Mayan archaeological sites


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I was born in Saint-Eustache, Canada and grew up in different places throughout the province. My taste for discoveries and adventures brought me traveling in many places around the globe, for work and for leisure, from Portugal to Spain, France to Germany, Kenya to United Arab Emirates and many others. I like being active and doing different sports and activities!

Why the Owner Chose Cayo, Belize:
From all the countries I have visited, definitely Belize is one of my favorite for it's diversity and beautiful nature. I visited the country for the first time in 2012 and in my mind it was just a question of time before I own something there...This little country has it all, Caribbeans for snorkeling, diving, fishing and beaches. Jungle for Eco tourism, Mayan archaeological sites, hiking, cave tubing, bird watching and so on...nice weather, friendly people, English speaking country, I could go on and on. It is finally in 2013 that two friends and myself became partners, established our company Belize Adventure Inc. and decided to own a piece of land in the Better in Belize Eco-community to build our own ecological and sustainable development.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This unit, among with the others on our piece of land, has been carefully thought and designed to be able to feel the jungle surrounding us. Nice Large and comfortable outdoor living space, interior ceilings and floors all made of Mahogany. The unit is near the wide organic gardens and the community center where you can feel the vibe of being with other villagers and vacationers with different activities going on. Just down the village you have access to the majestic Macal river and the waterfalls. All our units are built to meet high ecological standards. Utilities are provided from solar energy, water catchment system and bio-digestive septic tank for nature preservation.
