Ara Macao Resort and Marina Invites UK Residents to Enjoy Paradise and Ownership in Belize's Largest Resort Development

    LONDON, June 13 /CNW/ -- "If it's good enough for Leonardo DiCaprio and
Francis Ford Coppola, it's good enough for us." So say British investors
looking for that holiday home with a difference.
    Welcome to the Ara Macao Resort and Marina in Belize, the only
English-speaking country in Central America. As of June 2007, one of the
world's most exotic destinations is both reachable and affordable. On the
shores of the Caribbean, Belize is an eco-paradise, known for its snorkeling,
scuba diving, water sports and game fishing. Ara Macao means scarlet macaw and
the wildlife is fantastic, especially in the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar preserve.
Then there are Mayan ruins, such as Caracol, up in the mountains.
    Ara Macao, the 582-acre planned community on the Placencia coastline, is
the newest world-class resort in the Caribbean. The 5-star amenities include a
Championship golf course, luxury hotel, condominiums, villas, full-service
marina, designer swimming pools, soothing spas, a casino and gourmet
restaurants. And, the price of a luxury second home in the guaranteed sunshine
of Belize starts at under 250,000 pounds sterling.
    Daily routes from London through JFK, Houston or Miami to Belize City,
BZE make it easy to get to Ara Macao, where there is so much on offer, from
exploring the barrier reef and boat tours up the Monkey River to game fishing
trips. The turquoise water is sparkling; even at depths of 50 feet, the
visibility is 50 feet. Foodies are happy, too. As well as Francis Ford
Coppola's famous Turtle Inn, there is freshly-made gelato at Tutti Frutti, the
only authentic Italian ice cream parlour on the Placencia peninsula. For
dining out under the stars, with warm breezes off the ocean, the Inn at
Robert's Grove and Restaurant is a must.
    The ioVEST project is pledged to respect the delicate ecosystem and in
May, 2007, the Ara Macao project received full support from the Belize
government. Based on the success of Phase I, the Ara Macao Resort and Marina
has launched a Charter Member programme. This offers incentives to the next 50
purchasers for a limited time. "These new owners will enjoy a wonderful 5-day
trip to Belize, including all transportation costs, most meals and a menu of
excursions," says Chick Baruffi, Director of Operations and dive instructor.
"Our sales office has seats for the first 10 couples who book with us."
    "Our goal is to sell out this second phase within the next 60-90 days,"
according to Vince Minniti, the Principal, ioVest Development. "Several
early-round investors from the US have already seen a 33% appreciation in
their investment since January 2006; they intend to hold and enjoy this
vacation property for years to come."
