Holidays in Cayo offer adventure and history in equal measure, with a wealth of ancient sites and unspoiled environment to explore.
Maya Guide Adventures has been added to your itinerary. Let the collections at Tanah Mayan Art Museum and Chaa Creek Natural History Museum capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rio On Pools and Big Rock Falls. Change things up with a short trip to Half Moon Caye National Monument in Glovers Reef Atoll (about 6h 15 min away). There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Belize Botanic Gardens, stop by The Orange Gallery, tour the pleasant surroundings at St Herman's Cave, and make a trip to El Pilar.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cayo trip itinerary maker app.

New York City, USA to Cayo is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of flight, car, and bus. You can also do a combination of flight, shuttle, bus, and car; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from New York City to Cayo. In January, Cayo is warmer than New York City - with highs of °F and lows of °F. You'll have a few hours on the 14th (Mon) to wrap things up before traveling to Caye Caulker.

Caye Caulker

At just under 8 km (5 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide, the limestone coral island of Caye Caulker offers a small but perfectly formed getaway 32 km (20 mi) offshore from Belize City.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Aria Kat Art and Red Flower Gallery. Explore hidden gems such as Shark Ray Alley and Turneffe Reef. There's still lots to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, head outdoors with Anglers Abroad, enjoy the sand and surf at The Split, and get interesting insight from Tours.

To find more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read our Caye Caulker day trip planner.

You can do a combination of car, bus, and ferry from Cayo to Caye Caulker in 5.5 hours. Another option is to drive. Expect a daytime high around °F in January, and nighttime lows around °F. On the 20th (Sun), you'll travel to Belize City.
