Being that San Ignacio, in the Cayo District in Belize is a small town of more or less 20,000 people, the nightlife isn’t exceptional. There are plenty of bars and restaurants. There is a casino and a few nightclubs. It’s not bad, but compared to what people who are coming from a big city are used to, it’s a lot smaller. It’s nothing that people are used to but I find enjoyable when I go out.
There are bars or nightclubs. They offer dancing and you also have the casino. Probably the most popular place for people to go out at night in San Ignacio is the casino because they have a nightclub, a bar, and the casino itself, which offers slot machines, blackjack, roulette, and so forth.
There are no comedy clubs here. There have been theaters but they just haven’t survived. Out in the park, there is a place called the Welcome Center, which is a tourist-oriented location downtown. They have little shops, restaurants, coffee houses, benches you can sit on, and areas where you can walk around. That is also a popular place for people to go out at night and buy ice cream or any snack. On weekends, sometimes they have a public movie showing. They have a big screen and people can come bring a chair and watch the show. They also have some shows on weekends such as a cultural dance, or church groups go there and have a sermon. If you want to do something in that area, you can just reserve the location. Then everybody can stop by and see what your activity is.
People from San Ignacio also get in their cars and go to Belmopan or Belize City for some nightlife. Belize City has some larger nightclubs and casinos. I have done it on some occasions.
