There is a proposal for a new project in Belize City which would see the old capital exploring water sports at Sandlighter’s Promenade. It’s an innovative concept which has been presented to all relevant regulatory stakeholders by young investor Raul Pelayo. It’s called Mayan Cable Tubing Limited, and this afternoon there was a soft launch at City Hall to allow the public to get a first look.

Darrell Bradley, Belize City Mayor

“The Council has been considering this proposal for some time, actually several months. I know we had made a briefing about it previously. I know that Mister Pelayo had gone on the media previously and one of the things that we mean to do by this press briefing is to lay out the proposal to the public so that people will be able to understand, appreciate the extent of the project and so that they would be able to give response, feedback, criticism and to advise in relation to the direction.”

“It’s a mixture of water wake boarding and high line obstacle coursing. Wakeboarding is simply two towers, one on land, one in water or we can have two in water. And there is a cable that attaches both of these towers that go in the water and there is a main motor that shifts these lines out and bring it back and there is one line that drops, that suspends off this cable. And an individual with a wakeboard, a vest and a helmet, which is properly trained….you go through training and then you hold on to this cable line and then you get repelled, you ski, surf on top of the water…wakeboard.”

Promising Project For Promenade Asks For Public Input

The Belize City Council is calling on all members of the public to join them at a public consultation at the Sandlighters promenade to discuss a proposed project for the construction a unique operation along the sea wall. The project is called, “Maya Cable Tubing” and it is the brain child of Raul Pelayo a Belizean entrepreneur. He plans to use a portion of the promenade along New Town Barracks to build the base for his high line water ski business. We learnt more about the proposed project at today’s press conference- which was really more of a call for public input before the City Council green lights the project.

According to the developer, the project has gone through all the proper procedures including environmental assessments. Now only public approval is left. The public consultation takes place tomorrow at the Sandlighters promenade from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. You are being invited to come out and express your views and concerns, which the City Council says will be taken into account before making a final decision.
