In the article titled ” 8 Green Ways to Experience Belize” they write:
Beyond the thatched cottages, pools, and outdoor restaurants, Chaa Creek resort prides itself on being a nature preserve. From visiting their butterfly farm to the night walk through the rainforest led by naturalist guides, they offer a multitude of ways to get to know the land right on their 365 acre property.
Possibly the best part is their sweeping organic farm, which provides most of the vegetables and herbs for their restaurants, along with food for the animals who live there. Owner Mick Fleming is enthralled with organic farming, relying mostly on traditional Maya methods to grow food and sustain the ecosystem.
Ride on horseback out to the farm, where you’ll smell the lemongrass used in teas as you watch the worms go to town in their worm bins, providing nutrients for acres of plants.
Other green ways to experience Belize included the famous ATM Cave, Ancient Maya Temples of Xunantunich, Cyrila’s Chocolate, Lamanai Outpost, Maya Homestay, Splash Dive Center, and of course Belize Jungle Tours.
