Discover: Belize’s Hamanasi Resort

Discover: Belize’s Hamanasi Resort

This past summer my family and I had the privilege of visiting the Hamanasi Adventure & Dive Resort, an award winning eco resort located in Hopkins Village on the Southern coast of picturesque Belize. Set on 30 acres amid a coastal forest with limited Wi-Fi, the resort is sure to give you an escape and let you unplug from the rest of the world.

Secluded with its own jungle path in the rainforest canopy, our luxurious “Deluxe Tree House” was decorated with handcrafted Belizean furniture, wrap around windows, and our very own outside private Jacuzzi surrounded by the sound of tropical birds, iguanas, and gorgeous flowers throughout. Our spacious tree house included a stocked mini bar, a dining table for the nights we wanted room service, and a locally hand made hammock which hung right outside our door.

Whether you are looking for a romantic relaxing getaway or a trip packed with adventure the amazing staff is there to ensure that you have the trip of a lifetime. From hiking through Cockscomb Basin Sanctuary and Jaguar Preserve, to the Mayan pyramids deep in the rainforest, to diving some of the most pristine reefs Belize has to offer, Hamanasi’s knowledgeable guides were there every step of the way making sure we were safe, enjoying our adventures, and learning about the Belizean culture along the way.

Fun fact: The Mayan people were the first humans to cultivate cacao!

Your daily adventures will begin and end with endless stares of the friendly iguanas who live amidst the jungle canopy of your private tree house. They are big, colorful and if you are not looking for them you will more than likely not be able to see them standing right in front of you.

Whether you are on your honeymoon, celebrating your anniversary, on a family vacation, or simply there to explore, you are sure to have an UNBELIZEABLE trip.

Love,
Elona
