Belize Economy: Still A Great Bet For Expats

Best Places to Retire Abroad, Belize

Whether you’re looking for an affordable place to live with a low cost of living or simply want to enjoy fabulous weather, friendly neighbors, and some of the most stunning views of nature anywhere, the small Central American nation of Belize is a great choice. About the size as Vermont, Belize is a country with amazing natural landscapes that include misty mountains, pristine rainforests, and more than 200 miles of beaches, tropical islands, and coral atolls.

Expats have been increasingly choosing to live in the lovely Corozal District in northern Belize. Located right across the border with the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, home to the popular resort town of Cancun and low-cost retailers like Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart, Corozal District is close to all of the top attractions in Belize. Whether you want to snorkel at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, explore ancient Maya ruins at Santa Rita, head to Belize City for some big-city entertainment, or simply relax and soak up the sun on a beach at Chetumal Bay, Corozal District has it all.

Belize offers all of the best features of a Caribbean lifestyle at a far lower price than other countries in the region. Best of all, Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language, meaning you’ll never need help in reading signs, talking to the locals, or understanding a property contract. All the major airlines have non-stop flights from the United States to Belize, so you’ll always be able to stay in contact with family, friends, and businesses back home.

The cost of living in Belize is incredibly affordable. Whether you want to hire a local to clean your house or want to feast on a bevy of organic, local fresh fruits and vegetables, everything is in reach in Belize. Many expats find that they spend a lot of time in the great outdoors, staying active and feeling better than they have in years. And there are plenty of modern, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities for when a healthy lifestyle and diet aren’t enough.

Orchid Bay

Located in one of the most scenic spots of Corozal District is the master-planned, gated community of Orchid Bay. Situated right on the beautiful Chetumal Bay, Orchid Bay is a fully developed community that elegantly blends tropical warmth and beauty with first-world comforts.

Whether you’re looking for a completed villa or a homesite right on the water, Orchid Bay has affordable properties available today. With a thriving expat social scene, you’ll feel right at home at Orchid Bay.
