A Self-Sufficient, Off-Grid Community In The Belize´s Cayo District

Agrarian Urbanism is the principle upon which this development, Carmelita Gardens, was created. For years a few individuals have lived off-the-grid in remote locations, but now it is a mainstream reality. The ability of individuals to independently generate electricity from the sun and produce a sustainable amount of food from a garden is finally here.

Inspired by the increasing demand for energy independence, food security and community stability, Carmelita Gardens is designed to combine new technologies, traditional gardening and classical design into a cohesive community of independent homes. This new “Artisan Agrarianism” represents a blend of resilient living, self-sustainability and a community atmosphere. Carmelita Gardens is a place where residents can be “independent together”.

Even though the community is off-grid, residents will still enjoy first-class infrastructure and amenities. Each home will be equipped with state-of-the-art solar technology that supports air conditioning, fans, washers, dryers, and refrigerators. As far as the Internet, Belize telecom companies provide USBs that you can just pop into your computer for Internet access.

A Nature-Lover´s Paradise With Plenty of Activities And Easy Access To The Major Town

Carmelita Gardens is surrounded by tropical rainforests, the majestic Maya Mountains and the Belize River Valley. Simply a nature-lover´s paradise, an undeveloped and still relatively undiscovered frontier of wide-open spaces crisscrossed by rivers for swimming and kayaking, rain forest for exploring and hiking, and Mayan ruins for climbing. Residents will also have access to communal gardens and orchards that they can work as much or as little as they like.

At Carmelita, you get to enjoy the country life all while enjoying quick, easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, bars, hardware stores, and any other types of services as you are only 10 minutes away from San Ignacio, which is the biggest town in Cayo.

Lots in Carmelita range in size from 1/8 to ½ acre and prices start at US$28,000 and go up to US$65,000. The developer also offers financing for lot purchases.

Carmelita also offers a turn-key investment option called the River Club, which will be a riverfront eco-resort consisting of 8 one-bedroom, one bath cottages, 4 one-bedroom, one bath suites and 10 studio apartments. These units work for either full or part-time living or as a rental investment. The prices start at US$65,000 for courtyard studios and go up to US$98,350 for the riverfront cottages. All of the units include appliances, and will be connected to community solar, water, and wastewater systems.
