“Cayo was once the heart of the Maya civilization, rich with archaeological sites such as Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, which is believed to have been the longest established Maya site in Belize.

It is not only the ancient history that sets this district apart. It’s the diverse culture, the rugged beauty of its region with jagged limestone hills, lush rainforests entwined with rivers, magnificent Maya temples, waterfalls and ecological reserves which also make it a predominant destination for active adventurers.” – The Belize Collection

Builders & Developers

Macal River Estates (MRE) is a beautifully maintained and very uniquely located subdivision on the southern edge of the village of Cristo Rey in far western Belize. Cristo Rey Village is located just 4 ½ miles outside of the twin cities of San Ignacio / Santa Elena along the scenic Macal River. The Macal borders MRE on the west, then it joins the Mopan River near the town center of San Ignacio where the two form the Belize River flowing to the Caribbean Sea.

Just to the south of MRE lies the Table Rock Jungle Lodge, an award-winning Ecolodge. Bordering MRE to the north is the Crystal Paradise Resort, a beautiful Mayan family-owned and operated resort. The Macal River forms the MRE border to the west, and to the east lies the recently paved highway running through the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve toward the enchanting Mayan ruins of Caracol.
