It's been an amazing year for us here at Ka'ana, and we've loved sharing it with you. From epic visits to the Xunantunich ruins to quiet afternoons spent poolside, the Ka'ana experience has found its way from the jungles of Belize to screens around the world. Here, we take a look back at just a few of the year's highlights on Instagram.
This August, lifestyle expert Essie paid a visit to Ka'ana, where she discovered the charms of jungle life: "The private villas at Ka'ana are a dream," she posted. "Gorgeous decor, private pool, plus staff that feel like family...good vibes only."
@a_life_less_square_ brought the kids along on her trip to Belize, where they visited the nearby ruins of Xunantunich. "Brandon, our guide from Ka'ana Resort, insured we had a great time, pointing out a King Vulture and the view to Guatemala, not to mention story-telling to the children on the sites' Maya history."
"A little morning yoga before cave tubing," wrote guests from Ama La Vida Coaching.
Recent guest Holly had a chance to learn the authentic way to make tamales Belize-style during one our our Maya cooking classes.
The pool was a highlight for multiple guests, who describe it as "gorgeous" and "fantastic," and who loved that it was open 24-hours a day.
In the underground caves of Actun Tunichil Muknal, near our resort, travelers can step back in time. The Maya site is home to skeletons, ceramics and stoneware, as well as beautiful cave pools. In his TripAdvisor review of his stay at Ka'ana, recent guest Eric described the excursion as a "life-changing morning journey into the depths of Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave...complete with a picnic lunch on return (we highly recommend you have the staff arrange a visit with Aaron from Mayawalk as your guide). Lush rainforests, hiking, and kayaking opportunities abound in the area."
Colorful architecture is par for course in downtown San Ignacio, just a few minutes' drive away from our jungle retreat. The second largest city in Belize, it started as a center for mahogany and rubber production.
This couple took their wedding pictures to new heights, opting for a jungle setting at the historic Maya ruins of Xunantunich.
The real beauty of Belize is its friendly people. Chief among them? Our staff! Here, recent guest Valorie shows Rico, one of our attendants, on his way with some much needed poolside refreshments.
Thank you so much to everyone who's been posting about their experiences at Ka'ana! We hope to welcome you again soon.
