98 Acres of Development Potential!
ReMax VIP is thrilled to share this new listing of a 98.4 acre savanna parcel. With expansive savanna land and located just across the road from Santa Cruz, this parcel is a prime development opportunity. Belize’s stable economy and increasing popularity as a tourist destination make this property an attractive investment opportunity.
This large parcel has much to offer with stunning mountain views, freshwater ponds, abundant bio-diversity, and beautiful spanning savanna; it truly encapsulates the natural beauty of Belize.
Whether you’re looking to leave the land in its natural state, develop a resort, or build your own homestead; with 98 Acres to use, the opportunities for development are endless. With Placencia less than 30 minutes away, and local attractions such as the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Mayan World adventure park even closer, this is a fantastic location to develop for tourism that is more “off the beaten path” than the current offerings in this area of Belize.
For example; constructing eco-friendly lodges, or resort accommodations can cater to the eco-tourists that flock to Belize and those seeking a unique jungle experience. Sustainable building practices and responsible tourism can be key selling points. Like many others in this region you can engage in sustainable farming practices to grow organic produce, herbs, or other crops. This can serve the local community, as well as their many markets and restaurants.
For less development work, you could develop camping facilities; this can cater to a range of tourists, from budget travelers to those looking for a closer connection to nature on their visit to Belize.
With the strong Garifuna roots in the area you could create cultural experiences for tourists, including traditional ceremonies, art demonstrations, or local cuisine. This can involve collaboration with the large local indigenous community to showcase their unique cultural heritage and sell their beautiful handmade crafts, jewelry, and textiles inspired by jungle themes.
With so much space you could even start development of a residential community; subdividing the land for sale, or building vacation rental homes for a more upscale tourist experience.
Why invest in Belize? Belize is an ideal development destination for savvy investors looking for a lucrative opportunity. The beautiful 98-acre property offers an exciting prospect for those seeking to capitalize on the booming tourism industry in the country. With its stunning natural beauty, topographical variety, pristine beaches, and thriving marine life, Belize is a magnet for tourists from around the world. Investing in this property grants you a prime position in this growing market, ensuring a steady stream of income from vacation rentals or a potential resort development.
This parcel boasts easy road access with 3,047 feet of frontage on Silver Creek Camp Road, which connects directly to the Southern Highway, and 3,070 feet of road frontage on the Highway itself. Being less than a half 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 tools, food, and entertainment, while still being your own private and secluded area.
Santa Cruz is a quaint farming community with fantastic fresh produce, small markets and stores, 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.
The Placencia Peninsula 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. The long and narrow stretch of coastline is lined with palm trees, creating a picturesque setting for visitors to enjoy sunbathing, swimming, and water activities. Placencia Village itself is very lively, with a ton of amazing restaurants, bars, and shops; and celebrations and parties going on almost every day. Placencia has become a very sought-after destination for travelers seeking a relaxed and tropical getaway.
