If your family loves days of doing absolutely nothing, mixed with days of high adventure and lots of activities, then a vacation to San Ignacio in Belize might be your best bet. Tucked away in the rainforest along the western region of Belize, San Ignacio is found on the banks of the Macal River. The river is the hub of kid-friendly activities like canoeing and tubing, and other options here include hiking Mayan ruins, horseback riding, butterfly farms and so much more. This area is less touristy than other parts of Belize, so families enjoy a more culturally authentic experience when staying here. Kid-friendly lodging near San Ignacio ranges from glamping facilities to luxury resorts.

–Jones Family Trip

"My trip was extraordinary. Linda was incredible to work with and I could not have been more pleased. Thankful!"

–Goodrich Family Trip

"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"

–Beck Family Trip
