OWN A PRIVATE ISLAND ON THE NEW RIVER IN NORTHERN BELIZE
New River, Orange Walk District, Belize
Own a Private Island on the New River in Northern Belize. This 134-acre island is a rare opportunity to purchase unspoiled land buffered on all sides by the river and enroute to the famous Lamanai Maya temple. Featuring 2.5 miles of prime riverfront plus an inlet into the property, the possibilities offered by this parcel are endless. Hundreds of years ago, the Maya people of Lamanai traversed this river transporting goods and produce from their fertile farms to exchange for the shell and salt fish from the people of Cerros village and those further along the coast and this island was very possibly a Mayan farm or waypoint. Daily tours to the temples at Lamanai pass on either side of this island and the reincarnation of what this island was is only awaiting development. The river is teeming with fish and wildlife abound on and around the island, making this a nature lover’s paradise. The land offers some high land suitable for crops or gardens and a myriad of wetland. Structures here are best built on stilts adding to the charm and character of the development. Although perfect for a tourist-based development, this property would make an exceptional private estate or a great investment.
