Ka’ana Hotel

Mile 69¼ Western Hwy., San Ignacio, Cayo District, Belize

Ka’ana is described as a “boutique resort,” and it appeals to guests who want a sense of being in the Belizean rain forest while also enjoying the comforts and amenities of a full-service resort. Rooms and villas here seem to blend into the jungle, but it’s clear that all is carefully tamed to ensure that guests don’t feel overwhelmed by the wildness. Rooms are decorated in earth tones, with textiles and design accents all locally crafted. Furniture is sturdy local hardwood. Master suites have outdoor showers, and there are two spacious, private villas, each with its own plunge pool, garden, and outdoor terrace, among other luxuries. Staff can arrange land and sea excursions to the country’s most popular cultural, historic, and natural sites.

Drink a Sweet Corn Colada at Ka'ana Belize

Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite drinks in Belize! It may sound a bit strange, but the sweet corn colada is definitely a cocktail to seek out at Cayo District’s Ka’ana Belize Resort. Sweet corn is grown in various parts of Belize, including Cayo, Toledo and parts of Orange Walk, and Ka’ana does an excellent job at showcasing the diversity of this Belizean culinary staple. Look for sweet corn tacos and even gelato on the menu! My favorite is the Sweet Corn Colada though. Laced with rum, this uniquely Belizean cocktail comes complete with a cinnamon stick. Even if you are not a guest at Ka’ana, stop by the restaurant for dinner and drinks – you won’t be disappointed!
