Dear Reader,

Happy 2020!

As we say “Goodbye” to 2019, we weigh in on some of the most popular articles that we published and posted on ECI’s website last year. Some of the great pieces included Tropic Airlines in Belize, CBS’s American “Economic Refugees” Retiring Abroad, and the Elegant, Luxurious, and Classic Marriott at Ambergris Caye. These, as well as many others, are very informative and delightful so be sure to give them a read.

On behalf of our extended family at ECI Development, we wish you a very
happy and truly blessed New Year!

Tropic Airlines in Belize

Since its very first flight in 1979, Tropic Air has delighted its customers by providing safe, affordable air travel and cargo services. And over these past 40 years, the airline has grown to become a sound fleet of 16 Cessna aircraft and a Gippsland GA8 Airvan. Today, Tropic Air conveniently flies to destinations in Belize, Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras.

American “Economic Refugees” Are Increasingly Retiring Abroad

In this article from CBS News, Cynthia and Edd Stanton tell how they are enjoying a higher quality of life with a lower cost of living by retiring in Ecuador. While seemingly paradoxical, it really is possible to live better for less overseas. Mike Cobb knows from first-hand experience, as he and his wife and raised their two daughters in Latin America for 14 years.

Elegant, Luxurious, and Classic: The Marriott at Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is the largest and one of the most exquisite islands of Belize. Easily accessible and offering temperate weather year-round, as well as gorgeous coastlines, Ambergris Caye is a mecca for fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling enthusiasts. The island has largely remained off the tourist grid, but this is about to change.

Until next time,

” ECI is just a solid, wholesome company. You meet the founders, and the people, and they’re just happy. You know anything Mike Cobb tells you, you can take to the bank. It’s like your brother telling you, or even better. This is my first trip to Gran Pacifica, and it just feels like home the moment you get here. Very comfortable, just like old time United States. It has the sense of community that people lost in the US, and I think that’s the most important thing. You really can’t put a dollar value on it, but you know it when you see it, and it’s here.

Coming from a construction background, I can see that everything here is built to last, and there are a lot of little details that were thought of. Looking at the growth here, it really seems to be a solid investment, and it’s also just such a great atmosphere. It’s hard to put words to. It’s really the whole mix of things, trustworthy, common sense people, great climate, real community, and sensible growth. Mike Cobb is a person with a dream, and he’s really making that dream happen here. That’s something you don’t find every day.”
