Do you think that Ambergris Caye could handle a 300 room resort with a flagship hotel (i.e. Holiday Inn, Radisson) with a Casino? and we know it would need to be kept to a 28 ft max height.
Conceptually it would include a 'Jungle Tour' on an elevated monorail (Disneyland type, hanging open gondola/tram type) as a main attraction to our 'eco resort' setting, also, a 'tropical style golf course', and the refurbishing of the existing 'old landing strip' including an 'airport terminal' and of course some kind of nearby accessibility for the cruise ships (i.e., some natural break in the reef for water-taxis passage).

I know this is a lot, but my questions are very real. Originally planned for a project in the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, there is a real hedge fund group (investor group) considering to move their next resort project to Ambergris Caye instead and the wonderful people of Ambergris Caye is the first one they'd like to hear from. Have a ball now kicking this idea around, we'll be carefully watching all responses... if any, funny or not, we really hope to found out as much as we can here, thank you much in advance. Fell free to contact me directly at mycybertaxi@aol.com

I am not a resident of Ambergris Caye, but the main reason that I love to visit there is that it does not have the type of resort (large hotel, golf course, cruise ship landing, casino, monorail, airport terminal) you want to build. If one comes, I'm afraid that more will follow. Sorry, Gypsyoo6, this is one vote against your project.

I'm afraid less who are regular visitors will continue to come. I think it will loose it's appeal to most people who choose to come here for the reasons they do. Where would you put this 'tropical style golf course', and what is the need for it. Caye Chappel is just 20 min from here and an entire island dedicated to golf!

People looking for what is described above already go to islands and countries that have been popular for years and already offer this. People who come to Belize come for mostly for all the other reasons.

Another vote against this project.

Gypsy, quite the troll post you've got going here.

On the off chance, you are slightly for real (or surreal, as the case may be), I think you'd be much better off taking a trip down to Ambergris for a week or two.

Then try and picture your 300 room complex with the monorail . . . ahahhahahahhaaa

ROFLMAO

Sounds absolutely horrible to me. I would agree to keep the Disney concept out of Belize.

And the cruise ships could dock at the new San Pedro Port.

LMAO

Absolutely, positively NOT!!!! Obviously you have never been there or you would not want to destroy the charm.
