Best Kept Secret

By:

Hokeb Ha Cave           

When you’re visiting Hokeb Ha, the hike begins with lush jungle scenery to walk through to reach the mouth of the cave which is covered with long vines. Once inside, visitors swim through a shallow pool of fresh water before reaching a huge interior space. It is believed that the deeper sections of the cave were used by ancient Maya priests to conduct sacred ceremonies. The cave lies at the top of a hill and features a gorgeous waterfall. Once inside, the naturally blue waters that gave the creek its name and the contours of the interior give Hokeb Ha a unique beauty. Hokeb Ha is located approximately 20 minutes on foot from the village of Blue Creek in the Toledo District. As a natural phenomenon, Hokeb Ha Cave can be visited year-round, but the water levels inside the cave can rise following heavy rains. It is possible to explore the cave without relying on a guide, but hiring a guide in Blue Creek Village will make the trip much safer.

Itz'ana Resort & Residences

By:

We've noticed a trend and we wanted to share! Over the past year, we've seen more purchasers coming to Placencia than ever before and many of our buyers have chosen to purchase a second home at one special resort: Itz'ana Resort & Residences.

Itz’ana has a prime location right in the middle of our beautiful destination’s 16 mile Caribbean peninsula. It was recently featured in Forbes Travel Guide  and New York Times as one of the 13 most anticipated hotel openings in the world and one of 52 places to visit in 2017 respectively.    

Itz’ana is all about design! The 74 luxury waterfront residences and 20-room hotel are designed in collaboration with Boston based architect, Roberto de Oliveira Castro, and New York based interior designer Samuel Amoia. The resort is a luxury home base for exploring all of the adventures at nearby islands, rivers, jungle, caves, Mayan ruins, cacao farms and the world’s second largest barrier reef. And it’s loaded with amenities: The Rum Tasting Room, a private bar featuring rums from around the world; an owners-only lounge, three restaurants, reef-to-table pop-up dinners, two pools, a kids’ club, a private screening room, full service marina, yoga deck, adventure center, gym and spa and more….              

One of the most important reasons RE/MAX clients have chosen Itz'ana is that it offers the unique opportunity to purchase Belize real estate that is as financially secure as it is personally rewarding. As a part of Itz’ana Resort, your home can be rented hassle-free by Itz’ana’s expert management team, ensuring pristine maintenance while delivering strong passive income. The Residences are turn-key, ranging from 725 – 3,000 square feet with prices from $329,000 - $1,130,000. They are going to release their new penthouses to sell at the end of the summer and we can't wait!  The villas are 76% sold out and we invite you http://bit.ly/2sQjP3o to learn more.

Every weekend comes around and every weekend the same question comes up.  I’m sure this is a universal question and you would think that as we get older we would have it all figured out, but no, I certainly don’t.  My husband and I ask ourselves all the time what we are going to do – it’s the weekend.

Why Belize?

By:

Are you thinking about where to go for your next vacation? You’re making your check-list of what you’d love to see and that list includes white sandy beaches with blue waters, rich history and culture, budget friendly, safe, and not too touristy. Now, everywhere you’re probably thinking of speaks another language. And that may be a problem, considering you may or may not have failed that spanish exam in high school. Can it get much better than getting everything checked off that list AND has english as their official language? No, it probably can’t.
