This expansive property is also home to a variety of beautiful Belizean hardwoods including mahogany, the gum tree, bullet seeds, black orchid trees, as well as Cohune Palm trees, showcasing the fertility of the land and its ability to grow an abundance of lush vegetation.

This parcel boasts easy access with over 1,500 feet of road front on Silver Creek Road, which connects directly to the Southern Highway.

This expansive property is just across the Southern Highway from Santa Cruz and less than 20 minutes from the Placencia Peninsula.

Santa Cruz is a quaint farming community with fantastic fresh produce, 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.

Placencia is less than a 30-minute drive south and is Belize’s 2nd most significant tourist destination. With beautiful soft white sands and stunning clear blue water, you’re just a short drive from Caribbean Beach Paradise.

Located in close proximity to popular attractions like the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Mayan World Adventure Park, this location presents a unique opportunity for tourism development that diverges from the mainstream offerings in Belize.

Consider building eco-friendly lodges, resorts, or treehouse accommodations to cater to the growing influx of eco-tourists and those seeking an unparalleled experience in the lush jungles of Belize.
