Belize Jungle Vacation Destinations

The three main Belize jungle vacation destinations are Cayo, Toledo and Orange Walk.

Belize - Cayo District Tours and Activities

Hidden Valley Orchid WaterfallGuatemala is on the western boundary of Belize's inland Cayo District.  San Ignacio is the main town, and most of Belize's most well-known jungle vacation lodges, sites and activities are located in Cayo - such as the Xunantunich Mayan ruins, cave tubing, Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, Chaa Creek, duPlooy's, Banana Bank and Black Rock.

Cayo is the the area most travelers visit for their first taste of the Belize jungle, often because they want to try a specific jungle activity, such as cave tubing, or have heard of a specific jungle lodge, such as Chaa Creek, or want to see a specific site, such as the El Pilar Archaeological Reserve for Maya flora and fauna .

And, it's true, the Cayo District offers lots to see and do, and a wide variety of places to stay.

For example, in addition to the Xunantunich and El Pilar Mayan ruins, Belize vacation visitors can also tour Cahal Pech and Caracol (the largest Mayan ruins in Belize - and an ancient Mayan city-state that rivaled Tikal).


Belize Jungle Vacations in the Toledo District

In short, Toledo is different - in many ways like the Belize of 100 years ago - when every trip was a journey, full of unexpected pleasures and delights for those willing to take the time to see and discover them.
