Cayo District

Call 01242 547 701 to speak to a specialist Enquire


The Cayo District is the largest district in Belize and could also be called the 'Highlands of Belize'. It is probably the most visited of the inland areas of Belize and encompasses farmlands, rainforest and pineforest. The district encompasses the national capital of Belmopan, the tourist town of San Ignacio, Mennonite communities such as Spanish Lookout, key archaeology sites such as Xunantunich, Cahal Pech, and Caracol, major rivers such as the Macal  and Mopan River, famous caves like Barton Creek, Chechem Ha and Aktun Tunichil Muknal.  There is really a huge amount to do and see within this central area of Belize.
