Inside the Cayo Welcome Center, Fuego Bar & Grill is the most upscale and attractive restaurant in downtown San Ignacio. With its farm-to-table philosophy, Fuego—which was opened by Ian Lizerraga of Ka'ana Resort—uses produce and meats from the San Ignacio market across the street and from local farms. Chef Jesse Mas creates intriguing combinations such as grilled pork chops glazed with coffee and molasses, served with plantains and green beans. The drinks are
interesting, too, such as a chocolate martini and beer with cucumber juice, lime, and salt on the rim. You'll need reservations on weekend nights. A photo gallery highlights local foods. There's outdoor dining and live music some nights.
