Science + Soul Wellness was founded by Steven Rigo and Paulette Gloria Harwood to create a space where all people - seeking a private secluded sanctuary to let go and absorb the beauty of the spectacular surroundings. All guests have the opportunity to come together to play, dine, practice, heal, and live life with purpose and freedom. 

We came to Ambergris Caye in Belize because we wanted roots and wings. Roots of belonging, connecting to nature, connection to other like minded people. And wings of freedom, adventure, wildness, and life.
