. It has great waterfalls, hiking, swimming and a couple of good places to jump off rocks. So if you want a little change from the regular, head out to Mountain Pine Ridge. To the page

Tikal is, as you are probably aware, not in San Ignacio or even Belize for that matter. It's in Guatemala. However it's only a matter of hours from San Ignacio to Tikal, meaning, if you want, day trips can be made. Tikal is the largest set of Maya Ruins in the area and it's stunning. If you are going to see any of the ruins around this part of Central America, these should be them. To the page

Actun Tunichil Muknal is the biggest attraction around the San Ignacio, Belize area and with good reason. This trip takes you on a tour of Xibalba - The Mayan Underworld. You starting by hiking back into the jungle just out side San Ignacio and to the mouth of the cave. From there you swim/wade your way to an ancient Maya holy place. All sorts of fun awaits you.

Max Caballeros was born in Corozal. He's lived in every major town in Belize and northern Guatemala and has been showing people a good time (in two countries) for the vast majority of his life.

He began his career at the age of 17 doing sailing trips between Caye Caulker and Placencia. After 3 years of sailing, Max decided to branch out and moved to San Pedro. After 4 years, Max had mastered the art of snorkelling and then moved to Caye Chapel for the next 3 years. With the snorkelling down pat, diving was next up on the list. Max spent 2 years in Puerto Barrios diving.

After getting his diving certificates, Max stayed in Guatemala for the next 5 years and guided tours in Flores and Rio Dulce. This is where he met his wife and got married.

They moved back to Belize together and Martha's Inn hired him to guide tours to Flores, Tikal, Barton Creek and various river tours. After 4 years, he got a job at the legendary Eva's. When Eva's finally closed it's doors in 2009, Max decided to open Maximum adventure tours. And that is where he is today. Showing people the exciting side of Belize and Guatemala.
