Report: GOB Selling Cangrejo Caye

Regardless of who wins the upcoming general elections, there are gonna be changes – and it seems the awareness of that is the single unifying force that’s pushing some questionable deals to get made. And prominent among those is one we heard of today. 7NEWS has received credible reports from multiple sources which say that government has finalized a deal to sell Cangrejo Caye to a well connected local developer.

The full details are not known – but we do know that Cangrejo Caye, which sits just southwest of San Pedro Town has been the subject of much scrutiny for some time. Island leaders and residents don’t want it sold – but reports to us say that it is on the block; the documents are in the mapping section at the Ministry of Natural Resources and the transaction is expected to be final by the end of the week. Cangrejo Caye is one of the larger islands in that area and is considered to be an important habitat for wildlife.

is there anything we, as non-residents, can do? (or was this intended for residents?)

signing the petition against the chalillo dam years ago didn't accomplish anything...

any suggestions?

This is really a shame. Cangrejo is a great fishery, and tarpon nursery. It's heavily fished by SP guides, and if they(and the resorts that use them) don't object, something is wrong.

The article in the San Pedro Daily states that it is being sold to "a well connected local developer".

Cangrejo Cays is a sizeable caye - about 1.75 miles long, located about 1.5 miles from of AC. It is the first caye of that size south and slightly west of the southern tipof Ambergris Caye. You fly over it when you land in SP.
