Vacation within the lush Belize jungle
The dichotomy of Belize makes it one of the most intriguing vacation spots in the Caribbean. The eastern half of the country sits on the Caribbean Sea. It has stellar beaches and is known for its famous Great Blue Hole. However, the western portion of this Central American country has a verdant jungle and a unique history.
The Maya civilization once inhabited much of Belize. These ancient people built temples throughout Central America. Abruptly, the Mayans disappeared around 900AD and their structures turned to ruins. Ka’ana Resort and Spa sits nestled in the jungle that the ancient Mayans once inhabited. In fact, the resort takes its name from its location. Ka’ana translates to “Heavenly Place.”
The verdant Belize jungle surrounds the guest quarters yet the accommodations have a light and airy atmosphere. The Master Suite provides 700 square feet of living space with front and back decks. An enclosed garden provides a secluded space. Even bathing in the private outdoor shower is a one-of-a-kind experience.
