However, our team’s diverse interests and expertise allow us to plan all types of holidays ranging from wildlife ecotours to yoga retreats to West African drumming courses to ecological field technique courses. Wherever your interests lie, you can be guaranteed that Ecorana will be right there with you.Ecorana maintains values of environmental and cultural conservation and stewardship, hands-on education, and inclusive learning, and seeks to instill those values in all visitors to Belize. We work with many field stations and educational centers, scientists, educators, tour companies, tour guides, eco-lodges, and parks, both on the mainland and on the islands of Belize, to make sure you go exactly where you want to go and see exactly what you want to see and more!

One of our main partners is the Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society (T.R.E.E.S) and their field station in Belize. The objectives of this environmental education center are to host various cultural and environmental based student courses, workshops and event hosting in the heart of the beautiful Maya Mountains of Belize. We plan on providing our services to international students as well as providing opportunities for Belizean students.

Intro to the place - Phase 1

I figured it was now time to introduced to Ecorana station to all of you as we are slowly getting set to be a station! We now have are house all set-up, our vehicles up and running (with the regular visit to the mecanicos) and are now working on up-grading the restaurant- student lounge area!

In the pictures posted here we can see the improved house with its vibrant tropical colours and the vehicles. Living up in the rain forest we both had to equip ourselves with the latest in new top vehicles, at least belize style, an 84 and a 94 toyota, they are doing the job just right for us at the moment!

Bonne Année, Happy New Year!

We are sorry again for the little delay in Blogging! We have had our families over for Christmas time and new years! After a little adjustment to the jungle, rain, bugs, and an nontraditional Christmas feeling, our families have survived and really enjoyed the Holidays in the sun!

We hope everyone had a very merry Christmas with friends and family. As 2011 appears to have been a year of transition for many of us, we wish you all a very merry 2012! We wish you all the best of luck and best of wishes to all!

as we say in french Bonne année grand nez!
