Ahead Of The Curve: Placencia In 5 Years

A luxurious waterfront residence to share with your loved ones. A stunning location on Caribbean shores. An up-and-coming destination that's about to be on every jetsetter's lips.

Placencia has certainly been attracting a lot of attention lately.

The twinkle in the eye of international property investors, its 16 miles of gorgeous beaches, beachfront and lagoon-front property, and vibrant international community draw visitors from all over the world - with more arriving every year.

Ahead Of The Curve

Power players like Sotheby's and Coldwell Banker have already recognized the potential of Belize, as have celebrity investors like Greg Norman and Leonardo DiCaprio. Mr. DiCaprio bought his own caye just off the coast earlier this year. When his development opens in late 2016, with residential prices ranging from US$5-15M, the press will send Belize's profile into the stratosphere as adventurers from across the globe flock to its Caribbean shores.

Ahead Of The Curve

As Mr. DiCaprio says, "As soon as I got there, I fell in love. Belize is truly unique."

He's not the only one.

Legendary pro golfer Greg Norman has taken a special interest in the Belizean coast, visiting earlier this year to lay out plans for a new golf course on the beautiful Caye Chapel. Purchased for US$23M last year, the island is now moving into full development. This will be Belize's first PGA-quality golf course, as part of a development that will feature a branded five-star hotel slated to open in late 2017.

Ahead Of The Curve

As more large-scale investors make big waves across Belize, the rising tide will lift property prices across the board as it has in other destinations. In Cabo, for instance, the average daily rate when the famous Las Ventanas opened in 1994 was US$230 per night. By 1999, when Cabo had become a hot destination, the rate was over US$1,000 per night. There's no doubt that Placencia is currently on the same trajectory.

When Placencia's international airport opens in five years' time, the area will become even more accessible. Tourism will boom at an exponential rate as more jetsetters can easily visit this paradise. And many won't be able to resist investing in a holiday home.
