Description

131 Acres of Lush Jungle

ReMax VIP is thrilled to share this new listing of 131 Acres of lush jungle. Situated just south of Hopkins junction, and less than 15 minutes west of the Caribbean Sea, this beautiful parcel is in a perfect location for a new development.

This property is located just south of Hopkins junction, with just under 650 feet of road frontage on the Southern Highway.

This parcel is home to a large year-round creek, that runs directly through the middle of the property, which drains water from the Maya Mountains and deposits this nutrient rich rain water on its banks.

With its fertile land, many different varieties of trees are able to grow including, but not limited to; Cahoons, coconut, Santa Marias, as well as Emory trees.

Location

This property is just at the base of the Maya Mountains, a beautiful mountain range that runs through much of Southern Belize and is home to many thrilling adventures and national parks. The Maya Mountains are home to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, known as the world’s first jaguar reserve.

Less than 5 minutes from this property is the Mayan Heights resort, a resort and restaurant atop the Maya Mountains with breathtaking views and delicious traditional Belizean dishes. Explore ancient Maya ruins, hike through lush rainforests, or take a refreshing dip in breathtaking waterfalls and freshwater springs. This beautiful region of Belize has something for everyone.

The nearby village of Hopkins is a hidden gem located on the stunning coast of Belize. With its pristine sandy beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters, Hopkins is a dream destination for those seeking a tranquil and picturesque retreat.

Hopkins boasts a vibrant tourism scene that attracts travelers from all around the world. Its untouched natural beauty, combined with the warm hospitality of the locals, creates an unforgettable experience. Hopkins also serves as a gateway to an abundance of natural wonders.

Hopkins is also known for its rich cultural heritage, the vibrant Garifuna culture thrives in Hopkins. Immerse yourself in traditional music, dance, and cuisine, and engage with warm and welcoming locals. Experience the authenticity of local celebrations, such as the Garifuna Settlement Day, where you can witness colorful parades and cultural performances.

Join a close-knit community that embraces diversity and fosters strong bonds among visitors as well as its residents. Hopkins offers a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, where neighbors become friends and lifelong connections are formed. Engage in community events, participate in local initiatives, and create lasting memories with like-minded individuals.

Opportunity for Development

With beautiful fertile land and lush jungle vegetation, this property is prime for development.

With 131 acres of fertile land to work with, this parcel would be a perfect opportunity for the development of a farm. Farming plays a significant role in the economy and food security of Belize. The various crops grown in Belize are diverse, including both traditional and non-traditional crops and livestock. The Belizean government supports the agriculture through various initiatives, including extension services, training programs, and incentives promoting sustainable practices. Consider growing some of the many crops that thrive in the beautiful climate and soil conditions of Belize, such as citrus fruits, coconut, cacao, sugar cane, peppers, vegetables or hardwood trees. A large farm would also provide many jobs to the locals in this area, and greatly stimulate the local economy.

Developing renewable energy projects, such as solar or wind farms, could also prove to be a lucrative venture. The Belizean government has implemented initiatives and policies to promote solar energy, including incentives for individuals and businesses adopting solar technologies. While wind energy has not been as prominent as solar energy in Belize, there have been discussions and plans for wind farm projects.

With Hopkins and the Caribbean sea less than 15 minutes away, a development in the tourism industry may be the venture for you; subdividing the land for residential development of lodges or vacation homes, or even establishing a resort could prove to be a very lucrative project in this area. Being in close proximity to many great tourist attractions such as the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sancuary, the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, the Maya Heights Resort and restaurant, and the Blue Hole National Park, is sure to bring in tourists from all across the globe.
