Baby Boomers and Second Homes: Why They Are Choosing Belize

With warm temperatures, beautiful nature, and a relaxed and healthy lifestyle, it’s no wonder that more and more baby boomers are choosing to retire in Central American nations like Belize.

Belize combines the best of the Caribbean with hundreds of miles of mainland parks and nature reserves where monkeys, parrots, iguanas, and toucans make their homes in the rainforest. Belize is also blessed with hundreds of islands and more than 180 miles of the second-largest coral reef in the world, home to an astonishing 25% of all marine species found on the planet. Expats in Belize can choose to partake in a different nature adventure every day of the month and never run out of new things to do and see.

Many expats choose life in Belize because of the culture. Whether you’re interested in experiencing indigenous cultures like the Garifuna, declared by the United Nations as a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity, or enjoying fantastic restaurants, nightlife, and expat social activities, there’s something for everyone in Belize.

Another benefit of retiring or living in Belize is the food. Beyond the spectacular choices available ranging from fresh-caught seafood to local, organic fruits and vegetables, Belize is known for its diverse culinary influences, including Mexican, British, Caribbean, and African dishes.

And, now that Belize has become one of the most popular visitor destinations in the region, there are a plethora of affordable non-stop flights to and from the country and North America. Whether your home base is Atlanta, Los Angeles, Newark, Charlotte, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Houston, or Dallas, there are regular non-stop flights to make it easy to remain in contact with friends, family, and business concerns in North America.

Investing in property in Belize is not only more affordable than many other popular locations like Costa Rica but contracts, deeds, and other legal documents are easy to understand because they are written in English, the official language of the country. Furthermore, all judicial proceedings are conducted in English, and Belize has a stable, democratic government that is staunchly in favor of protecting property rights.
