A lush region in the interior of Belize, the Cayo District is ideal for those looking to experience nature and the great outdoors.
The hilly terrain is a mixture of secondary rainforest and small rural communities in which we have selected a number of different lodges for our guests. As with most of Belize’s interior, this is a great place to find birdlife.
It is an outdoor lover’s dream with ample opportunity to hike through the jungle to hidden waterfalls, horse ride through forest, and explore huge cave systems.
There are also Mayan sites, including Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, to explore for an insight into the country’s history and culture. You’re also right by the border to Guatemala, making it a convenient and popular stop for those looking to visit both countries.
When to go
From mid-November to late April is the dry season and perfect for a beach holiday. May to June is still okay to travel, although towards July the rainy season is well underway.
