After years of research and consideration, Cecilia and Robert are focused on moving to Belize. They think this could be a place where they want to live, at least part-time. But what really attracted them to Belize, over all the other countries they considered, was finances. “We aren’t wealthy people, but we’ve managed what we have,” says Robert. “We see this new adventure as a next step in that process.”

I just returned from an amazing educational adventure in Belize. It was a cross between “Survivor” and National Geographic. I went as a part of my Master’s in Conservation program that combines summer field experiences with collaborative projects. I climbed Maya temples, explored caves, snorkeled the coral reef, hiked through rainforests, chased howler monkeys and much more. I also attended lectures from conservationists, did daily inquiry projects and engaged with local communities.

To A Rainforest from the Reef

It would be a privilege to visit another land that has taken the time to put the ecosystem before the financial gain of tourism. I have visited home a few times since I moved up north and Key West is not like it was 21 years ago when I was fifteen years old. Many corporations and chain restaurants moved in slowly and changed the vibe of the island and along with it they have tampered with the nature of the island.

Protecting Belize From Reef To Rainforest

I want to be an eco kid. I want to help wipe Belize’s tears away. I want to learn more about why rainforests are important. I want to learn how our reef protects Belize and how we can protect our reef. By learning more, I can play my part as a ten year old child to help keep Belize clean, environmentally healthy and safe. I can teach other young people and adults different ways to protect Belize and wipe away her tears. As an eco kid I can learn how to protect Belize for many generations to come, and keep Belize beautiful from reef to rainforest.

I can bring my ipad, right?

“Responsible tourism”, I think, “not anything I’ve ever done”. And I think it’s time. I think it’s time I see what it means to co-exist with the plants, the little green tree frogs, and the butterflies. To not just look at nature from afar or on the tv, but to be a part of it. And that’s what responsible tourism is – coexisting. Not plowing through or tearing down, but fitting in. Fitting in with nature. Afterall, that’s what we all want, what we all need…to fit in.

We Would Be Thrilled to Honeymoon in Belize

Our adventure began almost four years ago now when we went on our first date. He disguised it as a Christmas present, “in case it didn’t go well.” We have been dating ever since, and are getting an apartment together next month. This past June, he completely surprised me while on a trip to Philadelphia, PA when he pulled out the engagement ring he had been hiding in his room at home for about a month. We are currently planning a fall wedding, October 8, 2011.

I wonder what it is like to wake up and know your alarm clock is a Howler Monkey.

I wonder what it is like to wake up and know your alarm clock is a Howler Monkey. What is it like to be in a place where the morning mist rises as you strain your ears to hear the ancient Mayans whisper their secrets of the past and knowledge of the future? I wonder what it is like to be in a place where the sky scrapers were built to encourage spiritual enlightenment and not the growth of big business.

A Belize Vacation has captured my eco-minded attention!

A Vacation to Belize’s Chaa Creek has captured my eco-minded attention! I have been a Registered Nurse for 15 years. I feel confident in helping people maintain and improve their health. My mission has been focused on the people living in this world. Unfortunately, I was oblivious to the world that people were living in.
About five years ago, I had my eyes and spirit awakened. I realized that I needed to make changes in my …

By Future Perfect Travel
Red-eyed tree frogs, as their name states, have bold red eyes with vertically narrowed noses, a vibrant green body with yellow and blue striped sides, and orange toes.There is a great deal of regional variation in flank and thigh coloration. Although it has been suggested that the frog’s bright colors function as sexual signals,  neither of these hypotheses have been confirmed. Males range from 2 to 2 1/2 inches, while female range from …

Get Back to Nature

The Maya believed that every object contained a life force that toucans were sacred spirits, messengers between the gods and man. Inspired by this toucan’s passing in the early evening’s golden light, the Maya craftman might have begun carving its image into a limestone frieze on a ceremonial temple. As for myself, I retain just enough life force after a long day of exploring the rainforest to toast the toucan with another rum and fresh papaya, one of the bird’s favorite fruits.

The Lodge at Chaa Creek – located in a rainforest in W Belize, close to the Guatemalan border – is one of the best hotel experiences we have had and we were sorry to leave after our three night stay. The current property is the evolution of a 20 year + project of its British-American owners – originally a rooming house for backpackers, it has morphed into a luxurious and environmentally sensitive complex, with a large pool, beautiful rooms and …

forests provide a refuge for tapirs (the national animal of Belize), pumas and numerous tropical birds
(like the keel billed toucan), while the mountainous regions ensure a …
