About us

Carmelita Gardens is a Sustainable Riverfront Village in the tropical Cayo District of Belize, the “Breadbasket of the Caribbean”.

Founded in 2010 on 98-acres of rich farmland we are growing steadily and organically in the beautiful and verdant Belize River Valley.

Carmelita Gardens Vision

“Independent Together” is the motto adopted by Carmelita Gardens to describe the spirit of the individual and the community.

With ample sunshine, rainwater, fertile soil, and river front we are blessed with the pure and essential natural resources needed to build a self-sufficient community in the Heartland of Belize.

In Carmelita Gardens our homes are off-grid, our residents are independent individuals, and together we are a safe, peaceful, and comfortable community.
