Located on the western side of the country, Cayo borders Guatemala and is geographically Belize’s largest district, with a majestic 880,000 acres of protected land in the form of nature reserves and national parks, this district is truly a nature-lover’s dream.. The lively towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena are the travelers most popular stops. Also, the quiet border town of Benque Viejo del Carmen is home to many Mayan settlements as well.

Known as the cultural heart of Belize, Cayo presents a wealth of natural attractions, concentration of Mayan sites, and an excellent display of local cuisine. The district is a perfect base from which to explore pine forests, clear rivers, rocky plateaus, ceremonial caves, towering mountains, ancient Maya Temples and Cascading waterfalls, including spectacular Thousands Foot Falls.

Cayo is, for these many reasons, probably the number one stop for travelers looking to spend a few days in Belize’s mainland.
