Belize is Going to Get Hauter with Itz’ana Resort & Residences

Belize is working hard to be the next hot destination for luxury travelers. Midway down Central America, Belize is home to some of the worlds best diving sites, with the worlds second largest barrier reef, 900 known Mayan sites and not one McDonalds, Burger King or Starbucks in the entire country. Right on the Caribbean Sea, it is no surprise why a celebrity like Leonardo DiCaprio has already jumped at the chance to buy an island in Belize to build his very own eco-resort and residences.

From the creators of Ka’ana Resort in San Ignacio, Belize; comes Itz’ana Resort and Residences. Located in Placencia, a quiet strip of land on the Caribbean coast, Belize Itz’ana is one of the many new luxury projects coming soon to the tiny country. Named after the Mayan God of Day and Night, Itz’ana is being built in a quaint coastal village. There will be two sizes of villas to choose. Itz’ana offers beachfront villas or villas on the lagoon side of the resort and residences.
