Hi I am in the process of looking for a site of the first underwater colony in the world. Does anyone know about how to proceed with government approvals? The colony is eco oriented. If anyone is interested in the colony, let me know and I'll email the outline. Also I'm interested in local entrepenuers in the tourism industry. Thanks.
Government official-- well if you're talking a salt water colony off Ambergris Caye, my first contact would be Senor Paisano Esq. c/o The San Pedro Town Board on Front Street. He can get you up to speed on the ins and outs of Belizean regulations concerning such developments.
Now if this is to be a fresh water (or brackish water) colony there used to be a local gentleman with the unlikely surname of Satan who could found south of San Pedro in an area completely devoid of small pets. He would have been the local expert on such developments. I'm not sure who his succesor is however.
This kind of reminds me of the guy I met on the water taxi to San Pedro. He actually had plans to build the "World's Largest Cruise Ship" in Belize. He said he had plans to hire 200,000 workers to build it here! He told me he had "met and was given approval" from the Gov't of Belize! Can you believe it!
