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.

End of Maya Calendar Celebration at TREES!

Dec. 21st 2012 is the end of the Maya Calendar! What better place to be for this occasion than in Belize, the Center of the Maya World?

If the world does not come to an end as some people predict, we will host an open house December 30th through January 2nd at our new biological research and educational facilities set in the beautiful jungles of the Maya Mountains of Belize. We are inviting one and all to come and experience our beautiful property and well-equipped facilities in tropical paradise.


Experience Belizean hospitality at its best with our new simple but comfortable shared cabanas or private 2-person tenting accommodations (all bedding and tents provided!). We will wow you with delicious Belizean cuisine made of all local and organic (wherever possible) ingredients. We offer both hot and cold showers, as well as flush toilets and jungle composting toilets!

Biologists will not be disappointed in our field station! Birders will be thrilled at the bird diversity on our 200 acres of mixed habitat types, including tropical lowland moist forest with lots of riparian habitat, cultivated and uncultivated orchard, and open grassland and forest edge. Herpers will not dismay as our many streams and rivers provide homes to turtles, frogs, lizards, and snakes who will most certainly grace you with their presence whether you want them to or not!

Being a biologist is not a requirement for having fun at our site! If you are into relaxing in tiny bathing suits, our property offers lovely relaxing river swimming holes and hammock stands, and if you prefer to spend your holidays feeling useful, our field station could only be made better by a handy person, a gardener, a landscaper, an artist, a graphic designer, a cook, an educator, and a musician! Just tell us in advance what you would like to get out of your stay with us, and we will provide!

On New Year's Day we will have a giant feast, followed by a local band and non-stoppable dance party, giant bonfire, and an open bar and all-you-can drink panti rippas.

You can get this all-inclusive package for just $65 CAD per person/per day, which includes accommodations and all food (3 meals a day). An additional $25 CAD fee will be charged for the New Year's eve party, which will get you all you can drink rum beverages, and a live local band and DJ! We recommend the full 4 days/4 nights to really get your fill of our place, but folks can stay for less time, depending on their heart's desires.

Our site is easily accessible by public transportation, which is fast, cheap, and a fun cultural experience. We can reduce meal costs if you will not be around for certain meals. We can also help you plan the rest of your vacation in Belize. Belize is an amazing little Caribbean country with so much nature and culture to offer!

Please RSVP soon (deadline October 15th) if you are seriously interested in this opportunity! Things book up really fast over Christmas holidays in Belize so we need to start planning this event as well as the rest of your trip accommodations as soon as possible. Because we will need to book and pay for so many things in advance, we ask for a 50% deposit on your stay here by October 31st 2012.
