I just read about a condo complex being built on Ambergris "just north of the river." http://www.pelicanpropertiesbelize.com/rv.html Excuse my ignorance, but is this "river", the same a "the cut" with the hand farey? If so, that kind of large scale development will serious alter the feel of one of my favorite parts of the island. Any thoughts?

...alter your feel?

best advice, .... buy all the condos preconstruction, ..... and then ask them not to build.

If you are not in a position to do so, I guess your feelings will definitely be altered.

So, SIN, I take it you're for Cancun-style development in Belize?

Well ............. um ........... yeah.

Unless you can singlehandedly support all the individuals and families that will be employed directly or indirectly by these developements.

Cancun is a bit of an extreme.

The keyword here is "sustainable developement".

I read your profile, SIN and now it all makes sense. You must be planning to make money on this project. Time share salesmen have changed "the feel" of the island as much as the tacky condos themselves. Hope you make a million.

......while you make money off these tacky f##king condos, the island loses its charm. So, do you use the "hassle tourists at the beach" sales approach or the "free vacation in exchange for sitting through a painfully boring presentation" approach? Just curious.

............to be honest, neither. Different developer.

Let me ask you a question.

Do you live here? If no, when is the last time you have been here? Where have you stayed?

What did you like or dislike about Ambergris.
