EcoTourism Belize is connecting nature, wildlife and communities for a more sustainable world.
Our primary objective is to be an exemplary model for sustainable tourism and development in the Toledo district by creating transformative experiences with nature and local communities. These experiences have been carefully designed to provide an authentic experience through local guidance, while minimizing our impact on the natural environment and reinvesting in conservation.
EcoTourism Belize provides an opportunity for local and international guests to come and experience our one of a kind tours in the Golden Stream Corridor Preserve – where they get to see wildlife in the pristine forests, surrounded by breathtaking views of natural waters. EcoTourism Belize offers rare opportunities of interacting with Maya healers, indulging in chocolate, and snorkeling at the southern tip of the world’s largest living Barrier Reef System.
By booking a tour or a stay with us, you are directly supporting conservation in southern Belize!
