So far, yes, but it will be an ongoing battle to keep Placencia cruise free.

It was stopped. As long as they realize that a port will be the end of Placencia, it won't happen. RC actually boycotted Belize for a while after they were told not to build a port in Placencia. Not sure if they're still acting like a 2 year old...

The boycott was due to the cruise ship line demanding larger tenders which would be owned by one company and all the many who invested in the smaller tenders currently used, would be out of biz. Nothing to do with Placencia

RC need to know that the fight will go on if they try to bring large cruise ships to Placencia, all quiet for the moment though.

I think they pulled that because of the defeat in Placencia. The timing was too coincidental. Much too coincidental, but sometimes it really is coincidence. Good riddance nevertheless!
