A Glimpse of Belize in HD

The Belize Tourism Board has posted a video from Travel and Leisure that's all about Belize.  Cayo is all over it, from the Blue Hole to Big Rock Falls, to Caracol.  They have some good video from ziplining, hiking in the jungle, cave tubing, and horseback riding.  It's a well done video, and was shot in high definition. 

 

"Belize, the only English-speaking country in Central America, offers a unique combination of richly, rewarding experiences that make it unlike any destination on the planet.  Swim with the exotic sea life along the Western Hemisphere's largets barrier reef. Explore the fascinating mysteries of the largest concentration of Maya sites in the region."

Three Perfect Days in Belize

Three Perfect Days in Belize | Dive and travel Belize | Scoop.it

Cayo gots an amazing write up in the February edition of Hemispheres Magazine.  Caracol, Rio Frio Cave, and MPR are described and shown in pictures.  Blancaneaux Lodge is where the author stayed, and it gets a great review.  The Flavors of Belize cookbook also got a great mention in the article too.

 

"You stop at a military checkpoint, then proceed to the Rio Frio Cave.  Belize is riddled with caves, many of which contain human remains.  The Maya would perform ritual sacrifices in these places because they believed they were portals to the underworld, through which the Sun God, in the form of a jaguar, would travel at dusk.  The Rio Frio Cave is open-ended, so it wasn’t used for sacrifices—but it was used, as evidenced by the Mayan pottery fragments scattered around.  The crown jewel of the Cayo region is Caracol, a sprawling ruin that once was one of the most powerful cities in the Mayan world.  At its peak there were maybe 150,000 people living here, roughly half the present population of Belize, and the whole city was clad in plaster.  It was mysteriously abandoned 1,200 years ago and rediscovered by a logger in 1937."

Lonely Planet Ranks Belize as Most Family Friendly

Lonely Planet Ranks Belize as Most Family Friendly | Dive and travel Belize | Scoop.it

Lonely Planet released their list of the most family friendly places, and Belize is listed first.  Cayo is mentioned, of course, and the picture is Caracol.

 

"But the interior doesn’t mean sacrificing fun in the water, with underground rivers to tube, jungle lodges on swimming holes and Mayan ruins reached by boat.  If you rent a car, a tad pricey (about US$80 per day), you can connect a few dots at your own leisure.  For an unforgettable stay, try the remote and family-friendly Barton Creek Outpost in the Cayo District, with a rope swing on the country’s finest swimming hole.  And pull in for Garifuna drum lessons at the laid-back beach of Hopkins."

Wildlife in the Cayo District

Wildlife in the Cayo District | Dive and travel Belize | Scoop.it

Nice article with some great pictures about a Belize vacation, with 4 days in Cayo.  They really caught some spectacular shots of everything from basalisks to hummingbirds to owls.  They rave about how much they loved Pook's Hill the most.

 

"Of the four places we stayed on the trip, Pook’s Hill was undeniably my favorite and I think everyone else would agree.  The accommodations were excellent, the food extraordinary, and the owner and all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and seemed thrilled to have us stay and enjoy their little place in paradise.  Wandering the grounds were a few prehistoric-looking Basilisk Lizards generally sunning themselves and waiting for flying insects, such as this male...  Another fascinating experience at Pook’s Hill was listening to a mating pair of Spectacled Owls calling to each other from their hidden perches near our cabanas at dusk, and one night spotting an immature sitting in a leafless tree, apparently not yet having learned the importance of leaves for concealing your presence."
