And just like that, it’s August. The kids went to summer camp. You bought a new swimsuit and got the fit just right. You banked enough vacation days to make a trip worthwhile. There’s only one thing missing. You forgot to book a place. Now you’re thinking it’s too late. That you best wait until next summer and try this all again. Fortunately, The Belize Collection has something special for you at this late summer hour: two last-chance family summer getaway specials that take all the guesswork and anxiety out of your dream vacation.
Umaya Resort is the perfect opportunity for you and the family to get away from everyday life and experience one of the most serene and dynamic spaces in Belize. With its two-bedroom suites, a kitchen with all you need to make your vacation favorites, and two restaurants for when you rather have someone else take over the cooking duties, Umaya provides just the right balance to make it a favorite among families.
Unique among The Belize Collection’s offerings, Umaya is celebrated by guests and locals for its access to both the Caribbean Sea and the stunning Placencia lagoon. It’s the only resort in Placencia where you can follow the sun from sunrise to sunset. With this diversity of outdoor space, your kids will have plenty to do throughout the day between games of beach volleyball, swimming at the pool, or watching the rich animal life that teems throughout the peninsula. It also gives you and the kids a chance to try out new experiences with kayaks and paddleboards available to take you out on the waters.
While you and the kids can play all day, there are also plenty of opportunities for romance and tranquility. Visit the lagoon near sunset for an incredible view as the sun descends behind the Maya Mountains, doubling in its beauty with its reflection in the lagoon. Enjoy a cocktail or mocktail with appetizers at Restaurante Laguna while the resort staff prepares the bonfire you requested right along the lagoon. Enjoy an evening in the company of your loved ones as the lagoon’s nocturnal life comes to life.
Should you feel the need to venture out of the resort, you’ve got plenty of options there as well. Borrow one of the resort’s complimentary bicycles and coast along the peninsula to take in other sights Placencia has to offer. Not into cycling? No problem. The resort offers a complimentary shuttle to the namesake Placencia village south of the resort where you can explore new swimming locations, venture along the boardwalk, and purchase artisan crafts made locally. If you’re looking for something more specific, the resort also has plenty of tours that our concierge will gladly book for you.
