Our Story & Vision

After traveling through Mexico and Guatemala in 1979, I stumbled into Belize as a cross roads to get from point A to B. I immediately noticed a unique quality that made this little country somehow different and special. My intuition told me that I’d be back!

Return I did after six years – I came with a sailboat and little more than a dream to do something that somehow mattered. I started taking folks out for sailing trips to help support my romance with a wooden flat-bottomed boat called Juanita. For the next five years my little charter business called Timeless Tours was both a winter retreat from the cold of New England and a chance to discover the many wonders of Belize.

You’ve found it! Each day begins a new adventure, with locally guided tours to Mayan villages, ancient ruins,waterfalls, and caves. Activities available on the grounds include birding, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming,medicinal plant walks, off the grid yoga/massage or simply relaxing in a hammock. We are eight miles from the Caribbean – close enough to enjoy snorkeling, diving, fishing, or sailing on a day trip.
