Welcome to Spanish Lookout
With its broad, ordered streets lined with transplanted palm trees, neat farmland, huge factories and modern stores (hardware is popular here!), Spanish Lookout appears a little incongruous in this part of Cayo, but it's a great place to see Mennonites' industriousness in action. They are the country's primary producers of dairy, meat, poultry and produce: here in Spanish Lookout you will find Quality Chicken, the biggest poultry producer, as well as Western Dairy, the only commercial dairy. They're also renowned builders – many of the cabins and cabañas you might stay in were probably built right here. Although Mennonites are known for eschewing modern conveniences, you'll see more cars and tractors here than horse and carts.
