Christopher Columbus used Isla Carenero to careen his ships over to work on the bottoms at high tides. He called it Careening Cay. This small island is only a 2 minute boat ride to town. The water is crystal clear and the beaches have beautiful white sand. On one side of the lots there is the popular over the water restaurant, BiBis, and on the other side there are several small boutique hotels. This is a great place to build a small resort, apartments, or even private residence. The location is ideal for future land banking. Some of the best surf spots in Bocas are located on the other end of this small Caribbean island that you can completely walk around in 45 minutes.
The property has city electric and city water, which is a huge plus. Both expats and locals reside in the small village on this island. There is also a grocery store and a boat fuel dock nearby. Several hostels are also located on that side of the island. A marina is on the island side facing Bocas Town as well.
The lots are clean Rights of Possession (ROP) with clear ownership history. The smaller lot has 684.24 m2 and is offered at $115k The larger lot has 1000.31 m2 and has a long cement dock with a water concession. This lot has a cyclone fence completely around the property and is priced at $215k. Surveys can be provided.
The 2 lots can be sold together or separately. There is potential for the dock to have a structure built on it over the water. This is truly a great spot as it is really challenging to find a beach setting like this that you can build your dream project on.
