Belize is paradise for anyone looking for an adventure or for a relaxing day filled with Maya spa treatments. Why not both? When you stay with us at Ka’ana resort, you can explore ancient ruins, and then relax by the pool all in the same day. Here’s our guide to the perfect day at Ka’ana.
Wake up to tropical birds singing and make your way to La Ceiba restaurant for a traditional Belizean breakfast: fresh juices, tropical fruit and eggs with refried beans, ham and hot fry jacks—our take on fried dough. Fuel up because it’s going to be an eventful day!
11AM: Horseback ride to ruins
Why go on foot, when you can go by horseback? Visit Hanna’s Stables and take a ride across the 400 acres of farmlands surrounding our resort. Ride through mountainous jungles to Xunantunich ruins, where you can explore ancient Maya temples with an archeologist as your personal guide. A picnic lunch amongst the ruins is a well-deserved break.
3PM: Spa treatment and swim
After riding back to Ka’ana, it’s time to relax with an afternoon dip in the pool and a spa appointment from our world-class practitioners. Try a traditional massage using ancient practices—after all of that traveling and exploring, it’s important to flush out the chi and fluids in your circulatory system. After the massage soothes the body, it’s time to for a quick afternoon nap. Rest in a hammock or poolside lounge as the sounds of the jungle lull you to sleep.
5PM: Cocktail or cooking class
Wake up refreshed and take a lesson from one of our bartenders at our bar, The Wallace, to hone your cocktail skills. Learn how to make specialty drinks like “Down the Hatch,” a tequila-infused medley that uses homegrown jalapeños from our garden. If cocktails aren’t your thing, that’s okay too. You can also learn how to cook traditional Maya food with one of our chefs as your teacher. We recommend the tamales!
Sit down for a delicious Belizean meal. For an extra special experience, take dinner al fresco—by the pool, on the yoga deck, by the firepit, or in the gardens. Enjoy local favorites like dukunu, a dish similar to polenta using local Maya corn. Choose a special bottle of wine to enjoy from our wine cellar’s selection of 2,000 bottles and drink it under the stars.
10PM: More cocktails
Now that you’ve perfected the art of making cocktails, let our skilled bartenders do the lifting, crafting you a drink or two at The Wallace.
Bed time. Fall asleep on your comfortable bed knowing that more adventure awaits tomorrow.
