San Ignacio and Santa Elena are towns in western #Belize. San Ignacio serves as the capital of Cayo District.
Hawksworth Bridge is a one lane suspension bridge in San Ignacio, Belize. Built in 1949 and imported from Middlesbrough, England, it crosses the Macal River linking San Ignacio to its sister-town Santa Elena.
The town was originally named El Cayo by the Spanish. On October 19, 1904, El Cayo was officially declared a town by the government of British Honduras.
San Ignacio is situated on the banks of the Macal and Mopan Rivers, about 68.5 miles (115 kilometres) west of Belize City and 22 miles (35 km) west of the country's capital, Belmopan.
