Where is the Best Place to Live in Belize?

Belize is definitely a beautiful country, whether you’re scuba diving out on the reef or trekking through a pristine rainforest in the interior, but perhaps the one place that tops them all is Corozal.

Instead of states or provinces, Belize has districts, and the Corozal District is the northernmost, wedged between the sparkling waters of Chetumal Bay and the southern tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Blessed by refreshing winds that keep insects and humidity at bay, Corozal District has just 50,000 people, of which around 10,000 live in the capital, Corozal Town, a small community that has a lively expat scene with regularly organized activities and events.

And the finest place in all of Corozal is Orchid Bay, a gated, master-planned community that effortlessly combines the modern comforts of North America with a charming Caribbean setting. Located directly on the Chetumal Bay, Orchid Bay has first-world infrastructure and prime lots interspersed with lovely green areas brimming with wildlife.

With an old-fashioned small town vibe, Orchid Bay has just the right amount of luxury. Inside Orchid Bay, residents and visitors can enjoy sumptuous farm-to-table meals at the renowned Tradewinds Restaurant or enjoy a day of fun in the sun at the Orchid Bay Beach Club. Visitors can stay at the onsite Crimson Orchid Inn, a picturesque bed and breakfast with eight rooms, a lounge, and a lovely outdoor dining deck.

People move to Belize to enjoy a slower pace of life and the soothing sights and sounds of nature, but there are plenty of modern attractions in Orchid Bay as well. A medical clinic is being built which will be staffed by an American doctor, and there is high-speed wireless internet everywhere you go. Nature paths connect the community, giving residents the chance to see hundreds of bird species in a single morning or spot stunning orchids growing in their native habitat.

Orchid Bay has more than seven miles of coastline along the Chetumal Bay divided into three beaches. One of them, Pescadores Beach, has a boat dock and lovely palapa bar replete with hammocks perfect for enjoying a spectacular sunrise or sunset.

Orchid Bay is located directly across the water from the island of Ambergris Caye, the most popular tourist destination in Belize and the gateway to the reef where sea kayaking, boating, sailing, fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling are popular activities.
