At a recent sales meeting for the Signature Travel Network, a presentation was made about today’s affluent traveler and their different market segments. These included Active & Adventure, Beach Resorts, Family & Friends Travel, and Culture & Discovery. With that said we’ve gotten a number of people who’ve asked about the third market share on that list and whether or not Ka’ana – this luxury resort in San Ignacio – is also a Belize family resort. Yes we are! As an inland resort, our appeal is the ability to do adventure touring and children about 5 years and older are in absolute heaven here. The ability to play in the jungle, ride horses, swim in caves, zip line and climb Mayan sites is unparalleled, not to mention that it ensures a good night’s sleep at the end of the day.
Our proximity to the major touring attractions means minimum travel time and maximum adventure time. At Ka’ana Belize Resort, we thoughtfully combine the comfort and elegance of a modern resort with a friendly, welcoming ambiance for those seeking a relaxing Belize family vacation. Children under the age of 12 stay absolutely free when sharing rooms with an adult. Extra beds and babysitting services are also provided upon request for a minimal fee.
If you choose to stay on site our amenities include complimentary wireless internet access, televisions with DVD players and an outdoor Infinity pool. You can even get involved in preparing your own meals by joining a Culinary Class at our restaurant which provides healthy, well-balanced meals with fresh local ingredients sourced from our on-site Belize organic garden. Our Culinary Team will gladly tweak their gourmet menu to please younger palates.
For those who read this blog and are still thinking about that last market share, the “Culture & Discovery” one, stay tuned for our next blog post that will introduce some incredible new touring options that immerse travelers in the culture and facilitate the discovery.
