Greetings from warm and tropical Belize!


As dire weather warnings plague Europe, California, the Northeastern United States and parts of Canada today, we're enjoying a mostly sunny day of 85 degrees Fahrenheit/ 30 degrees Celsius. Kinda makes you think of pulling up stakes, doesn't it? If you're thinking about moving to Belize, we can assist you by providing insider info and even help you plan your trip to Belize (including a special tour of Better in Belize EcoVillage). Interested? Email us for more info.

We are a Green Community
Hip, hip, hooray!! We're happy to be feelin' blue!

On December 29, 2017, Belize’s House of Representatives passed the Petroleum Operations (Maritime Zone Moratorium) Act 2017. This act established an indefinite moratorium on the exploration for, and exploitation and extraction of petroleum within the 200-mile long Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System (BBRRS).

We're elated that so many creatures of infinite beauty and grace can now swim under the protection of this act.

The lagoons, estuaries, mangrove forests, coral reefs, sand cays, and offshore atolls in the BBRRS are home to an incredible array of marine life including gentle manatees, playful dolphins, graceful sea turtles, stoplight parrot fish, donkey dung cucumbers (truly!), goose barnacles, shamefaced crabs, upside-down jellyfish, giant decorator crabs, Christmas tree worms, ocean surgeon fish, seahorses, porgies, and puffers!
 
Did you know that you can have breakfast at our green community in the morning and be snorkeling in a blue lagoon in the afternoon? Ask us about the convenient Tropic Air flights from San Ignacio to San Pedro.
