Holidays in Cayo offer adventure and history in equal measure, with a wealth of ancient sites and unspoiled environment to explore.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Green Iguana Conservation Project and Caracol. Take a break from the city and head to ATM Cave Belize- Actun Tunichil Muknal and MayaWalk Tours. There's still lots to do: Head underground at Barton Creek Cave, admire the masterpieces at Tanah Mayan Art Museum, explore the ancient world of Xunantunich Mayan Ruins, and look for gifts at The Orange Gallery.

For traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Cayo trip itinerary maker site.

Edmonton, Canada to Cayo is an approximately 15-hour flight. Traveling from Edmonton to Cayo, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Caye Caulker.
