Bargain Homes And Natural Beauty? Find Both In Belize’s Cayo District
If you’ve been fascinated by friend and family tales of moving to Central America only to learn that plans went very wrong when the country they chose turned out to be wildly expensive, now’s the time to show them that you’re a person who does a thorough job of researching overseas moves by becoming a property owner in a nation known for affordability and low cost of living.
Belize has already captured the hearts of North Americans, according to statistics. In 2014, North American ex-pats represented 10-percent of Belize’s population. Recently, one real estate professional estimated that number to be 50-percent; reason enough to feel confident that you’ll be welcomed into a world where English is the first language and you’ll be just a couple of hours away from returning home for special occasions.
Where is this affordable Belize community?
It’s called Carmelita Gardens and it’s located in Belize’s Cayo District, known as Belize’s bread basket because farming is king and the number of attractions and natural wonders in close proximity to the development belies the district’s size at just two square miles.
In addition to this community’s natural beauty, Carmelita Gardens is filled with ex-pats who knew an affordable, responsible project when they saw it after the U.S. developer announced his intention to launch a pioneering movement in Cayo to build lovely homes within an expansive community of like-minded residents. His idea mushroomed into a successful, modern-day homage to sustainable living.
Carmelita Gardens offers every conservation measure under the sun…
…yet stylish abodes of all sizes and designs are contemporary and filled with amenities folks from the U.S. expect, yet every home enjoys solar-powered energy, rainwater collection covers daily cleaning and personal tasks and while not everyone is forced to plant a garden, individual and communal plots are something to behold. This is working ecology at its most sophisticated, adding to this community’s appeal.
Do you worry that this much togetherness could be cloying? Relax. Homeowners attracted to and living at Carmelita Gardens prize their independence above all else, keep their own counsel and participate in the community’s social life only as much as they desire. Newcomers are encouraged to set their own boundaries in the spirit of the community’s motto: “Independent Together.”
