An hour’s drive from the capital of Belmopan, San Ignacio keeps you within reach of the protected areas that make up 60% of the region. Most of the iconic Mayan ruins that draw travellers towards Belize are in Cayo, with Xunantunich and Cahal Pech both within its borders. Fringed by the epic Maya Mountains, vast networks and caves are hidden within the dense jungles and rainforests of Cayo. Begin your own adventure and explore above andbelow the surface in this fascinating area of Belize.
Belize’s long dry season brings with it the largest crowds, but the sunny conditions make it worth planning ahead. With daytime temperatures often above 25°C, it’s usually the most pleasant time of year for spending a lot of time outdoors.
