Imagine seeing hummingbirds daily, jumping into the Caribbean Sea after work, or hiking to a secluded waterfall. Can you blame me for moving here after visiting as a Master student many years ago? My journey in Belize has taken me through sustainable seaweed farming, interviewing fishermen at remote islands, photographing people from all over, and now Noma! I want you to feel the magic of Belize, just as I did when I first came here. Let me introduce you to the turquoise blue of the Caribbean Sea, the calming sounds of the jungle, the tastes of the fresh tropical fruits and smells of home cooking from open houses. I have a hammock waiting here, with your name on it!

Noma Collective is the best remote work experience I have ever had. Your work days consist of beachside conference calls, quick dips in the pool for breaks, and feeling the cooling breeze while you complete tasks under a palapa. When you aren't working the community is amazing and there are always plenty of excursions (planned for you) so you can experience the beauty of your host country. I can't say enough about Noma Collective and the program they offer to digital nomads. Book it now!


My only complaint about Noma is that they somehow massively undersell the experience. You will come away with indelible memories and your new best friends. Noma has curated a space that effectively allows you to get your work done, explore Belize, and experience profound personal and professional growth.


So thrilled with my experience! One month at Noma Belize wasn’t enough. If you are even slightly thinking about booking - do it, you will not regret it. You will have access to an awesome community, beach, jungle and so much more. Belize itself is pure adventure, and the Noma team make the time incredible.
