Charming small towns, lush tropical forests and the Macal and Mopan rivers await you here. Take some time for there is much to see: lush tropical rainforest, the Mountain Pine Ridge, which is rich with waterfalls, pools, and limestone cave systems, that lead you into the Maya underworld.
Visit the capital city Belmopan or the twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena, with the beautiful Macal River running through them. These hillside towns bustle with activity where you will find Maya, Mestizo, and Mennonites selling their wares, with everyone speaking English and Spanish. Cayo is also known as the second largest district of Belize. You can get to Cayo via the George Price Highway (western highway), which starts at the intersection of Central American Boulevard and Cemetery Road in Belize City. From here you are an hour or two away from a charming, exotic adventure.
