It is estimated that an astonishing 10,000 Americans per day are entering into retirement, and one of the fastest-growing expat communities is in the small nation of Belize.
Located just southeast of Mexico, Belize is a wonderland of year-round warm temperatures, sunny skies, and an abundance of nature. As the least densely populated country in the region, Belize is often described as the “lost jewel of Paradise,” an untouched place where exotic animals and colorful birds thrive in pristine rainforests. Add in the fact that Belize has hundreds of picture postcard islands located on the second-largest barrier reef in the world, and it’s easy to see why so many people love visiting and living in Belize.
Surprisingly, despite the gorgeous beachfront panoramas and low cost of living, property in Belize is still remarkably affordable. But with all six of the largest airlines in North America now busy adding non-stop routes to Belize, it’s only a matter of time before the scales begin to tip and prime property in Belize will be priced out of reach for most investors or retirees.
The premier community for prime real estate in Belize is Orchid Bay. Located right on the water across from Ambergris Caye, the number one tourist destination in Belize, Orchid Bay offers tropical warmth, Caribbean beauty, and tranquility without sacrificing any first world comforts. Completed villas, condominiums, and an entire village of beachfront casitas are available at Orchid Bay along with prime lots ready for development.
Orchid Bay is a gated, master-planned community with a full range of infrastructure and amenities, including a gourmet restaurant serving up delicious fresh-caught seafood, a beach club perfect for enjoying a drink at the pool bar and mingling with neighbors, community-wide high-speed wireless internet, and modern utilities such as reverse osmosis filtered water service to every home.
Orchid Bay residents have direct access to the beautiful Chetumal Bay, and from there, the rest of the Caribbean. And Mexico is just 10 miles away, offering residents access to familiar low-cost retailers like Walmart and Sam’s Club. The Corozal Free Trade Zone is also just minutes away, giving Orchid Bay residents duty-free goods at unbeatable prices.
Residents of Orchid Bay genuinely enjoy the good life, with easy access to activities such as sea kayaking in the calm waters of the bay, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, bird watching, and touring nearby wildlife sanctuaries.
