San Ignacio & Cayo District

Cayo District is the rarest of surprises, a world class eco-tourism vacation-destination that refuses to sell out. No high-rise hotels here … Instead Belize offers its commitment to conservation and eco tourism with an astonishing 880,000 acres of protected areas, nature reserves, and national parks within the 2,000 square miles that make up Cayo District. Cayo offers an exciting blend of Adventure and Eco tourism. A place filled with vast areas of jungle rain-forests, picturesque rivers, waterfalls and caves, along with a people who embrace a remarkable cultural diversity and harmony. Add to this an array of things to do, along with good travel-related visitor services and it’s easy to see why Cayo District is a favorite vacation destination for the Eco-tourist and Adventure-traveler.
San Ignacio Town is the hub of commerce and tourism for Cayo District, and along with its sister town – Santa Elena – make up the largest populated area in the District, with a mere 22,000 residents. Located along the banks of the Macal River, on a series of bluffs, San Ignacio known locally as “Cayo”, is conveniently located less than two-hours by road from both Belize City and Tikal in Guatemala.
