Located on-site, the Green Iguana Conservation Project is an interactive exhibit that educates guests on the life of Green Iguanas and allows for an up close and personal experience with the reptile. This self-sustained project, which began in 1996, allows guests to participate in their “Adopt an Iguana Program” and the “Iguana Kids Club," two programs aimed at fostering relationships between the species and visitors.

In contrast, guests looking to learn more about Belize’s foliage and how it plays a role in the ecosystem, can do so on the tour of medicinal plants and herbs found within the resort’s 17-acre private estate. 

The guided tour will take participants on hiking trails through lush tropical rainforests for a hands-on educational tour of natural remedies that were used by the Mayan community to heal numerous illnesses. Onsite bird watching is another amenity offered by San Ignacio Resort Hotel in which an experienced guide walks guests through the Belize jungle in the early morning to enjoy the sights and sounds of San Ignacio’s feathery friends. 

Off-property tours and activities that can be arranged onsite at San Ignacio Resort Hotel are day tours to the Maya Ruins, such as Xunantunich, Tikal and Caracol, as well as caving and tubing, zip lining and Macal River canoeing.
