Where is Santa Elena?
Santa Elena is in the Cayo district. It is the twin city of San Ignacio, Belize’s second biggest city. Cayo has attracted many Expats because of its beauty and climate: Tropical, yet with cool nights, breezes, fewer insect due to the elevation and out of the coastal hurricane zone.
Where’s the beach?
While Belize has many of them, there’s none in Santa Elena. San Ignacio/Santa Elena are about 2 hour’s drive from the ocean. How ever…. The river is very close and has some nice swimming places.
