Driving Directions From
The International Airport:
from the International Airport by car, follow signs
to ORANGE WALK/COROZAL/MEXICO (left hand turn out of
the airport entrance)
*Travel about 3 miles, at the police checkpoint make
a left turn
*You will come to a round-a-bout (after about 12 miles)
*take the 1st right-hand exit off the round-a-bout,
onto the Western Highway
*Continue on the Western Highway to Belmopan (about
*Pass the turn off to Belmopan (on your left) and continue
driving until you reach the outskirts of San Ignacio
(about another 35 minutes past Belmopan).
Through San Ignacio:
• Routes through San Ignacio are “one way” – in order
to head west through the town, across the Macal River,
you must follow the signs to the Low Lying Bridge. As
you approach San Ignacio, you will be directed to the
Low Lying Bridge. All traffic heading West is directed
this way by a sign marked “Diversion” at the fork in
the road, directly in front of the green and white Social
Security Building. There is no other option for drivers.
• After taking the right fork at the Social Security
building, you will come to a “T” – the Roomba Room sign
will be directly in front of you.
• Make a left turn at the “T” (Roomba Room sign)
• Continue to follow the signs to the Low Lying Bridge.
You will make a right hand turn down a steep hill and
the river will be in front of you – you will then see
the Low Lying Bridge.
• Cross over the Bridge
• Make your first left turn past the Market area (you
will see farmer’s produce stalls on your left), following
the ball-field fence. The fence has advertisements for
local businesses all along it. You can’t miss it.
• You will now be heading to the town “center”.
• You will come to the intersection in the middle of
town (again, can’t miss it), head across the intersection
and a little to the left, up a small hill and past the
Post Office on the right hand side of the road. The
Belize bank will be on your left. You want to follow
the road that goes between the Bank and the Post Office
(Hudson Road). It is not “straight” across the intersection
so I make sure to find those landmarks.
• At the top of the hill (about 100 yards) make your
first left turn onto King Street.
• Ahead of you, you will see the Iron Bridge crossing
back over the River, and the large District Commissioner’s
building before the bridge on the right-hand corner.
• Turn right up the hill (in front of the District Commissioner’s
building) onto Buena Vista Road. This hill is very steep.
• As a landmark – you will pass the San Ignacio Hotel,
on your left, at the top of the hill
• You are now out of San Ignacio!

right hand turn – follow the signs to Black Rock Lodge

that you’ve made it.

join us for a cool drink as we welcome you.
