A paradise within paradise, the new eco-evolutional development, encompassing 2.5 miles of pure unobstructed Belize coastline, just west of Ambergris Caye, will provide inspiration upon every visit.

Belize is known for its natural wonders, and having established itself as the eco-tour capital of the World, it is a Mecca for those wishing to be more in touch with nature.

The area is eco-significant as it is home to multiple species of fauna and flora. The rivers, bays and ocean's edge are teaming with a sea of life. Our development will include "sheltered tree-top observation areas" adjacent to migration trails of the large cats, and other mammals, where you, as a resident, may come and go as often as you wish to experience the wonders of nature which only Belize can offer. We have included some of the highlights of those reports and listing them for your enjoyment. These reports only include sightings at the time of the report and conclude that there is a multitude of species not yet fully documented. This poses and exciting opportunity for the intrepid naturalist.

In order to truly appreciate Cerros Sands at La Playa de Cerros and Corozal District, you must come and see it for yourself.

Below is only a partial list of the species that can be seen in areas of the Corozal district.

These are far too many to list. It seems everyday the rain forest yields yet another species to be discovered. Although not in the "rain forest" of Belize, Cerros Sands at La Playa de Cerros affords the best of both worlds as the Rain forest areas are just over an hours drive by car.
