OUR FIRST LEGACY PROPERTY:

Mayan Plantation, Belize City District, Belize

Please read the booklet “WHY BELIZE: Our Story – Our Vision” and should you wish to support or actively participate in achieving our Dream and Vision. Contact Us.

Mayan Plantation, Limited (“MPL”) a privately-held Hong Kong-based land holding company, is the owner of one of the largest, private fee-simple properties. It consist of 32,423.45-acres of land and about 7,000-acres of lagoons, lakes, and rivers in the beautiful eco-tourism nation of Belize, the only English speaking nation in Central or South America. Due to the property’s close proximity to the International Airport, bordered inland by the national highway, with miles of Caribbean shoreline, it may possibly be one of the most strategically located properties of Belize, the heart of the ancient Maya Kingdom.

On December 1, 2017, the Principality of Cappadocia, Inc., and MPL executed a Purchase and Sale Agreement of all shares of MPL, this nearly 45-year old holding company.

We are proud to introduce to you today’s MPL’s product of so many years of challenges, planning, studies, collaboration, hard work, and sacrifices. At the same time, we hope we can also give you a glimpse of tomorrow: Where we are headed and why we plan to convert our strategic, amazingly beautiful, sixty (60) square-miles Belize shoreline properties into a culturally sensitive, green living learning laboratory for sustainable human development.

First, a region-wide Benchmarking Study was prepared by the IC² Institute at The University of Texas https://thebelizefoundation.org/2015/08/27/report-knowledge-based-benchmarking-for-best-park/

A major focus of the Institute’s research and implementation activities is to accelerate wealth creation, sustainable development, and prosperity sharing through technology-based growth, at home and abroad.

A Historical Master Plan to preserve the natural resources and restore the many Maya sites was prepared in collaboration with faculty and graduate students of Texas A&M, the IC2 Institute of the University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.

The Principality of Cappadocia, Inc., through its Board of Directors, will oversee the engagement of the best possible team for MPL to guide the conversion of the entire 39,000-acre property into a diverse, sustainable, smart New City (Municipality), in which to live, study, work and play. These efforts should result in the creation of a powerful “Economic Engine” for the benefit of its shareholders, all stakeholders, and the people and government of Belize. This goal is similar to that of the hugely successful conversion of the James Campbell Estate’s sugarcane plantation on the Island of Oahu, into the City of Kapolei in Hawaii, http://kapolei.com/and its Ko’olina Resort http://koolina.com/ featuring the Aulani Disney Resort, a Marriott Resort and a Four Seasons Resort, on four picturesque man-made lagoons in the State of Hawaii. See Sister/Friendship City between Honolulu and Belize City.

Entitlements:

  • The entire property was subdivided, and 17,090-acres eventually set aside for residential & commercial development. Less than 20% of the Mayan Plantation, initially about 5,000-acres, will be utilized for the sustainable, ecologically sound “green” and economically viable development of a most livable community. Beginning at the shoreline our planners envision the development of a Destination Resort unlike any others in the world, encompassing about 1,000 acres of land along its beautiful Caribbean shoreline.
  • More towards the Center of the Shoreline, at the entrance to the Mid-Winters or Salt Creek Lagoon, MPL’s envisions and gained the approval of its Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the development of a 130-acre Boutique Resort

MPL is in discussions with potential project developers to develop hotels, casino, villas, marina, waterpark, retail shops, tennis courts, championship golf course, and other tourist amenities. Numerous Design Concepts can be viewed at: Design Concepts, Property and Belize information.

We believe we can uplift the social and economic status and opportunities of all stakeholders, especially the of the young people of Belize and create a model for other emerging Nations.
