Prime Development Opportunity!  87 Acres of Lush Jungle

ReMax VIP is thrilled to share this new listing of a 87.38 acre jungle parcel in Silver Creek. With fertile land, lush jungle vegetation, and located just across the road from Santa Cruz, this parcel is a prime development opportunity.

This large parcel has much to offer with stunning mountain views, freshwater creeks and ponds, dark fertile soil, and beautiful thick jungle; it truly encapsulates the natural beauty of Belize.

Opportunity for Development

Whether your vision is to preserve the land’s natural beauty, create a resort oasis, or establish your own homestead, the vast expanse of 87 acres opens up a realm of possibilities for development. Situated less than 30 minutes away from Placencia and in close proximity to attractions like the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Mayan World adventure park, this location presents an excellent opportunity for tourism development that diverges from the mainstream offerings in this region of Belize.

For instance; crafting eco-friendly lodges, resorts, or treehouse accommodations caters to the growing influx of eco-tourists in Belize and those seeking an unparalleled experience in the lush jungles of Belize. Embracing sustainable building practices and promoting responsible tourism can serve as compelling selling points. Alternatively, engaging in agroforestry or sustainable farming practices aligns with the region’s ethos, providing organic produce to the local community and various markets and restaurants.

For a lighter development touch, establishing camping facilities appeals to a diverse range of tourists, from budget-conscious travelers to those craving a closer communion with nature during their Belizean sojourn.

Given the strong Garifuna cultural roots in the area, curating cultural experiences for tourists becomes a viable venture. This may involve orchestrating traditional ceremonies, hosting art demonstrations, and offering local cuisine. Collaborating with the local indigenous community allows for the showcasing of their distinctive cultural heritage and the sale of beautifully crafted handmade goods, jewelry, and textiles inspired by the jungle ambiance.

With the ample space available, embarking on the development of a residential community becomes a feasible option. Subdividing the land for sale or constructing vacation rental homes can cater to those seeking a more upscale tourist experience.

Why consider investing in Belize? This idyllic 87-acre property presents an enticing opportunity for astute investors keen on tapping into the flourishing tourism industry in the country. Belize, with its breathtaking natural allure, lush jungle vegetation, diverse topography, pristine beaches, and vibrant marine life, magnetizes tourists globally. Investing in this property secures a strategic position in this thriving market, ensuring a consistent income stream from vacation rentals or the potential development of a resort.

Location Benefits

This parcel boasts easy access with almost 1,400 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 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 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.
