Belize Is Quintessential Caribbean At An Affordable Price

Top Destination For Retirees

A proud member of the CARICOM family of nations, Belize is a beautiful gem of a country. Nestled just below Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Belize is home to hundreds of gorgeous offshore islands and more than 200 miles of beach along the Caribbean Sea.

On a map, Belize is approximately the same size as Massachusetts. But with just 360,000 total residents, Belize is a natural wonderland of lush jungles, verdant mountains, rolling hills, fertile valley plains, pristine rivers, wetlands teeming with birds, rainforests that are home to exotic wildlife like jaguars and monkeys, and astounding views over the water. Add in an exciting mix of adventure activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, spelunking ancient ceremonial caves, fishing, and exploring ancient Maya ruins, and it’s easy to see why Belize is the hottest tourism destination in the region.

Belize is also one of the most popular investment destinations in the Caribbean. With beautiful properties overlooking the water available at very affordable prices, Belize has attracted a thriving community of retirees, investors, and expats. Communities like Belize’s Corozal District, in particular, perfectly combine small town life, beautiful nature, and convenient access to top tourist destinations like Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, and Belize City.

Best of all, Belize has generous programs in place to encourage foreigners to retire and invest in the country. There are no restrictions on foreigners buying, renting, or selling property. And the QRP program allows qualifying individuals aged 45 and older along with their family to live in the country without any need to pay taxes on income earned outside of Belize. The QRP program also allows individuals and their family to import personal goods into the country tax-free, including cars, trucks, boats, and even light aircraft.

Residents of Corozal District enjoy cooler temperatures during the hottest months. And the border town of Chetumal in Mexico is just a few miles away. Belize is a great place to live precisely because of its largely rural nature, so shopping in Mexico means you can find affordable goods and other items at familiar retailers like Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart.

And thanks to the big airlines competing to serve the growing Belize-North America market, it’s easier than ever to fly to and from Belize from cities across the United States and Canada.
