Caves tell the history of Belize, having been an intricate part of the Maya religion and culture. The Maya used caves as ceremonial sites and evidence of these activities can be found inside these caves. Relics, principally in the form of shards of pottery, are very common.
We were delighted to see Belize pop up on two of our favourite television shows – on the animated antics of American Dad, and then on the season finale of “Better Call Saul”.
We were happy to see Belize picked as the destination for the WCS’s 120th anniversary’s “120 Ways to Be Wild in NY” photo competition. Described as a “trip of a lifetime”, the grand prize five-day excursion for two to Belize can be won by visiting the competition website (www.nyiswild.com), signing up, and taking and posting 10 selfies that celebrate New York City’s wild side.
Chaa Creek continues to celebrate this age old activity with the multinational cadre of children visiting our 365 acre nature reserve as spring comes to the tropics and announces the nesting time for toucans and parrots within a riotous pallet of brightly coloured trees.
On March 27, 2015 article’s title, Seven Perfect Days in Belize immediately caught our eye, as Costas Christ of National Geographic Traveler features Chaa Creek on article seven perfect days in Belize.
Few people understand the complexity of the Mayas organic farming techniques. The indigenous Maya have survived for over 2000 years on subsistence farming for home use, barter, and sale as the backbone of their existence. They have used resources supplied by nature to nourish the soil and protect their crops from insect devastation. Today Belize continues to use traditional Maya farming methods.
