Pioneers in sustainability, Muy’Ono Resorts reflects its values on Belize Retreats. This is evident when scouting one of its more popular retreat venues, Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge. Tucked in the jungles a half-hour drive from San Ignacio Town, the jungle lodge serves as an ideal location for self-healing. You’ll be cocooned within broadleaf trees and lush greenery, the Macal River gently flowing at the edge of the property awaiting exploration.

Your journey to wellness will go beyond the insightful yoga classes and workshops. Here, you’ll take a backseat to wildlife and nature simply existing as it should: freely.

Feel free to go bird watching at any time of day, or kayak down the famous Macal River. Adventure awaits just beyond the property as well, with the famous Xunantunich Maya site a short drive away and ancient Maya caves ready for cave tubing. 

An Oasis of Serenity 

It’s no secret Belize is considered to have the best of both worlds with one foot in Central America and another in the Caribbean. The latter paints a backdrop of endless sandy beaches and crystalline blue waters belonging to the second-largest barrier reef. To get a closer look while on your wellness journey, Belize Retreats offers the notable Thatch Caye Resort as one of its venues. The all-inclusive private island resort knows a thing or two about tranquil paradises, making it the perfect locale for a self-care vacation.

As one of the only resorts in Belize with overwater bungalows, Thatch Caye guarantees a unique experience unlike other resorts of its caliber. Belize’s Barrier Reef is mere steps away from your yoga mat, a fact that is sure to soothe the mind and soul even further. At Thatch Caye, you’ll come for the seclusion and serenity and stay for the natural wonders at your disposal. 

Harmony for all 

With options like these, it’s difficult to shirk away one venue for the other. Thankfully, you don’t need to since Belize Retreats offer combo packages for insatiable travelers. You can indulge in both the dense jungles of Belize as well as the tranquil sanctums of island life. If this sounds like your sort of wellness itinerary, the next yoga retreat is set for April 30 and lasts 8 days and 7 nights. Split your dreamy week between Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge and Thatch Caye, creating a vibrant wellness trip complete with vegan-friendly meals and plenty of adventures.
