Does anyone know anything about this development? Is it for real? It looks extremely expensive and speculative. I am concerned that it will ruin Lighthouse reef. Any comments?

Me thinks everyone better enjoy their favorite places in Belize, especially AC and the other cayes because development is starting and coming with a vengence and there will be no turning anything back. Belize does not have the means or the tenacity to stop it. " Money talks and the old bullshit walks ". Let me guess where most of the develpoment and palm greasing money is coming from!!! Right where most of the people on this board come from.

Isn't it funny how when people try to raise money to build a shelter for dogs, or worse yet, people bring pencils from home for school kids, it's hard to make it happen. But open an area for development on the ocean and the money flood gates open!!!!

It's kinda like the drug trade: These kinds of developments wouldn't exist if there weren't demand, mostly from the U.S., for them.

The sad thing is that many if not most of the buyers haven't even been to Belize. It's like the people a couple of years ago who bought timeshares up on North Ambergris over the Internet. I guess these folks just have a dream idea of what life on a tropical island would be like and they take fork over money without even spending a few days checking it out.

There has been ample discussion about this project. Just do a search under Long Caye development. Check out the one dated 7/23/02. That shows that not only people who have not been here support it, but also people from this board who even profess to care about Belize and it's resources who have bought there. Hypocracy at it's best! mad

Not a chance in hell of being completed in the next 10 years and even less if one thinks that it is going to be completed like the developer said it would be

What a shame. There would be a great demand for the medical facility ( especially the psychiatric ward ) for all those people like Scubalady and Munichchick that bought into that "eco-friendly" development bull s**t and tried to convince others what a great idea it is. :rolleyes:
