On December 2, 2012 Belize officially opened a new Welcome and Town Center in San Ignacio, Western Belize. It is easily accessible by public transportation and only 9 miles from Lower Dover.

The Belize Tourist Board ushered in the new center with the Taste of Belize BBQ & Food Festival. Early in the day there was a BBQ competition where locals showed off their grilling skills. There was live music in the amphitheater, and plenty of Belizean food to sample.

There was plenty of local Belizean cuisine, including Stew Chicken, Rice and Beans, and lots of delicious BBQ. It was a nice to see a good diversity of food, we even found Thai Food! Pictured above is the Bamboo Bar and Thai Restaurant, which is located in the new town center. It is the only Thai Restaurant in Belize and the most authentic we’ve tried outside of Thailand.
