Loc: Germany

in some sources about Belize and Corozal District I find a village named "Pueblo Nuevo" listed. When I look for it, I can only find the Pueblo Nuevo ferry on the New River. Is there a village associated with the ferry? Or was there a village called Pueblo Nuevo in earlier times? The name kind of suggests it...

Thank you for any ideas

Loc: Tarpon Springs, Fl./Copper Ban...
The International Travel Maps Belize version 6, no publishing date, shows Pueblo Nuevo as a small settlement on the east side of the New River, very near where the river flows into the Bahia Chetumal. It appears to have no roads going to it, accessible only by water. I got my map copy in the early 2000's but the cartography was clearly old and out-of-date. It did not show the ferry, ferry road, or "new" way into Copper Bank. All those changes happened in the early 1990's. A look at Google Earth of the area in question shows no sign of a settlement. I couldn't even find any houses. I suspect Pueblo Nuevo was a village in past times, near where the current ferry is located, but it disappeared some time ago. If folks move out, it doesn't take the bush long to reclaim the area.
P.S. Perhaps it had something to do with road construction, which villages got road connections and which did not. This is only speculation, but I can easily imagine folks abandoning villages that did not get road connections for nearby places that did, simply for the much greater convenience.
