Few things bond families like traveling together, and few journeys can do that better than a family vacation to Belize. Our tropical country truly has something for everyone, and travelers of all ages will find the right balance of adventure, culture and relaxation, right here at Ka'ana. Here's how to have the best family vacation ever in Belize.
A multi-generational getaway requires lots of adventure for the young and young-at-heart. Here in Belize, expect fun for the whole family as you go horseback riding through the jungle, climbing ancient Maya temples, and careen across the forest canopy on zipline. Another favorite for everyone looking to get their hands dirty is the stunning ATM Cave. Famous for its series of archeological artifacts and ancient skeletons, it's also an adrenaline rush: visitors wade across underground rivers, squeeze through tight crevasses, and round dark corners. For a more relaxed outdoor adventure, head into the jungles on a hike, where you and the family can discover the gorgeous birds of Belize.
Further afield, Belize's barrier reef—the largest outside of Australia and our famous Blue Hole beckons. Its pristine waters, teem with wildlife, making for an unforgettable diving and snorkeling experience.
Want to see it all from above? Take the family on an epic helicopter tour, flying over waterfalls, jungles, Maya ruins, and coral reefs.
There's more to a family vacation here than outdoor fun, though, and everyone in your family will appreciate the unique cultural activities they can experience. Of course, there is exploring the abundance of Maya ruins, like the nearby Xunantunich—an ancient ceremonial site. But Belize's culture isn't stuck in the past. Visit San Ignacio, just a short drive from Ka'ana, for a glimpse into contemporary Belize, with a popular local market and great restaurants. And even experience right on property a Maya Cooking class the family can particpate in.
A major component of a family getaway to Belize is quality rest and relaxation. Be it a dip in the pool, an outdoor yoga session, or a parents' spa retreat, Ka'ana provides the perfect setting for peaceful, indulgent moments. After a blissful afternoon nap in your zen-like room or private hammock, converge with loved ones over locally-grown food—and Belize-inspired cocktails for the adults—at dinner to discuss the next day's activities, or even plan your return visit next year!
