Frontier

My two weeks in Belize with Frontier were a shoeless, shirtless and timeless adventure. 

The motto of the charming and picturesque island on which the project is based is ‘go slow’ and you’d be hard-pressed not to immediately relax into such carefree, friendly and serene surroundings. 



Frontier’s base camp promises an authentically stripped-back experience, which includes fetching water in buckets, cooking rice and beans over a gass stove and sitting out on the dock staring out at the seemingly endless sky and ocean, disrupted only by a launching ray or the return of the resident barracuda. 



The marine conservation programme is holistic and informative. The staff teach a full and fun schedule of different species of fish, manatees and about the coral, algae, mangroves and seagrass which sustain them. Putting what you’ve learnt into practice when collecting data on survey dives and snorkels is all the more fun. Our observations about how delicately balanced these symbiotic relationships are are not only fascinating but of huge importance to the preservation of the island’s marine eco-systems. 



When off base there is time to grab a beer, dance out to some reggae or soca, pick up a tasty ‘fried jack’ or head out to hang with the uber-chill nurse sharks at a nearby snorkel site. A trip to see the breathtaking mayan ruins and zip-line through the tree canopy is well worth it. 

Bring your bug-spray and you’ll have a truly unforgettable experience and make memories which will stay with you forever. 



Thank you to everyone at Frontier!
