Where Is Carmelita Gardens?

It is in the Cayo District of Belize. The Cayo is one of the most scenic and lush regions in Belize. Surrounded by the verdant Maya Mountains, it features lush tracts of jungle, pine forests, rivers, waterfalls and charming rural villages.

On the banks of the pristine Belize River, Carmelita Gardens lets you enjoy the natural beauty that draws travelers to Belize. If you prefer scenery that is wild and untouched, you will appreciate this setting. Year-round sunshine and warm weather, a short rainy season and a small population make Belize the ideal setting for a relaxed lifestyle.

What Makes Carmelita Gardens Special

Living the simple life in Belize
The founders of Carmelita Gardens dreamed of building a community based on a traditional village but updated for the modern era. The community is self-sustaining with its own organic orchard and gardens. Small cottages overlook the river and create many opportunities for social interaction. Carmelita Gardens is entirely off the grid and founded on the principles of agrarian urbanism.

What Is Agrarian Urbanism?

Agrarian urbanism is a way of designing communities. These communities use the sun to generate electricity, rain catchments to get water and sustainable farming to produce food. They practice environmental stewardship and create strong social connections. Carmelita Gardens welcomes independent, ecologically minded people of all ages.

Similar communities are often reserved for people who are well off, but at Carmelita Gardens, life is affordable. Prices for land and lots are lower than similar homes in other parts of Belize. If you’re looking for a large house where you can replicate your high-consumption lifestyle, this isn’t the place for you. If you are looking for a simple life in a beautiful setting, Carmelita Gardens might be right for you.
