Crawl All Over Caana in the Cayo District

Did you know that the tallest building in Belize was built centuries ago right here in the Cayo District? This historical building is named Caana — which literally means sky palace. And a sky palace it truly is, covering the equivalent of seventy-five square miles, complete with a pyramid, four palaces, and three temples. At the height of Uxwitza rule, Caana was the epicenter of the entire city. Making it the main point of contact of anything important that took place in the Cayo District. 

These spectacular ruins were found in 1938, they were immediately preserved and celebrated. Today, you can take a tour to see this amazing, historical sight — it has since become an important point of interest in the Cayo District.
