Size up the Advantages of Buying Property in our Belize EcoVillage! 
 
Revealed!! Get wise to the benefits of buying property at our Belize eco-village versus purchasing raw land somewhere else........
  • No monthly electricity or utility bills. At Better in Belize, we are completely off-grid – so there are no connected utilities as you would find on the grid (e.g. electric companies). Water is by rainwater catchment (very common throughout Belize); no sewers – individual septic systems are in use; electricity is through solar power. Lots of benefits, not the least of which is no monthly electricity or utility bills. 
  • Not being tied to the grid has its advantages. If anything were to happen to the grid, we’re clear sailing at Better in Belize. We don’t ascribe to a “doomsday” mentality at all, but you never know in this wonky world of ours!
  • Keep connected! We have high speed/WiFi Internet services at Better in Belize, not always easy to set up if you are buying raw land somewhere and building. 
  • Access to solar experts. With a raw land purchase, you may have to set up your own solar unless the land would be located close enough to town utilities to connect accordingly. Our solar experts are tried and true and know the lay of our land (and solar exposure!) well.

  • Living in a community offers various advantages. You’re not as isolated from neighbors; have a sense of community and security; social interaction on site if you want it; shared community events and potlucks, etc.
  • Potential rental revenue. Better in Belize EcoVillage offers the potential for vacation rental revenue. Our dramatic terrain in the foothills of the Maya Mountains showcases a stunning backdrop for visitors.
  • Cool tours and attractions on site and nearby. The jungle pontoon waterfalls tours in our backyard is one of the best tours offered in all of Belize – great TripAdvisor reviews! Other cool tours and attractions within striking distance of our gates include jungle horseback riding, Mayan cave tours, and an international sculpture park. A whole network of underground caves and 4 waterfalls dot the 5-mile lake that straddles Better in Belize – an incredibly vibrant area for nature enthusiasts, hikers, birders, spelunkers, amateur archeologists.... not to mention it is an astronomer’s dream destination with some of the best star-gazing in the world.
  • Access to local builders. The builders at Better in Belize know the lay of the land, are locally based, and are well-versed in building issues including procuring building permits, etc.
  • On-site property management. There are on-site property management options – not always easy to arrange/nail down for stand-alone properties.

Limpkin in Belize
This limpkin is taking time out for a wing stretch between snacking on apple snails, its very favourite food. While nondescript in markings, the limpkin is an interesting bird, so named for the slight lameness and limp in its gait. Its screeching and unsettling cry has been co-opted by Hollywood producers to replicate jungle sounds in movies from Tarzan to Jurassic Park.

Did you know that there are over 590 recorded species of birds in Belize? September is a great time to go birdwatching in Belize. Book a visit to our Belize eco-village this September and cash in on hugely discounted rental rates at The Toucan House Eco-Lodge or Tree Tops Guest House.
