The Belize government – with the financial backing of the United Kingdom, are far along in the paving of Belize’s Coastal Highway. This region ~ the closest destination-resort location to Belize’s international airport ~ is about to become closer and much more accessible. With new bridges, realignment and paving due for completion in 2023, careful development is already taking place ~ as property values increase.
We have a number of spectacular properties on Belize’s coast with resort-quality Caribbean beaches, approximately 23 miles due south of Belize City, 15 miles due north of Dangriga, in Belize’s “Manatee” area. This area is now a 90 minute drive from Belize’s international airport (“BZE”) along the under-construction Coastal Highway; by boat it is 90 minutes from Belize City via an unforgettably beautiful journey through pristine jungle rivers and seaside lagoons; and by air it is a 14 minute flight from the BZE airport. One of the properties has a permitted, paved airstrip able to handle any aircraft licensed to fly in Belize. Service is availiable through Helicopter and air charter service. It is along an established air route.
Some of the properties include profitable citrus groves, a working shrimp farm, private beach villas, and mountain jungles in wild abundance. They surround the Southern Lagoon, an IUCN Category IV Wildlife Sanctuary. Their beaches are private and secluded due to the undeveloped surroundings and large acreage of the properties. This area is arguably Belize’s most beautiful, exotic area with incredible natural diversity. Its vast wild lands and rich estuaries are home to primordial populations of aquatic, terrestrial, and aerial fauna and flora.
Some properties have grid power, some are off-grid. Caribbean breezes favour the area; average rainfall here is less than further south in the Stann Creek and Toledo Districts. Farmland here have grown rice, vegetables & fruit. This area, the Southern Lagoon and its 7 tributaries, out into the Caribbean Sea ~ is an astounding tarpon fishing ground, offering some of the best sport fishing on earth.
