Escape To Belize: A Safe And Strategic Caribbean Haven

A Safe Haven In This Difficult Time

“If the world has any ends, British Honduras [Belize] would certainly be one of them. It is not on the way from anywhere to anywhere else. It has no strategic value. It is all but uninhabited.” –Aldous Huxley, Beyond The Mexique Bay

Huxley’s “Beyond The Mexique Bay” was published in 1934—a travelogue of his journey through the Caribbean, Guatemala, and Mexico.

In many ways, his picture of Belize holds true today.

And, with a population of just 330,000, it’s relatively “uninhabited.”

But we did. We filled up all the available spots, and those adventurers that came with us into the heart of the Cayo—guided by the experts who are living and teaching this way of life—had the weekend of a lifetime…

The feedback was so positive, we’ve decided to run another event this November. This will be our first stand-alone Self-Sufficiency Seminar…and, again, we’ll be based in Cayo, Belize.

I understand this is a specialized event—one that won’t appeal to everyone. But, if you’re at all intrigued by the idea, here are a few things you should now about the self-sufficient life…

First, you don’t need a farming background. Whether you live in the city or country… whether you keep a garden or just some potted plants on your balcony… this is open to everyone. All you need is Continue reading
