Bacab Eco Park
In 2003 the government of Belize indicated there was a need to develop new destinations and diversify tour offerings to cruise passengers in order to relieve the strain of increased tourism on Belize’s treasured archaeological sites and popular snorkeling destinations. On 359 acres of untamed land, strategically located near the airport, cruise port and highway, 15 miles outside of Belize City, Bacab Eco Park set out to provide “something for everyone.”
The park opened to the public in February of 2006 as Belize’s premier family destination and was instantly embraced by residents and tourists alike. This lush jungle playground proudly boasts over 200 species of tropical plants, exceptional viewing of free-range wildlife, a magnificent free-form pool, sculptured waterfall, restaurant and bar. It is truly, as one guest commented, “an oasis of fun and relaxation.”

Blackbird Caye Resort
Located 24 miles off the coast of Belize City, Blackbird Caye Resort’s 18 well-appointed cabanas are nestled along a two-mile stretch of meandering white sand, and perched at the door step to some of the world’s most exotic diving. The resort itself is located on Blackbird Caye within the famous Turneffe Atoll system, declared a marine reserve in 2012 by the Ministry of Forestry, Fisheries and Sustainable Development. An atoll is a marine structure composed of ring-like coral reefs surrounding a central lagoon. At 30 miles long and 10 miles Turneffe is the largest atoll system in Belize and the most biologically diverse in the Western Hemisphere.
One of its distinctive features is the amount of terrestrial and mangrove vegetation – over 150 islands, found in such a geographic location – so far from the mainland. This prime location affords guests access to more than 70 unspoiled dive and snorkel sites, all within minutes of the resort. Moreover, the resort is only 90 minutes away from a limestone cave structure that the great Jacques Cousteau dubbed as “one of the top 10 scuba diving sites in the world,” the Great Blue Hole. So visually stunning, the 153,000 year old imploded cave is almost perfectly circular, 1000 feet across and plunging to a depth 400 feet. She is the largest natural formation of its kind on Earth. Blackbird Caye Resort can take you there.
In a move seen as a “major shot in the arm” for the industry, The Feinstein Group of Companies rescued the former Fresh Catch Tilapia Farm from receivership in January of 2014. The firm’s inspired venture into aquaculture will bring this important business fully back into operation with pond rehabilitation, which began shortly after purchase, and restocking. Earthworks have been completed for two blocks of ponds on the 600-acre farm. The two blocks consist of 90 fish ponds with an impressive yield expectancy of over two million pounds of fillet per year. Fein Catch expects to start harvesting in early 2015.
