I started reading up on it and realised what a healthy trend it is,” she said.

While Belize is known as a diver’s paradise (and we’ll get to that later) more and more people are discovering the magic of inland Belize and the lush Cayo District. And why not? Where else can you go, in just a couple hours driving, from seacoast, through broad savannah and rolling green pastures to increasingly deeper bush turning to jungle? Along the way you’ll notice a change from the lilt of coastal Creole to more Spanish speakers. You can even take a hand cranked ferry across the river to Spanish Lookout and hear German spoken in the large Mennonite farming community there.

We couldn’t agree more. Chaa Creek’s own Eco-Kids annual educational summer camp has proven that, given the opportunity, Belize’s young people leap at opportunities, rise to challenges and excel at a wide variety of disciplines.
