The New Year’s Jump!
Retreat in Belize

Join HawaH and friends for an exciting, fun-filled, rejuvenating New Year’s Adventure to beautiful Belize. Build your own schedule, explore with wild abandon, and create connections to catapult you into the auspicious year of 2020. 

Dec. 29, 2019 – Jan. 4, 2020

The island atmosphere is down-to-earth and unpretentious.  Without frills (there are no cars or vehicles on the island) but with all the amenities for your comfort. No need to dress up for dinner, carry around your wallet, wear shoes, or even use your alarm clock!

Play. Laugh. Connect. Rejuvenate

You will travel with us to South Water Caye – an idyllic island 15 acres in size, and one of the few islands off Belize that sit right atop the barrier reef! Leisurely pass from daily yoga, snorkeling, beach volleyball, kayaking, and reading in beachside hammocks for hours on end. Our island retreat center is located on the beach and just a few strokes away is world class snorkeling amongst coral and brightly colored fish. Relax and enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you:
  • Catching the cool trade winds and with verandas positioned to see sunrise and sunset, our comfortable Belizean styled wooden cottages are named after resident bird species.
  • Spacious rooms overlooking the reef crest in the main lodge are perfect for family and small groups.
  • Meals come with generous portions of local dishes and are served on our outdoor deck with light snacks and fruit juices always available.
  • Cold juices, hot drinks, local beer, wine and a full stocked bar are our bartender’s tools to fix your tropical delight!
  • Hammocks and lounge chairs await on your porch, on the beach and scattered throughout the property – “Hammock testing is an activity!”
  • Snorkel from the beach (try our guided night snorkel!), take an island hopping boat tour, scuba-dive, sunbathe, kayak, or do nothing at all.
  • Daily Yoga and Meditation classes to inspire your body and rejuvenate your spirit.
