In 2000, The Feinstein Group of Companies set the wheels in motion for the Fort Street Tourism Village, the first development of its kind to be built in Belize. With an innovative and ground-breaking plan, the organization began to transform vision into reality. Phase I opened in December of 2001, effectively creating the cruise tourism industry in Belize. The Tourism Village made it possible for Belize to compete not only in the region, but in the world, for cruise ship tourism.
As a value-added service to the Tourism Village, the organization launched Fort Point Security to provide security for the tourist trade. The business evolved to become a full-service company, meeting the needs of both tourism and the local community.
The company founded Ocean View Realty to meet the increasing demand for real estate and retirement investment in Belize. Like its parent company, Ocean View Realty, is a highly successful and well-respected enterprise. More recently, The Feinstein Group acquired the former Fresh Catch Tilapia Farm with plans to rehabilitate and revitalize this important business.
The Feinstein Group of Companies is one of the most prominent and distinguished firms in the Belize tourism industry. It has been a leader in developing world class resort hotels and a multitude of other tourism-related products. This includes one of Belize’s most preeminent dive resorts perched on world famous Turneffe Atoll, the most biologically diverse atoll in the Western Hemisphere and a 436-acre lush jungle eco-park proudly boasting over 200 species of tropical plants and exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities.
Current tourism ventures include the ambitious and forward-thinking Ocean View Grand and Stake Bank projects and the expansive Blackbird Caye Condo initiative. Ocean View Grand, envisioned to become a dynamic nucleus of entertainment, recreation and luxury living, will be situated on the 538-acre island of North Drowned Caye, 2.5 miles offshore from Belize City. Stake Bank Island will feature a deep water port capable of berthing four voyager-class cruise ships at a time, as well as a marina, duty free shops, restaurants and a Mayan-themed water park.
