Slomom, Not far from what I am told. This will be my first trip to the Cayo district. I know that San Ignacio is suppose to be within walking distance and the local ruins are close. We are renting a car so that we can make the trips to some of the areas attractions on our own. Shalue at Aguada is helping us arrange the trips to places like the caves and Tikal. Aguada got good reviews in Fodor's, the travel book. I have been reading this message board for months and have seen postings before and after trips. Go with the recommendations of these guys. They know what they are talking about! Where are staying on AC? When are you going?
