What Does a US$400 Million Investment Even Look Like?
In a lot of bigger countries, an investment like that might not look like much.
But as you know, money goes a lot further in Belize. And an investment like this one, in little Belize, is a big boost of confidence.
Norwegian Cruise Lines didn’t just buy an island. Starting in November 2016, Harvest Caye will be welcoming cruise passengers to a 75-acre tropical paradise. The country’s only pier capable of handling these enormous cruise ships will also feature an enormous (15,000 sq ft) swimming pool, a sports-friendly salt-water lagoon, seven acres of glorious beach and an easy base for frequent excursions to the mainland for jungle zip lining, or to the barrier reef for snorkel trips and SCUBA diving.

With the only cruise pier in the country, cruise passengers from Orlando, Miami and Tampa and even from New Orleans and as far away as New York City will be able to easily board and disembark. The port will also welcome passengers from Regent Seven Seas and Oceania cruises. Current cruise passengers into Belize City can only visit by tender boats that ferry them into the port.
But the island is also to house multiple 10-person beach villas and canopy cabanas all along its six miles of beaches. There will also be numerous eateries, clubs and entertainment centers and the island’s manatees birds will be not only protected but a little more accessible to guests.
Just south of Placencia, Harvest Caye is also easily reachable from Kanantik Belize, and increasing volleys of fog horns from the passing ships are not likely to disturb residents.
Your money goes way further in Belize. But wait till you see what that much money can buy.
We’re looking into a few way to get future tours, and eventually residents, onto Harvest Caye for a little adventure of their own.
We hope you’ll join us soon!
