Private Investigator: Boca del Rio Park up for sale?
Q: I was sitting at a restaurant this past week and unintentionally overheard a conversation between two individuals. They were saying that the Boca del Rio Park was up for sale. Is this true?
A: Parks fall under local government jurisdiction; as such they are the ones who recommend the sale of such property. The sale of the land would fall under the authority of the San Pedro Lots Committee which is chaired by Yolanda Parham. A call placed to her at the San Pedro Town Council was met with shock and she stated, “I can tell you that this is the first time that I am hearing about this. But, I can assure you that if this were to happen it would have to come to me for a recommendation. I would never recommend something like that. Never!”
Further investigation revealed that there is property close to the Boca del Rio Park that is being sold by Southwind Properties which was verified by Claudio Azueta. According to Azueta the property being sold is actually private property which has been used for years. This property formerly belonged to Chocolate Heredia, who now resides in Caye Caulker Village, and who passed it on to his son. Heredia’s son later sold it to a private investor who is now interested in selling the lot.
