For anyone who doesn't know, this is a massive development across the south end of Ambergris Caye that according to their website (http://www.southbeachbelize.com/index.php) is already approved and will definitely happen.

As many have observed already, it is essentially a recreation of Miami South Beach on a smaller scale. It will not just change Ambergris Caye, it will totally subsume it, or at any rate the southern part. And clearly it will be an ecological disaster. The most dramatic example of "killing the goose that lays the golden egg".

A local person, unnamed, lists himself as the contact point, number 226-2769. Does anyone have any idea who this person might be?

And since money is behind most of what happens here, who expects to make their millions from this project? Assuming the government does actually change in the election, it seem that stopping this and the bird caye developments is of the highest priority. Otherwise we can expect the whole island to become like Cancun, with a dead reef just offshore.

The cynical self-interest of the people who have managed to gain political control is mind-boggling.
