The Balam Escape is 9,500 acres of zoned and entitled land, which includes a private island, in Belize, Central America that is ideal for developing several resorts and residential communities. The land is situated in an idyllic tropical location consisting of waterfront and forest land (jungle). It is located along 5 miles of waterfront beaches and lagoons on the Belizian mainland and it's part of the Balam Jungle.

The land is ideally suited for the developer to advantageously include environmental, sustainability, ecotourism and edutainment themes. The property is also ideal for land-banking for a future master planned community where the developer can leverage the vast natural resources of the land and location.

The property is planned with a 3,000 acre afforestation project together with an already existing 600 acre of mangroves, 1,000 acre forest and 1,500 acres of lagoons. This allows for a spacious ratio of 50:50 of buildable-to-open space, further enhanced by the idyllic natural setting. It represents a vision of a truly sustainable, carbon-neutral and (almost) zero waste community; a bold endeavor that overcomes the traditional challenges of real estate development and holistic living.

The investment climate is favorable in Belize. There are no capital gains taxes or inheritance taxes. The Qualified Retired Persons (QRP) program and other government incentive programs further attract investors. Belize is the only English speaking, English Common Law country in Central America and its currency has been pegged to the US Dollar for over 25 years. Its tourism sector has been growing as much as 10% yearly for the past several years and is further gaining recognition as a major eco‐tourism destination. Belize is convenient to fly into from many international cities (just a few hours from several key cities in Canada and the USA)

This is a rare and exciting opportunity with several investment possiblities including an outright land sale for a new owner to land bank or a joint venture with the current owner. With The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) already completed and approved by the Government of Belize, and The Environmental Compliance Plan (ECP) current and up to date, the future owner (or co-owner) and developer (or co-developer) would benefit from an expedited commencement which would greatly improve ROI and give momentum for the full realization and economic success of all phases.
