97 Acres of Jungle Paradise
ReMax VIP is excited to unveil a captivating new listing—a vast 97-acre jungle paradise. Nestled amidst verdant landscapes, this parcel, situated just across the road from Santa Cruz, offers an unparalleled opportunity for development.
Enveloped in lush jungle foliage, blessed with fertile land, and graced with stunning mountain vistas, this expansive property embodies the untouched beauty of Belize. The dark, fertile soil and the dense, beautiful jungle create an enchanting backdrop, inviting visionary developers to explore the untapped potential within.
Exploring Development Possibilities
Whether your ambition is to preserve the natural allure of the land, establish a resort oasis, or build a personal homestead, the sprawling 97 acres present endless possibilities for development in this jungle paradise. Located less than 30 minutes from Placencia and close to attractions like the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Mayan World adventure park, this property provides a unique opportunity for tourism development that breaks away from conventional offerings in Belize.
Consider crafting eco-friendly lodges, resorts, or treehouse accommodations to cater to the growing wave of eco-tourists and those seeking an extraordinary experience within Belize’s lush jungles. Embracing sustainable building practices and promoting responsible tourism can be compelling selling points.
For a lighter touch, establishing camping facilities appeals to a diverse range of tourists, from budget-conscious travelers to those seeking a closer communion with nature during their Belizean adventure.
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 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 Belize? This 97-acre parcel is an enticing opportunity for savvy investors looking to tap 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 jungle paradise secures a strategic position in this thriving market, ensuring a consistent income stream from vacation rentals or the potential development of a resort.
This parcel boasts easy access with 3,970 feet of road frontage on Silver Creek Road, directly connected to the Southern Highway. Less than a mile from the Uno gas station down the highway, it provides convenient access to fuel for vehicles or machinery, as well as easy access to the amenities of Santa Cruz.
Santa Cruz, a growing farming community, offers fresh produce, markets, stores, restaurants, and bars, creating a vibrant lifestyle. The Maya mountains are steps away, offering adventures for hikers, explorers, bird watchers, animal lovers, and nature enthusiasts.
Less than 30 minutes away is Placencia, the second-largest tourist destination in Belize. With its soft white sands and clear blue waters, it’s a short drive to a Caribbean Beach Paradise. Placencia Village is lively, with amazing restaurants, bars, shops, and frequent celebrations and parties.
Further north is Hopkins village; a charming coastal village community known for its relaxed atmosphere, friendly community, and beautiful panoramic views of the mountains and sea. The village has a vibrant Garifuna cultural scene with drumming, dancing, and other traditional customs being an integral part of daily life.
Hopkins is situated along the Caribbean coast, and much like Placencia, boasts beautiful white sandy beaches. The village provides a more relaxed and authentic coastal experience compared to some of the more developed tourist areas in Belize.
