153 Acres of Fertile Land and Lush Jungle

ReMax VIP is thrilled to share this new listing of a 153.42 acre jungle parcel in Silver Creek. With fertile land, a large patch of savanna, dense jungle vegetation, and located just across the road from Santa Cruz, this parcel is a prime development opportunity, and truly encapsulates the natural beauty of Belize.


This parcel boasts easy access with over 2,775 feet of road front on Silver Creek Road, which connects directly to the Southern Highway. Being less than a mile from the Uno gas station just down the highway provides convenient access to gas for any vehicles or machinery, as well as easy access to the rest of Santa Cruz for food and entertainment, while still being a private and secluded area.

Santa Cruz is a quaint farming community with very fertile lands, fantastic fresh produce, many small markets and stores with good deals, and a few great restaurants and bars. Santa Cruz is one of the fastest growing communities in Belize and accommodates a majority of the workforce for the Placencia peninsula.

Many people migrate to Santa Cruz from further inland for work and the lifestyle. The Maya mountains are steps away and a fantastic spot to adventure for hikers, waterfall chasers, explorers, bird watchers, animal lovers, and general nature enthusiasts.

Located nearby are many attractions such as the Maya World Adventure Park, the Bocawina Rainforest Resort, and the world’s first Jaguar Sanctuary; Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary; popular adventures for tourists to visit while in the area.

Placencia is less than a 30 minute drive away, and is the 2nd largest tourist destination in Belize. With beautiful soft white sands, and stunning clear blue water, you’re just a short drive away from Caribbean Beach Paradise. Placencia Village itself is very lively, with a ton of amazing restaurants, bars, and shops; and celebrations and parties going on almost every day.

Development Potential

Belize emerges as an ideal destination for savvy investors seeking lucrative opportunities. This beautiful 153-acre property offers an exciting prospect to capitalize on the booming tourism industry in the country.

With its breathtaking natural beauty, diverse topography, pristine beaches, and thriving marine life, Belize magnetizes tourists worldwide. Investing in this property positions you strategically in this growing market, ensuring a steady stream of income from vacation rentals or potential resort development.

Whether preserving this fertile land in its natural state, establishing a resort, or creating a personal homestead, the possibilities for development across 153 acres are boundless. Situated less than 30 minutes from Placencia, this property presents an exceptional opportunity for tourism development that veers “off the beaten path.”

For instance, constructing eco-friendly lodges or resort accommodations can cater to eco-tourists and those seeking a distinctive jungle experience. Embracing sustainable building practices and responsible tourism can be pivotal selling points.

For a less intensive, and cheaper development approach, establishing camping facilities can cater to a diverse range of tourists, from budget travelers to those desiring a closer connection to nature during their Belize visit.

The expansive space also allows for the development of a residential community, either by subdividing the land for sale or constructing vacation rental homes for a more upscale tourist experience.

And of course, being fertile land, this expansive 153 acre property is the perfect opportunity to build a farmhouse or barn and grow food, raise livestock, or cultivate one of the many beautiful hard-woods native to Belize such as teak or mahogany.

Engaging in sustainable farming practices to cultivate organic produce such as peppers, citrus fruit, cacao, herbs, or other crops can draw in eco-tourists as well as benefit the local community and supply markets and restaurants in the area.
