At Itz’ana we are dedicated to providing exceptional experiences that impact the lives of our guests, our staff, and our community. Through various initiatives, such as our eco-friendly commitment and our love and support for locally grown, we are eternally dedicated to leading as stewards of change.
For the past months, Itz’ana has partnered with Market on the Go Belize, a local organization whose mission is to connect the country of Belize with local artisans and their products. We are proud to say that Belize is home to a vast selection of artists and entrepreneurs, who express their cultures and creativity through art. At Itz’ana, we consider it of the utmost importance to show support for local artisans, and in turn, our communities. Driven by a shared mission to support our Belizean artisans, Itz’ana Resort and Market on the Go bring the Itz’ana Artisan Market to the Placencia Peninsula.
Taking place on the first Sunday of every month, the Itz’ana Artisan Market is open to the public and completely free for attendees and vendors alike. Featuring an impressive collection of local products, this Artisan Market is a spectacular opportunity to learn about local brands, engage with Belizean artists, and most importantly, shop local. From home furniture and decor made from upcycled materials to haircare made from locally-sourced seaweed, the Artisan Market brings together the very best of Belizean products.
Spend your day exploring, shopping, and indulging in our stunning beachfront settings.
We invite you to join us in support of our Belizean communities by shopping locally. Linger a little longer, and make Itz’ana your home for the weekend, where our dedication to our community and environment is evident in all that we do.
Reverence for our surroundings has been embedded in the design and construction of every aspect of our resort. While our team continuously explores new ways to limit our environmental impact and implement eco-friendly solutions, we also continue to reach out to our communities with initiatives and programs, like our monthly community beach cleanup. Additionally, our commitment to local is embodied in our signature restaurant, Limilia, through fisherman-inspired cuisine and locally-sourced produce. Our resort works closely with local farmers and fishermen to source the very best in fresh, seasonal ingredients. At Itz’ana, we are proud to call Belize home, and we are deeply committed to making a difference in our communities and our environment.
We invite you to explore incredible Belizean products and support local artisans at our next Itz’ana Artisan Market. Find us on the beachfront on the first Sunday of each month, and visit our Monthly Calendar for more about events at Itz’ana Resort & Residences.
