If you’re thinking of throwing your hat into the ring (or, at least, a horseshoe or two at our community horseshoe pit where lots of laughter already hangs in the ether) and buy at Better in Belize, these words are for you.
We’re a small – but growing – community of diversified people who share a common passion. Conserve and preserve Mother Earth today for tomorrow and the generations that follow. Our kids. Your kids. And grand kids still to come.
Live in a place of great promise and beauty with amazing and interesting neighbours – doctors, carpenters, architects, artists, musicians – whose talents and interests will enhance your life and the lives of your family and friends. Just as you, your friends and family will enhance our lives and the lives of our family and friends.
We have to toot our own horn here, so here goes. Toot! Toot! We are one cool group of people – Canadians, Americans and Europeans, so far – but we welcome singles, couples and families from anywhere and everywhere. We’ve all got something to learn and stuff to teach. We hope you’ll join us at Better in Belize for a lifetime of rich and wonderful experiences.
