Sep 1, 2023 | Environmental, People, Videos

Belize, a tiny slip of land nestled between Guatemala and Mexico, is known for its stunning Caribbean shores, colorful coral reefs, and impressive biodiversity. But beyond the postcard-perfect picture lies a world of fascinating stories, vibrant culture, and astounding natural beauty that few people know about. That’s where the documentary comes in: taking you on a journey of discovery through the real Belize that lies beyond the tourist hot spots.
As the film unfolds, you’ll meet a cast of unforgettable characters who call Belize home. First, there’s Cash, a ranger by trade but an islander at heart, who welcomes you to the southernmost tip of Belize with his warm smile and infectious energy. Then, you’ll venture into the San Ignacio region, where everything is a call to adventure, and Isabelle, who landed here with her backpack and never left, will show you the ropes.
But the real highlight of the film is Meliot, a passionate conservationist whose love for the Sibun River has led him on a lifelong journey of exploration and preservation. Every month, Meliot takes to his boat and travels up the river to make sure that it’s not in any danger, a journey that is as exhilarating as it is challenging.
Through these and other stories, you’ll discover the real Belize, a place where beauty and danger, adventure and tradition, wildness and civilization coexist in a fragile balance. And you’ll come away with a newfound appreciation for this stunning country, and a desire to explore it for yourself.
So if you’re ready for an adventure like no other, join us on a journey to Belize. Watch the documentary now and discover a world of wonder, right on your doorstep.
