The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) seems to remain at odds with Area Representative and Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Honourable Manuel Heredia Jr., over a proposed water taxi terminal at Ruby’s Hotel on the beachfront by San Pedro Belize Express Water Taxi. The water taxi company is currently operating from the Municipal Dock but has acquired the said property along with a dock, and allegedly has plans to build a boat terminal there.

Heredia stated that if the SPTC had objected when they were informed of the boat terminal plans, San Pedro Belize Express’ shareholders would not have acquired the property. “What kind of message are we sending to investors,” said Heredia. “If after they invest, they cannot proceed with their plans. You should communicate with the investors, negotiate and let them know what can or cannot be done.” Heredia could not confirm if the terminal by Ruby’s will still be built. When asked about the Sunset Boardwalk boat terminal, Heredia takes full responsibility for the project that continues only to be partially used. Inaugurated in 2014, at the cost of over five million dollars borrowed from the Inner-Development Bank (IDB), the multi-million-dollar project is only being used for international runs to Chetumal, Mexico by San Pedro Belize Express and International Water Jets. The other runs to Caye Caulker and Belize City are yet to use the designated terminal.

If approval is essential to a purchase, you get it in advance ...... the question is did they? Are we being duped?

Indeed, it doesn't make sense that if it were crucial that a pier permit and trade license to operate a water taxi operation were essential to their business plan they wouldn't have sought and secured permission prior to completing a purchase.

They can make good $$ on another mid-range hotel there - Move the taxi and build a nice new Ruby's.
