Videos of the new beach at the Boca Del Río Area
The Belize Tourism Board and the San Pedro Town Council recently finished giving the Boca Del Rio area of the island a major facelift. It's called the Boca Del Rio Project, and it included reclaiming beachfront that was washed away due to erosion.
Once that was completed, the contractors constructed a 100 feet by 100 feet swimming area, a reinforced seawall, as well as other amenities for locals and tourists alike to enjoy. The total cost of the works is estimated at over $250,000, and it was carried out by the San Pedro construction company, Cayo Frances Limited.
The new Boca Del Rio Beach was officially opened yesterday, and here's what the Mayor and the Area Representative had to say about the grand improvement:
The project was completed in 3 months.
Boca del Rio park and beach rehabilitation project inaugurated
The successful completion of the beach reclamation project at the Boca del Rio Area in San Pedro Town has given way for a new recreational facility for island residents and visitors alike ahead of the Easter Holidays. San Pedro now has a new beach along with a refurbished park in the said area- a project spearheaded by the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) in collaboration with The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC). It was officially inaugurated on Sunday, April 14th with a ribbon cutting ceremony officiated by Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Honorable Manuel Heredia Jr., Mayor Daniel Guerrero and staff of the SPTC and the BTB respectively.
