Just one more question, will I find a bank, even a small one, in San Ignacio to change travelers checks for cash or should I do that in BC? The road to San Ignacio, is that a fairly well traveled road? We will be traveling it during the day but I'm still a little nervous. I have friends that keep telling me not to worry, they will pay the ransom but all I have read and heard about is what an awsome experience Belize was and how hospitable their hosts were!! I'm hoping this is the case!
