“Friends and family stayed here for my mother’s birthday. The place was simply THE best. The staff was amazing. Above and beyond anything we could have imagined. They created a special dinner for our group for her birthday evening (without us asking) and I do mean created. They made dishes they had never made before for us and it was outstanding. Not only that but we asked them if they could make her a birthday dessert, she is not a cake fan so I left it up to them, telling them only that she didn’t like cake but loved fruit. They made the most wonderful fruit tart, it was really a work of art. We almost hated to eat it…almost.
They do have spa, but we didn’t have time to make use of it but given everything else, I’m sure its awesome. The grounds are lovely and serene. The pool is nestled in the middle of the property surrounded by flora and fauna… Okay, I wanna go back…”

Belize is home to a melting pot of cultural and contemporary culinary delights. Tantalizing mixtures of Caribbean spices, African vegetables and even Central American cooking styles can be found throughout the country. Even while living abroad, Belizeans find a way to highlight their culture. Check out what these proud Belizeans are cooking up in Los Angeles and what the LA Times has to say about their food in their “Little Belize” review.

Here at Ka’ana, we grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, lettuce, arugula, bell peppers, tomatoes and potatoes, as well as hot chiles and spicy herbs. Our fruits are of the tropical variety including bananas, papayas, watermelon, pineapple and local exotic fruits such as mammy apples and dragon fruit.
Most of our fruits and vegetables grow all year round. Carrots grow between August and January while broccoli and cauliflower grow between May and August.
We create our own jams and infusions using the fruits and also pickle the vegetables in-house. Produce from our organic garden is incorporated in all of our recipes at La Ceiba to ensure that our guests are always eating healthily and organically.
