A great opportunity to start a Belize small farm from scratch. This 20.069 acres of Belize farm land is located on the Barranco Road in the Toledo District at about four miles north of Barranco Village and a mile south of Midway Village. Prefect for a homestead or an eco-lodge. At present the property is in its natural state, located on high ground with a seasonal creek. Electricity is available at the property line and a high water table in the area guarantees easy digging of a well. Rain water harvesting is also a good option with the district normally receiving the most rainfall. Like most of the Toledo District, the soil is fertile and suitable for any crop that will grow locally. Small livestock would also be a good consideration. The district is steadily increasing its cacoa production and is being recognized locally and internationally by chocolate manufacturers.
Punta Gorda Town is about 45 minutes away by road and it offers all public services. It also has a municipal airstrip with regular flights from two local carriers. It can be reached by boat from Barranco Village. Several beautiful cayes are just offshore where fishing is always spectacular. The Toledo District has several archeological sites and caves that could be incorporated into the activities of a jungle lodge. Locals are welcoming and most are willing to share their culture with visitors.and are available to provide affordable labor. Primary schools are available in the two nearby villages while high schools and tertiary level are available in Punta Gorda with daily bus runs from the village.
