Dr. David Allardice, an owner of the Green Parrot Beach Houses and Resort, received his doctorate degree in economics and spent 27 years in economic research with the Federal Reserve System. Given his interest in academia, the Green Parrot specializes in providing lodging for college and university groups, both undergrad and graduate level, who are traveling abroad.

Our discounted educational packages range from basic accommodations to a full experience that includes services listed below. Parties of 12-28 can take over our entire facility, and we will cater to the specific needs of your group. A feature of the Green Parrot location is that when your group fills the facility you will not be disrupted by other guests at the resort. Yet, should your students need more space, we can arrange to lodge additional guests at nearby resort locations.

We welcome the opportunity to provide activities that accompany or add uniqueness to each student’s experience. While at the Green Parrot we can arrange activities that will help your students grow and understand the varied world that is Belize:

• Cultural presentations

• Tours to Mayan ruins

• Custom excursions

• Zip line adventures

• Beach volleyball

• Speaking engagements by govt. officials on Belize’s current issues

• Snorkel trips in the world’s second longest barrier reef

• Visits to the first Jaguar Preserve in the world

• Boat trips to Monkey River

In addition to lodging and activities, we are happy to help you arrange flight, ground and water transportation, specialized meals and information for other Belize locations that interest your group.


Our resort experience happens to be one of direct association with schools, however, we are willing to entertain educational tour organizations representing colleges and universities.


In recent years the Green Parrot Resort has hosted a variety of universities including Northwestern, Pepperdine and Bethel University. We invite you to add your university or college to our valued list of participating institutions. Please contact us for information and rates.
