Real Property Included

Location:

The Lodge at Big Falls lies on a 25-acre parcel of land along the Rio Grande River approximately 19 miles West of the Punta Gorda, Belize airport.

Premises Details:

The property on which the Lodge at Big Falls has been built was purchased in August 2001. The owners arrived in Belize in October 2001 and construction of the lodge took place between November 2001 and February 2003. The lodge opened for visitors on 1 March 2003. The lodge began its operations with six thatched cabanas and the main lodge. A swimming pool was added in 2005. A hardwood cabana was built in 2009 and two others were added in autumn 2010. At the time of opening there was no telephone service in Big Falls. There was forty miles of dirt road still between Big Falls and Dangriga and power came from a diesel generator with unreliable supply. All of these infrastructure issues were dealt with by 2009. Each cabana has a hardwood floor and ceiling made from a mix of secondary tropical hardwoods including nargusta, santa maria and milady. Each has two queen size beds, ceiling fans, air conditioning, en-suite bathroom and shower, kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave and table-top stove with two burners. Each thatched roof cabana has a spacious en-suite bathroom with enclosed shower garden. These cabanas are thatched with bay-leaf palm, a traditional Belizean thatching material. Beautifully tiled floors, ceiling fans and fully screened, wood louvered windows offer a cool well-ventilated living area. The Lodge itself is covered by a high thatched ceiling and accommodates a full service restaurant and bar which is fully equipped to serve food and beverage all day in a natural setting. The adjacent pool fits well with the serene, lush surroundings. The property is spacious and lush which affords the opportunity to construct additional accommodations. All furniture, fixtures, equipment, and implements included in price.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

In the near future a new southern border between Belize and Guatemala will open at Jalacte. The road to the border is paved and complete. The next step will be a political agreement to go ahead. When open it should provide an economic stimulus to the local economy in general and tourism in particular. There are many thousands of European visitors from Spain, Italy, Germany and France who would like to be able to include Belize and the Caribbean in their itineraries and the lodge would hope to benefit from this new traffic coming through southern Belize. This new opening should also increase land values along the road. Big Falls is one of the few places villages along the road that has titled land areas. The lack of titled land makes land to buy scarce in the area.

Competition / Market:

The Lodge is open year around unlike other area jungle lodges which are prone to flooding. Resort has a package itinerary with REI Adventures and also receives $30,000 yearly rental income from a cruise line tour operator.
