Two questions about travel to St Ignacio and ATM tour

Is it common for most people to fly into Belize City and then use ground transport to St. Ignacio?

Is St. Ignacio a good place to stay for a couple of days if we want a little jungle and ATM or other Cave touring for a few days before we go to one of the Cayes?

TIA!

"Is it common for most people to fly into Belize City and then use ground transport to St. Ignacio?"

I'd say it is a common way to go. Either arrange for a transfer service to meet you at the airport, or taxi to the bus terminal in Belize City and get a bus. The other option is a domestic flight with Tropic Air.

San Ignacio is an excellent base for those activities. The town is small & safe and has a lot of accommodation choices for any budget. You can arrange tours with one of the tour companies in town, and there's a tourist information centre called the Cayo Welcome Centre.

Another option is to stay in one of the jungle lodges in the rain-forest.
