Kanantik Resort, Dangriga

Dangriga, Belize

Our readers say: “A peaceful escape awaits” at this eco-hideaway on 300 jungle acres between Dangriga and Placencia. Opened in 2002 by an Italian businessman, Kanantik, which means “to take care” in Mayan Mopan, is four miles from the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (a jaguar preserve) and a short boat ride from the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Dotting the beach, Mayan thatched-roof cabanas have canopied beds, wood floors, and wraparound decks. The restaurant features fresh catch and organic produce grown on-site and makes its own breads, tortilla chips, and jams. “Staff are warm and polished.”
