For many, the end of the 13th Baktun in the Maya Long Count Calendar, December 21, 2012, was a prediction of end times. Didn’t happen. To commemorate the event, the annual “End of the World Marathon” was organized in Belize, the heart of the Maya civilization.
This year’s marathon is scheduled for December 7 in picturesque Placencia, a town nestled up against the white powdery beaches and azure waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Over the past year my family spent a month in the enchanting nation of Belize – home to the nicest people, best food, and most amazing natural beauty I’ve ever experienced. Here are some pictures from our adventures there.
The driver took us a short way along this narrow peninsula that is Placencia, through the heavy, expertly carved, gigantic wooden gates and into this eye-popping lush tropical paradise. We had arrived at Chabil Mar.
The first thing I noticed was the verdant, tropical landscaping, flowers, shrubs, trees everywhere, and the ever present coconut palms lining the pristine, white sand beach. The next was the friendliness of the staff, including the driver that picked us up and took us there.

Come take a journey. Or rather Journey.
Belize, the small English-speaking Central American nation, may not have the cache of some of its Caribbean neighbors, but it does have plenty going for it — like, for example, fans such as Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain, who gushed about a recent trip to Belize on Twitter and Instagram
Recognizing that its member agents and brokers are not only selling to international buyers but representing listings in other countries, one of the nation’s biggest multiple listing services has streamlined the process for its members to enter, search for and market international properties.
Midwest Real Estate Data LLC, which serves nearly 40,000 members in the Greater Chicago area, worked with its MLS platform provider, dynaConnections Corp., to create custom international listing functions that are now live after being approved by MRED’s board of directors.
Even the British Newspaper The Telegraph agrees that Belize is the perfect country to retire. In an article entitled “Want to live in the Caribbean dream? You’d better believe in Belize,” which was published today, writer Saundra Satterlee asserts that Belize has so much to offer to expat retirees due to the country’s natural beauty and programs like QRP (Qualified Retired Program).
“Bordered by the Caribbean, Guatemala and Mexico with a population of 330,000, Belize is around 10 times the size of Luxembourg and is ranked by the Caribbean Tourism Organization as one of the region’s fastest growing tourist destinations. Property, too, is in the ascendancy,” she writes.
Jungle ruins and sea life await in tiny Belize
SAN IGNACIO, Belize — The same turquoise waters that lure tourists to Caribbean destinations slosh around Belize’s island chain. But tiny Belize has a major advantage in reeling in the holidaymakers — spectacular Mayan ruins tucked away in lush jungle. The nation is home to more prehistoric buildings than modern-day ones, according to its Institute of Archaeology.
That ancient appeal draws in backpackers eager for adventure as well as divers ready to gawk at its bustling reefs or plunge into its famed Blue Hole. Belize has all the ingredients for a surf and turf vacation — at least for those who don’t mind the odd giant cockroach or neon green frog that might invade their jungle dwellings.
There are no other fishing lodges that are not on the Caye’s in Belize and certainly not on the Peninsula. Now there can be the most exclusive high end experience for the single fisherman, the families who go on vacation and the groups to have a Fishing Lodge experience. A long day of fishing on the Caribbean Sea in the hot sun to come back to relax in luxury.
We have this preliminary drawing but you can design this as you wish. The developer researched what is needed in the area and then received ECP approval so basically, the investor just requires a permit to build, building could start in 2 weeks!
