Yearwood Properties is excited to introduce “ZAMA CAYE Belize”. It is a very special tropical private island located just off the very southern tip of the 16-mile popular beach tourist village of Placencia in southern Belize. The water surrounding is crystal clear with spectacular living coral and marine life. A true snorkelers paradise! And if you enjoy lobster, just step into the waters and fetch your own during season or jump in a boat and catch your fish of the day…. Nice!

An island with magnificent tropical foliage and pristine beaches. Previously known as Scipio Caye, this picturesque natural masterpiece is one of the best islands in the surrounding area. Normally, these types of islands are not placed on the market. A very rare opportunity for a resort developer or simply a family heirloom to enjoy. Furthermore

Snorkelers Paradise!!

ZAMA CAYE Belize offers a buyer :

– A location ideal for hotel operations:
– Easy access and departure for guests who can arrive to and from the airport or mainland, safely and with ease, whatever the weather.
– Proximity to Placencia would mean that the owner wouldn’t have to have all of the staff living on site- they could go home after their shift. The owner would therefore save on staff accommodation costs and related costs, staff meal costs etc.
– Simplified operation due to proximity could avoid having large food and cold storage which would save capital costs, energy costs and amounts of money tied up in inventory.
– Easy transportation of all supplies, fuel, trash removal
– Easy access for emergency medical needs for guests or staff
– Food and Beverage revenue potential from outside guests at the resorts restaurants
– Security reasons (the Coast Guard is stationed at the next door island less than a mile away).
