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. This is a place to experience simple living in harmony with nature. This project aims to provide an opportunity for like-minded people to grow spiritually in a loving and supportive environment. The Belize Gateway Trust Foundation welcomes suitable individuals and or families to join in with the work of the Retreat, in long or short-term accommodation, bringing with them their own gift and passions to help build a strong, vibrant and sustainable community.

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.
