Much like Costa Rica in the early 1990s and Hawaii in the 1960s, Belize is undergoing an unprecedented land rush. Seeking a smart investment, speculators and developers are quickly snapping up homesites across Belize's best locations. Yet despite this influx and sudden interest, Belize remains a largely unexplored and untapped opportunity. With its thousands of acres of untamed rainforests, rugged mountains, stunning and secret coral reefs, uncharted Caribbean shores, and unspoiled cayes, Belize is still a paradise waiting to be discovered.
There has never been a better time to invest in Belizean property - now, before the economic recovery brings a glut of buyers, and before the baby-boomers start retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day. These future retirees represent the largest segment of real estate investors seeking second homes in a country that offers excellent amenities, affordable healthcare, abundant recreation, and attractive tax benefits.
EcoFutures Development strives to strengthen its position as an eco-lifestyle developer committed to supporting the principals of "green living" without compromising the natural settings surrounding our development. Each member of our team is dedicated to supporting this mission through collaboration, international and local market knowledge, productivity and personal integrity. By applying these principals to each transaction, we achieve the ultimate goal of client satisfaction.
Sanctuary Belize resides on a sprawling 14,000 acres of land (around the size of Manhattan). But only 4,000 of these acres have been designated for development. The rest remains preserved as a private wildlife reserve for our residents to enjoy.
Each phase of our development adheres to the high standards established in our Environmental Compliance Plan, approved by the Government of Belize. Our owners and builders take every measure possible to minimize our environmental impact.
While helping preserve the healthy state of the land, we are equally committed to promoting the health and well-being of our residents. Development plans include an on-site spa and fitness academy, as well as an organic fruit and vegetable garden with over 40 species, open to all residents free of charge.
Our development will encourage residents to experience the beauty of the surrounding environs and nature, with access to a wide range of outdoor activities and adventures. Through membership in the Sanctuary Belize Adventurer's League, residents enjoy scuba diving and water pursuits, fishing, hiking, mountain bike trails, and much more.
Sanctuary Belize is the only development endorsed by the Belizean Government. Our unique commitment to preserve over 2/3 of the property as a private wildlife preserve has the Minister of Public Utilities calling Sanctuary Belize "visionary…and an investment that will protect our heritage for future generations of Belizean...(We) welcome your idea to create the Eco sensitive and environmentally friendly Sanctuary and Wildlife Reserve and give it our full support." Sanctuary Belize remains committed to developing in a responsible and sustainable manner.
