Gateway is a Spiritual Retreat enabling like-minded people who follow the timeless teachings of all Enlightened Masters to live a simple, quiet life in a loving and supportive community and in harmony with nature
We invite visitors to come and experience inner contemplation and recognition of the true nature of our being, to learn sustainable methods of farming and to live in harmony with nature. Maya history can be found on the Retreat with an extensive Maya village mound site which is awaiting further investigation.
We welcome suitable individuals and families to join in with the work of the Retreat, establishing long- or short-term accommodation and bringing with them their own gift and passions to help build a strong, vibrant and sustainable community.
Gateway Retreat is sponsored by The Belize Gateway Trust Foundation, a Belize registered Not for Profit Company.
