About Us

The Gateway Retreat is sponsored by The Belize Gateway Trust Foundation, a Belize registered Not for Profit company dedicated to establishing and maintaining a Spiritual Retreat in Belize to develop and promote personal spiritual growth, renewable energy resources, sustainable agriculture and a simple lifestyle in harmony with Nature.

Visitors are invited to experience a much slower pace of life in which they can enjoy the wide and varied flora and fauna, learn to manage renewable water and electricity resources and become more self sufficient in food production. There is also the opportunity for those seeking spiritual growth to practice meditation and follow the teachings of the Masters, Saints or Enlightened Ones of all religions.
