Belize: A Great Place to Retire Where You’ll Feel Right at Home

Retire in Belize

As people head towards retirement, a number of decisions need to be made. And if you want to move overseas, the process is even more complicated. After all, you’ll be moving to a brand-new country, and one of the most important considerations is how well you’ll feel “at home” overseas.

The good news is that retiring in Belize is simple, affordable, and easy. And when it comes to feeling at home, no place is better. The locals are world-renowned for their friendliness and genuine hospitality, and there is a thriving expat society composed of fellow retirees and expats who are eager to show newcomers the ropes and make them feel welcome.

Many retirees find that they enjoy their social life in Belize much more than they did back in their old city. If you’re a churchgoer, there are plenty of options in Belize, and it’s a great way to make friends and participate in activities. If that’s not your style, there are also volunteer organizations and social clubs. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself receiving more invites than you know what to do with.

One of the best places to retire in Belize is the country’s northern Corozal District. Bordering Mexico and just across the water from the island of Ambergris Caye, Corozal has a lively expat community. The town center has a lovely square complete with a public library, several churches, and lovely cafes, restaurants, and shops. Expats in Corozal regularly organize fairs, dances, and other social activities, giving new residents plenty of options for meeting new friends and feeling at home.

Orchid Bay is a gated, master-planned community located in the Corozal District that offers residents modern conveniences and infrastructure in a laid-back Caribbean setting. Situated on the Bay of Chetumal, Orchid Bay has a number of completed homes, beachfront condominiums, lovely villas, and undeveloped lots available at competitive prices.

Orchid Bay understands that relocating is much more than just finding the right home that’s why their master plan includes 40% of the land set aside for green, wild spaces, and the community has earned the highest rating for environmental compliance in Belize for the past five years running.

Retirees and investors interested in learning more about expat life in Belize can book an Orchid Bay buyer’s tour today!
