Xunantunich Maya Site – A popular attraction in Cayo Belize

Cayo is full of winding rivers, majestic waterfalls, mysterious caves and breath-taking mountains that engulf a tiny national capital and grand Maya cities. With surroundings so intimate, you can be one with all these genuine experiences.

Explore the largest district in Belize (home of the capital city of Belmopan), and you are rewarded with a treasure of eco-tourism adventures. With an astonishing 880,000 acres of protected land in the form of nature reserves and national parks, this district is truly a dream for an adventure traveler or couple looking for a unique, memorable excursion to add to a honeymoonpackage. On a trip to Cayo, you can explore temples by day and journey to nearby beaches of adjoining districts in time for sunset.

Countryside accommodationsrange from elegant jungle lodges to small resorts and intimate campsites. The lively twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena and the quiet border town of Benque Viejo del Carmen provide glimpses into the lives of the friendly residents. They also serve as an excellent base from which to explore pine forests, clear rivers, rocky plateaus, ceremonial caves, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls and ancient Maya temples. Once you are in Cayo, open your soul to amazing experiences. You will find soul-stirring things to do in Belize.
