“We’re far from ordinary and close to San Ignacio!”

Better in Belize is on the very far west side of Belize in the Cayo District. Given that Belize is so small, it is less than 3 hours from Better in Belize to the Belize City international airport (airport code BZE); and only 45 minutes away from our local airport in San Ignacio (airport code CYD) operated by Tropic Air.

Better in Belize on Vaca Lake is located in a tropical rainforest on vibrant Vaca Lake, part of the Macal River Valley, in the spectacular Cayo District of Belize, Central America. Our Belize community is located 10 ½ miles southeast of the village of Benque Viejo Del Carmen. The land is hilly as it is part of the foothills of the Maya Mountain range. The headwaters of the Macal River originate in the Maya Mountains and flow down past Better In Belize to the town of San Ignacio. In San Ignacio, the Macal River and Mopan River converge to form the Belize River that flows into Belize City and empties into the Caribbean. One of the many great features of our location is that there are no developments, towns or cities above Better in Belize, unlike other communities that are located downriver from our community. This represents a significant advantage and was a key reason why we chose this location for our community in Belize. When you’re tucked away in the pristine beauty of our Belize community, it’s difficult to imagine that you’re just 2 ½ hours away from Belize’s only international airport, Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City (airport code BZE). The Belize City international airport is serviced by major airlines including American Airlines; Avianca Aerovias (formed by the merger between Avianca and Taca airlines); Delta Airlines; Southwest AirlinesUnited Airlines; and US Airways. The two domestic airlines of Belize, Tropic Air and Maya Island Air service cities throughout Belize and offer flights from the Belize City airport.
