Canoe to San Ignacio on the Macal River
Yearning to get out on the water? Rent a canoe or kayak from Mystic River Resort for a small fee, and paddle your way down to San Ignacio, a two hour river ride away (river conditions permitting). It’s one of the best bargains for adventure travel in Belize! We’ll be happy to pick you up once you arrive, or – should you decide to do a bit of shopping or visit some of our local artists – taxis are readily available to take you back to the resort at your own leisure. Saturday is the busiest market day and your canoe journey begins at Mystic River and ends near the market square in San Ignacio.
Alternatively, you can add a guided day trip trip to Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, two Mayan ruins, to make your canoe journey into a full day of adventure and exploration.
Too long of a trek? Take a tube trip from upriver, where we drop you at an entry point in the river and , after a short 60 minutes on the water, you arrive back at Mystic River Resort’s “Pebble Beach”.
We also offer white water kayaking on the Mopan River for the more exciting options on the beautiful jungle waterways here in Cayo.
After all, this is your vacation and we are here to make sure you have a memorable time, whatever you decide to do to occupy your days in Belize. Ecotourism, adventure travel, or just plain relaxation – we’ll give you what you want on your Belize vacation! Contact us to find out more!
