Collared peccary on Belize road – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingYou do not need a four-wheel drive to get around in San Ignacio, Belize. Most of the roads are paved or cemented and they're getting better.  As I speak, they are paving more roads in San Ignacio and Santa Elena (the “twin towns”; the largest towns in the Cayo District).
 
It would be better to have an SUV or a pickup truck than it would be to have a sedan, but it doesn't need to be a four-wheel drive. The reason I recommend these is to get the higher clearance, but not necessarily because you will get stuck.  Sometimes there are bumps or maybe rocks in the road that if you don't have enough clearance the tummy of your car will rattle.

Jungle land, Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe roads in the town of San Ignacio are very good. They’ve been cemented recently. We have dirt roads everywhere but they are in good condition. The highways are all paved.
 
You do not need a four-wheel drive in Cayo. I have four-wheel drive for my work because many times I go to the jungle in the rainy season but otherwise, you don’t need it.
 
San Ignacio is 10 miles to the Guatemalan border, which makes San Ignacio a good base to travel from if you want to travel to Guatemala, Honduras, or Salvador.
