I played tourist today so I can give you a virtual tour :)
The approach from the market starts with nice sidewalks and a roomy avenue. This is where buses pick up and drop off now.
Continuing on the right are two large buildings, connected by a nice porch. One is a new restaurant, Fuego, which should be opening soon. The next will probably be a restaurant too.
Looking to the left, you can see the public bathrooms (!!!). Those of you who have not been to Belize will not understand how big of a deal this is. Let's just say that if I was in Cayo and really needed a bathroom, my previous choices were to either go to a restaurant and buy something so I could use the bathroom or go home. I haven't been inside yet, but they look really nice from the outside.
Unfortunately the fountains were not turned on today because they were having a craft fair. But they are the kind that shoot up straight from the ground and drain back through the pavement (you can see the grates in the picture)-- ie perfect hot-weather kiddo playground. I checked with the manager, and the water is filtered town water, so safe to play in :)
And as a bonus, here is Burns Ave, the main street in Cayo. After it was repaved (and they found that burial ground) it was decided to keep the street pedestrian only. The restaurants now seat people outside, and in the evenings tourists and locals love to stroll up and down.
That is the best part of this renovation, in my opinion. The area has become a draw for families, and now families play in the park during the day, and take walks down town in the evenings. It has become a true town center. I hope other towns (Benque, please?) can follow San Ignacio's example and create such beautiful areas.
