Welcome to our slice of paradise.
Honey Camp Ranch is located on Honey Camp Lagoon in the Orange Walk District of the jewel of Belize. Only 9 miles from Orange Walk Town, this freshwater lagoon is the locals favorite spot for a weekend picnic.
The Maya took residency at the lagoon from 1000 AD to 1500 AD. They lived along the shoreline and used the largest island for ceremonial purposes. Archaeologists have discovered artifacts and structures that suggest the communities that resided here were politically independent from their neighbors, but religiously and economically intertwined. A small ruin remains on the property of Chendo, and other evidence is still buried. Today Honey Camp is mostly owned by Belizean residents of Orange Walk who use it as a weekend get-away.
The nearest town of Orange Walk is a cultural mix of Mestizos (Spanish-Maya), Maya, Chinese, East Indians, Mennonites and Kriol. Here you can visit cultural centers like Banquita’s House of Culture, restaurants and food carts, and do your gift and grocery shopping. English is the native language, however you’ll notice locals will drift from English to Spanish to Creole to Mayan depending on who they’re talking with.
Sandfly is our neighbor, caretaker, dear friend, and an awesome resource for information. You will never forget this amazing Belizean.
