Every new homeowner at Itz'ana celebrates their membership with a glass of Caribbean rum and a gift of pure Belizean chocolate. The cacao farms of Southern Belize are legendary in the global gourmet community. These small Mayan farms are sought after by the best chocolatiers in the world - and we've found the best of the best for our guests.
A bar of Dick Taylor chocolate is the highlight of every owner's gift basket. And for good reason. From bean to batch, you won't be able to find a more well-designed treat.
The team at Dick Taylor perfectly encapsulates the values of Itz'ana. A hands-on approach, meticulous attention to detail, and pride in craftsmanship are the hallmarks of their product.
The founders began their journey as boatbuilders and then took their ethos of handcrafted, sustainably-sourced excellence into the world of cacao. And we are delighted that they chose to highlight Belize with one of their signature bars. As founder Adam Dick says, "If we don't start with great ingredients, we'll never make a great chocolate bar."
