Located in the District

Cayo is the largest district in Belize.   It borders Guatemala in the west and is the home to the capital of Belmopan since 1970 (a very serious hurricane forced the relocation from seaside Belize City) and the town of San Ignacio.

Cayo contains some of the most visited Mayan ruins like Xunantunich, Caracol and as well as farm land, nature reserves, jungle and mountain lodges.


Often visitors to Belize will split there time between a lodge exploring the Cayo district and one of the cayes.  A bit of jungle and a bit of beach.  Perfection.
