Well, we decided to rent a car (anybody know a reasonable one?) Question: approximately how long would it take to travel from san ignacio to placencia village and what would be of interest to see along the way

We used Lewis Rentals last time and was happy at a good price. I have also tried Cristal (good) and Budget...(Dont go there). There is plenty to see and do on the Hummingbird. It is a great drive. You could do it in a couple of hours if you just want to blow on thru. but better to plan on taking most of the day so you can enjoy the ride..The last 30 miles or so to Placincia is rough so plan to stop for beers at every resort that you pass on the way so as to have the proper attitude when you get to Placincia

I agree with the recommendation for Lewis Auto. We use Lewis each time we visit and have never been disappointed in the service. The owner, Kevin Lewis is a native Belizean and runs a fine business. Two hours all the way to the village seems like a very optimistic driving time-- 3 and a half seems more realistic.
The Coxcomb Jaguar Preserve is on the way, but probably deserves a longer visit after getting to Placencia. If you're not going to be able to return for that, you might enjoy stopping off at the craft center in Maya Center at its entrance. I believe that they also now have a butterfly farm. There's a nice family run restaurant in Maya Center and an herbal garden.

That is definitely bad news for us. I hope that it's good news for Kevin. Thanks for sharing the information.
