Ambergris caye is 90% lagoon & "swamp". Only the east coast has a narrow strip of high beach land which is naturally habitable.
Habaneros area has about 200ft of high sand from the shoreline inward and then changes to areas of high and low ground. in the dry season most of this land is dry and in the rainy season most of this area has standing water or waterloged ground. a 16,000 lot would typically fall in this zone.
follow jesse's advice.

add another 0 to your price limit and you will be out of the swamp.

sorry but ac has 90% uninhabitable land ( which incuded the lagoons in its area as 'land'). even the basil jones area is mostly uninhabitable in the wet season. if you fly this area during this time you will see water glistening under the "jungle" in the majority of this area...the govt officials seems to think otherwise but none of them have ventured more than 20 ft past the airstrip!!. ask any tropic or maya pilot if this area is not flooded half the year.
the area of habaneros which has 16k lots in the back is 100% of similar quality. some of habaneros does have high land that goes back 1000ft or so and yes - there are pigs deer and ocelots...jaguars are doubtful any more..
however if you want to pay some florida land scammer 16k then go ahead but you have been warned! and tiger woods is NOT building a golf course just to the north of your lot......

I recently chartered a plane and have great aerial photos from one end of Ambergris to the other. I'm more than happy to share them. Stop in our office and I'll print them or I can email. There's quite a few though, so expect several emails if that's the method you prefer.

as you can see by sal's map he has the area of DFC marked as "land" as wel as the area just north west of the pull ferry where the new shanty town is developing. in 1999 these areas were 100% red mangroves..commony referred to as 'swamp!'

reflections = standing water = no drainage

i rest my case.
