A Heartfelt Goodbye
The final days of Exotic Caye Beach Resort (ECBR) are upon us. Last Friday, the resort closed its doors in preparation of what’s to come.

With coastlines bordering both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Nicaragua is the ultimate destination for surfers.

It’s hard to believe that the time has finally come to say goodbye to our wonderful beachfront property, the Exotic Caye Beach Resort. She is finally making her transition into the new and fantastic Belize Marriott Residences, which we all are absolutely thrilled about. As many of us surely will, our very own Shirlee Arnould remembers many fond moments at Exotic Caye. We will dearly miss this resort but with waves of change comes waves of opportunities.
Ambergris Caye is an amazing home to some incredible species of animals and mammals. You may come across some of these spectacular creatures while they are out and about in their own environment, or find them in the Belize Zoo. Either way, they are sure to provide their onlookers with a lot of intrigue and entertainment.
There is a truly fascinating history that surrounds beautiful Ambergris Caye and it dates back to the pre-Columbian time when the Mayan community populated the island. And you will find that the La Isla Bonita is both beautiful and beguiling.
Along with some of Nicaragua’s beautiful beaches, are some of the most consistent and incredible waves. For this reason, it comes at no surprise that surfers find Nicaragua to be a surfer’s haven. Both amateur and professional surfers alike, travel from all over the globe to engage in some of the best wave action in the world. If surfing isn’t your forte, watching these guys (and gals) ride these waves is sure to serve up a very interesting afternoon.
Until next year,
” 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.”
