The Vida Clara property is lush and pristine with many large palm trees, hardwoods, and other native species. The land is surrounded by large parcels of undeveloped land which provides privacy and tranquility. It has 1000 feet of creek front (20' wide at most points), big hardwood trees along the banks, small waterfalls, with a great swimming area.

Several valleys along the creek are perfect for planting with rich, fertile soil in most areas. We have cleared two of these creek side valleys, about 2 acres each. The valleys are surrounded by small mountains with several gentle sloping hillside. A natural spring flows from a mountain top and provides a pure water source.

We are leaving most of the property as undisturbed forest and jungle. A beautiful, established nature trail with large trees travels up a hillside behind the cottage. It follows alongside a deep ravine carved out over the centuries by the spring.

Property Location

The property is in Unitedville, Cayo District, which is halfway between (a 20 minute drive) San Ignacio and Belmopan. San Ignacio is the westernmost 'large town' in Belize, with a funky pioneering, adventurous vibe, while Belmopan is the preplanned capitol of Belize and has that government-planned feel and look to it. Unitedville is a very small village along the Western Highway, and our property is tucked away about 1 mile off the highway behind several small mountains. This gives us fairly close access to the main road while still affording excellent privacy and solitude.
