Hi, my name is Eden and I grew up in Belize here on the sanctuary property with my parents and siblings. I studied photography and art in school and feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Even though I've travelled in Europe, India, Nepal, Japan, Canada, the U.S.A and Central America...I'm always still exploring this tiny country of Belize - usually with my camera in tow! When guests stay here, I hope to make them feel as welcome as old friends.
