The Cayo district (Belize's largest district) is a very mountainous district, covered by tropical broadleaf forest everywhere and evergreen forest in the Mountain Pine Ridge area.  It is these features that support the vast variety of eco tourism, adventure and sight seeing opportunities that draw visitors from all over the world to Belize' Cayo District.  The tropical climate and rich variety of flora and fauna were helpful in spurring the growth of a vast Mayan Civilizations, the remnants of which have survived to this day and dot the Cayo Districts landscape.   In fact new archaeological finds are being made all the time e.g. ATM Cave, and many more Mayan sites remain hidden in the tropical jungle.  Some of the most powerful Mayan City states such as Caracol are found in the Cayo District.  Some Mayan sites are within easy reach of San Ignacio.
