Delsie and Gerrt at Caye International Bank

If you look around San Pedro, we have all the workings of a big city. Our infrastructure matches with those of a city; we have a large hospital (poly clinic), one of the largest airports in the country, our own water processing plant, large shopping centers, almost all the bank branches in the country, the most number of hotel rooms in the country, and the list goes on.

Little by little our small quaint island has been transforming into a small city as tourism has been spurting growth throughout the island. Buildings are getting taller, although four story buildings are only allowed in the outskirts of town. A clear indication of all this development is that San Pedro now boasts its first escalator and a new elevator.

The escalator is located at Wings, the island’s largest department store, where it takes shoppers to the store’s second floor. Wings just recently inaugurated its new and improved store at the end of last year. To our knowledge there are a few other escalators located in stores at the Corozal Free Zone and nowhere else in the country.

The new elevator belongs to Caye International Bank that also just recently inaugurated its four-story building on Coconut Drive, south of San Pedro Town. The elevator makes it easy for customers to more conveniently reach their office on the top floor. The only other elevator that we are aware of on the island is at Captain Morgan’s Retreat.

There is also an elevator at Corona del Mar. It has been there a few years that I know of.

What do you do in New Jersey? Or on your cruise ships?
San Pedro has talented people to maintain and repair equipment. thats why your condo still functions after all these years.

Jessie, Maybe there is talent but few spare parts.
That can be a problem with this type of equipment.

We have access to spare parts here in New Jersey if not we can get them fast.

At least with the escalater you can still walk up or down if it's broken, Elevators are a different story.
