In a book by Glenn Godfrey, who was a Belizean Minister, entitled: AMBERGRIS CAYE: PARADISE WITH A PAST, he describes the Boca Bacalar as follows:
"Though abandoned by the Maya, Ambergris Caye did not remain uninhabited for long. By the beginning of the 17th Century, English, French and Dutch pirates were attacking the ships and towns of the Spanish Empire in the New World. These pirates needed remote retreats and safe harbors where they could care for their boats, rest their crews, hide their treasure, and obtain food and water for their next raid. Ambergris Caye probably served such a purpose. It was, like Cayo Cosina (later to be known as Saint George's Caye) a place where fresh water and food were readily obtained in good supply. The discovery of small treasure troves on the island and of gold coins washed upon the beach together with old bottles suggest that the island was visited often and its abundant resources utilized."
WOW !!! GOLD, ABUNDANT FOOD AND WATER NEAR BOCA BACALAR !!!
So can someone tell me how accessible pure drinking water and cheap organic food is near or on the Palm Bay Club property. Is it right there or are these two important commodities difficult to acquire there? Thanks, ELDORADO-777
