Margaritaville: Belize’s Newest Resort Destination To Open On Ambergris Caye

by Larry Waight

Not many people realize that singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett’s hit 1977 song “Margaritaville” has deep roots in Texas rather than Key West, Florida. Buffett began to write the song at a friend’s Austin, Texas home – even before he discovered the Florida vacation mecca of Key West. According to music producer Norbert Putnam, Buffett lived the lyrics before he wrote them. “He was coming home from a bar, and he lost one of his flip-flops and he stepped on a beer can top and he couldn’t find the salt for his Margarita!” Putnam’s reaction? “That’s a terrible idea for a song.” Fortunately for Parrotheads and fans, Buffett disagreed and kept writing those lyrics. But what is there about this song that resonates with people of all ages?

According to Forbes magazine contributor Dana Feldman, the song Margaritaville “quickly took on a life of its own”, becoming a state of mind and way of life rooted in fun and escapism for those “growing older, but not up.” Sound like exactly the escape you seek? That means Margaritaville will be waiting for you. In Belize. See, Belize’s upcoming Margaritaville Beach Villa Resort promises visitors a different type of community at its grand opening. Curious? Take a peek at condo units just finished by the builder for a taste of what you can expect.

Key West or Ambergris Caye?

Located on Ambergris Caye, Belize’s prime hot spot for fun, excitement, and the good life, Margaritaville Beach Villa Resort offers guests a Key West vibe thanks to its proximity to San Pedro Town where sandy streets and South Florida-style abodes deliver a unique yet welcoming atmosphere. Meanwhile, the area’s bars, pubs, and eateries reflect Belize’s equally laid-back style of living. 

Despite a long list of things to see and do in San Pedro Town, guests already investing in the new community say they plan to stick around the premises after learning how many great amenities residents can expect in return for an already-solid investment. Two crystal blue pools, the private beachfront, bocce and pickleball courts, kayaks, and sailboats are a few of the complimentary extras that Margaritaville residents have at their disposal in Belize.

Whether your passion is bird watching, wind or kite surfing, parasailing, scuba diving, or world-class fishing, say the word and you’re on!
