Do You Want To Live Off the Grid In Belize, This is How You Can

Belize is a land flush with natural beauty and anyone who visits her can attest to the large swaths of unspoiled country that abounds. It is increasingly common for visitors to decide to set up living in this country after their first experience, either choosing to expatriate or simply make Belize their retirement homeland. With that trend, a handful of people have recognized that others would love to live in this tropical paradise and they join the country’s booming real estate industry.

If you love the idea of living in a tropical paradise that is away from the rat race, yet close to modern conveniences, Carmelita Gardens in the Cayo District of Belize should be your first stop. This is a community that was founded to satisfy the need to have energy independence and food security within a peaceful and stable setting. This is a place where people are free to blend off-grid technologies and traditional approaches to gardening amid classically designed residences, which solidifies the idea of an “Independent Together” neighborhood. Every aspect of Carmelita Gardens’ development was made with resiliency and self-sustainability as a number one priority, allowing each and every resident to enjoy a wonderful state of mutual independence.


Whether you fashion yourself to be an artisan or skilled with a green thumb, you will find top-tier amenities and resources in this village. Every home uses state-of-the-art solar power, pressurized clean rainwater systems, and has high-speed internet so residents and vacationers can stay connected and work remotely.

No location is complete without mentioning its surroundings; Carmelita Gardens’ surroundings are rainforest, the Maya Mountains, and the Belize River Valley. Basically, nature-lovers will be beside themselves with things to do in this relatively undiscovered area. Furthermore, this new traditional village is blessed with a mile of Belize River frontage, perfect for swimming and kayaking, patches of rainforest for recreation and wildlife habitat, and even a wooded park with Maya Mounds to explore and get in some cardio. Residents are also free to contribute as little or as much to the community gardens and orchards as they wish.

Carmelita Gardens is where people enjoy comfortable off-grid country-living while being only seven miles from San Ignacio, Cayo’s biggest town, and Spanish Lookout, a modern Mennonite community. If this sounds like the sort of place for you or your business interests, now is a perfect time to come and inspect it. The Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport just reopened, so you can get ahead of the crowd and book a tour and stay at Carmelita Gardens.
