Recession affects the number of tourist accommodations on Ambergris Caye
As a San Pedro Warden for the US Embassy I have just completed the 2012 survey of location and contact information for the hotels, condos, and guest houses on Ambergris Caye.

This information will be used for disaster planning and locating tourists in the event of a emergency. Currently Ambergris Caye has 1748 tourist units with an additional 77 to be opened this year in three new hotels. A unit is a guest accommodation that can range from a single room to a 5 bedroom villa.
Between 2005 and 2007 there were approximately 300 new units added to Ambergris Caye.

Between 2007 and 2009 there were approximately 400 new units added bringing the 2009 total to 1957 units. An additional 680 units were under construction in 2009. Many of the units were never completed. A number of hotels and condos closed and others cut expenses by having owners/managers move into one or more units. A large number of condo units became homes for seasonal and full time guests.

Recession Affects Number of Tourist Accommodations on Ambergris Caye

Will Lala, the San Pedro Warden for the US Embassy has just completed the 2012 survey of location and contact information for the hotels, condos, and guest houses on Ambergris Caye. This information is used for disaster planning and locating tourists in the event of a emergency.

Currently (2012) Ambergris Caye has 1,748 tourist units with an additional 77 to be opened this year in three new hotels. A unit is a guest accommodation that can range from a single room to a 5 bedroom villa.

Between 2005 and 2007 there were approximately 300 new units added to Ambergris Caye. Between 2007 and 2009 there were approximately 400 new units added bringing the 2009 total to 1,957 units. So, there was a huge drop of 209 units between 2005 and 2012. An additional 680 units were under construction in 2009 and his report indicates that many of the units were never completed.

A number of hotels and condos closed and others cut expenses by having owners/managers move into one or more units. A large number of condo units became homes for seasonal and full time guests. All of this has also cut down on the number of available units on the island.

These are the bare facts. Hotel rooms or tourist units seem to have been on a steady decline.
