Ecorana employs biologists who are well-trained in tropical ecology, herpetology, and ornithology, and as such, studies in tropical biology are the primary focus of our educational holidays. 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.

New cabins!

Here is Part 2 of the new cabins built on the property. These two cabins are Tobar cabins, these guys were excellent! The cabins are beautiful, really well made, they do not curb corners to save a buck and they were installed properly and swiftly. We are very pleased with Erix's work on these ones.

The cabins have two rooms each and a large 6 foot wide deck with a great view of the jungle. They are excellent to hang out on at the end of the day and have a nice cold beer while looking into the thick jungle.

Mat being silly on the deck!

We will use these cabins mainly as dorms for students, but thy will be used as individual rooms for profs and researchers as well as ecotourists that want to experience an ecology field station. We are now in the process of debating what final cabins will be built on the project grounds for now. Either 2 small individual cabins or another one of the large two-room cabins!

The new Cahune jungle compostable toilets!

Anyhow, part 3, the caretaker and intern house will be the next building posting!

You will have to come and see these cabins for yourselves!!!
