The Island Life - Belize
“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
Leonel is like a breath of fresh air. He embodies the Belizean spirit. His smile is contagious and you can't help but want to take him home with you. Because Leonel sees the beauty. He sees the beauty in people. And he sees the beauty in art. St George's Caye isn't complete without Leo's beautiful outlook.
When you arrive to St. George's Caye Resort Leo is one of the first team members you'll meet. You will mostly find him mixing your favorite cocktails and making sure your beer is ice cold. But Leo also loves to entertain. He's full of fun card tricks and bar games that will leave you scratching you're head. But don't ask him how he does it - because he won't tell. Sworn to secrecy by a fellow magician Leo takes his oath seriously and won't share the tricks of the trade.
Leonel knows how we do just about everything here at St. George's Caye. And can help you find you way around, grab you a fresh coconut drink or help you book your tours and diving.
But when Leo is not using his talents to create amazing vacations for our guests - he uses his time to make art. Beautiful art. Check out some of his latest paintings. They go fast so hurry on down to Belize to grab a unique piece of art. Aren't these amazing!?
Before painting, Leo was an artist designing and creating tattoos and t-shirts for special occasions. He was recently in Belize City at the annual tattoo expo sharing his love for art with others.
Like many of our team members Leonel was born and raised in Valley of Peace, Cayo District in Belize. His father is a farmer like many Valley residents - as the area is ripe for healthy crops and cattle - and his mother is a chef at a local restaurant. Leo has a brother David, who is a team member in the kitchen and younger sister who is continuing her education.
Come see the beauty Leonel sees everyday at St George's Caye Resort. His beautiful spirit is essential to a care-free vacation in Belize.
