Definitely worth going to! Go early on Saturday morning to capture the freshest fruit and vegetables. Also the market is really lively earlier in the day versus later. A variety of ethnic food can be found for a few dollars so DO NOT eat before...More

No, it is at least an hour away. And, frankly, it is not worth the hour drive. The San Ignacio market is really more of a shopping spot for locals, with lots of fresh produce. The clothing I saw was made in China and... More

Not unless you're taking an excursion to the Cayo District. It's a 30 min flight or couple hour drive. Sorry. :(
