The “Cerros Peninsula" of
Belize has remained uninhabited since the Golden Age of the
Mayans, around 900 AD. Two Mayan Pyramids still stand in the
jungle adjacent to the property, although they have been officially
“discovered” and archeologically surveyed, much
of the site remains undisturbed.
In July 2004, Mark Leonard of Paradise
Development Ltd. acquired the land and named the project Cerros
Sands. Infrastructure work began in the late 2004 and further
enhancements are continuing. Now in December of 2005 we offer
this property to the world. Now this unspoiled tropical paradise
will become home to those in search of change, peace, tranquillity,
and security. An opportunity to retire, vacation, holiday or
even work in paradise.
If you have dreamed of living or retiring
in a natural setting outside the hustle and bustle most of us
have unfortunately become accustomed, and if you have security
concerns, we invite you to explore the ownership opportunities
in Cerros Sands Corozal, Belize.
