Ka’ana Belize: An Adventure in Luxury

Sometimes you want to get away from it all and wander through the beauty of nature. Sometimes you want to relax in luxury, all your needs met without you lifting a finger.

You can get the best of both worlds at the lovely Ka’ana Boutique Resort in Western Belize. Our Villa Experience is designed to fill your days with adventure and your nights with luxury—and we take care of everything.

Your adventure begins with a helicopter flight over verdant rainforests split by breathtaking waterfalls. Your personal butler will meet you at the on-site helipad and take you to your private pool villa, where your personal garden, outdoor showers and many more luxurious amenities awaits you. Relax with the first of many crafted cocktails (we recommend the Mango Habanero Margarita) while you plan your itinerary for the next few days.


You might start your first day on horseback, taking a lazy trail ride through the jungle to visit the Mayan temple nearby. It’s a steep hike to the top, but the view is worth every step. Unwind in the evening by your personal plunge pool, or book a traditional Mayan massage to end the day feeling totally relaxed.


On day two, the adventure kicks up a notch with a trip to Actun Tunichil Muknal. This ancient Mayan worship site is found deep inside mountain caves—and you can only get to them by swimming through a sacred hourglass-shaped rock pool. Once inside, marvel at naturally-formed cathedrals hundreds of feet high, once the sites of sacrificial ceremonies. A special dinner on the fire deck awaits you when you return.


Your third day combines eastern and western spiritual practice with a private morning yoga session at the Xunantunich temples near Ka’ana. Explore the local culture that afternoon in the town of San Ignacio, where you can wander through the farmer’s market or enjoy a traditional Belizean lunch. Finish out the day with an international trip – for drinks on top of a Mayan temple in Guatemala. The border is just a few kilometers from the resort!


Day four will fly by! Take to the air and spend the morning on a zip line course through the jungle. Once you’ve gotten up close and personal with the lush treetops, sharpen a skill or two with one of our on-site classes in mixology or Mayan cooking. Enjoy a private destination dinner anywhere on our grounds to end the day.


And that’s just a four-day plan! Our Villa Experience offers the perfect blend of adventure and luxury for as many days as you like – which is good, because once you’ve spent a few days in our slice of paradise, you might never want to leave.
