Cave tubing, a favorite family vacation tour in Belize

Vacations are Kid’s Play at Belize’s Cahal Pech Village Resort

If you’d like your children to have a better world view than their contemporaries, taking them overseas can shape the thinking of even small youngsters once they’re exposed to diverse cultures. It helps if your trip is affordable and you pick a nation in close proximity--traveling with squirmy, restless kids is no fun for anyone!

What destination should you choose? Belize. You won’t find a more beautiful Central American nation that’s kid-friendly, adult-friendly and wallet-friendly, too! Imagine just one location where everyone can sun, dive, explore archaeological sites and stroll nearby markets. You’ll find a family paradise in the Cayo District, home to Cahal Pech Village Resort. What makes Cahal Pech idyllic? For the following great reasons:

Reason #1: Cahal Pech is your headquarters for family tours because our team knows what families enjoy (and what they don’t), so if your put your family into the skilled hands of our trip planners, expect to be amazed. Browse San Ignacio Market for treasures, take the kids cave tubing on a sleepy river, zip line Belize jungles, explore rain forests and Mayan ruins. Deciding which to choose has been known to leave parents breathless!

Reason #2: You don’t have to leave Cahal Pech unless you want to, because there’s so much to do on premises. Our expansive suites are designed for families, so everyone can spread out and claim personal time and space. Our wide array of kid-friendly games and activities, three pools and gourmet restaurant will keep everyone busy from dawn to dusk. Since we’re literally perched above the Belize River Valley on a Maya Hill, there’s even Mayan ruin in close proximity if you'd prefer not to travel to other heritage sites.

Reason #3: It’s good to be a kid at Cahal Pech—especially if you’re under the age of 10! Beginning December 1st, children enjoy complimentary breakfasts if they’ve yet to celebrate that 10th birthday. Cahal Pech already allows kids under this age to stay free in parent’s rooms. Given this bounty of money-saving perks, parents staying at Cahal Pech joke that they use the money they would have paid for kid accommodations on trained babysitters whose services are arranged by staff!

Reason #4: It’s not just fun to stay at Cahal Pech, but it’s safe, too. Moms and dads worry about the safety of kids more than past generations, so knowing that your entire family is safely tucked into the hills of San Ignacio overlooking the bustling downtown area, you’ll be extra relaxed. Besides, being in that lofty environment means that after the kids are asleep, you two can gaze out at the gorgeous valley below from the comfort of your cuddly hammock. Why does this resort prioritize families? Because it’s a family-owned business run by owners who understand what it takes to properly host families.

Reason #5: You get have a grown-up vacation while you’re here, too, Mom and Dad. If you take advantage of resort-recommended babysitting services, go out on the town at night or make arrangements for a day tour that the two of you crave but it’s either inappropriate for the kids or just no fun for them. Whether your idea of fun is zip lining, plunging into the ATM cave to see Mayan treasures and skeletal remains or visiting the expansive and world-famous Tikal ruins in nearby Guatemala, escape knowing the kids are safe and having just as much fun.

Reason #6: Myriad domestic airlines flying into Belize began lowering rates after Southwest Airlines added this route, so take advantage of this perk. If you decide to rent a car after landing, leave those car seats at home because Cahal Pech keeps them on site for parents favoring road trips. There’s so much more to see and do—including every child’s favorite stop at the San Ignacio Resort where your kids’ eyes will light up during an Iguana Hatchery Tour.
