Please reference the descriptions below for further understanding of each breakdown. Prices may vary slightly in different parcels under the same category depending on location of parcel, proximity to road, etc.

In order of value: Coastline: Location to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is taken into account and affects the price of coastline throughout our different subdivided parcels.
