Cerros Sands, A Prestigious Waterfront Community in Corozal Belize
With amazingly low prices, beautiful weather all-year round, and easy options for getting long-term residency, Belize is increasingly becoming a popular destination to retire. Belize is the only country in the region where English is the official language and living costs are fairly low – it’s quite easy to do well on $1500 U.S. a month. Corozal Town, located in the northern part of the country, has a thriving expat community, drawn to the area by the variety of outdoor activities like swimming, diving, and hiking and nearby affordable shopping across the border in Mexico.
One of the finest places to live in the Corozal region is Cerros Sands, a master planned community right on the waterfront. Homes and parcels have their choice of beach-view, sea-view, or channel-side locations and Cerros Sands is perfect for boat owners as there is deep water access. Also of note is Cerros Sands faces directly into the Caribbean Sea breezes.
Land prices are incredibly affordable, starting at just $17,770 and beachfront parcels beginning at $79,000. Residents from diverse locations such as Belgium, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver in Canada, and Henderson, Nevada, New York City, and the Napa Valley in California have already made Cerros Sands their new home. There are available parcels ready for development. Retiring in Belize is now easier than ever thanks to the country’s Qualified Retirement Program. Individuals who qualify not only gain permanent residence in Belize but also qualify for enormous tax breaks, including on the purchase of real estate.
Nearby attractions to Cerros Sands include sailing, snorkeling, boating and hiking. Just a few miles away is the Maya ruins of Cerros, one of the most intriguing Mayan centers, replete with soaring temples and huge plazas. The town of Chetumal, Mexico is just eight miles away by water, a city with modern shopping malls and large low-cost retailers like Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Sams Club
Whether purchased as a vacation home or as a primary retirement property, Cerros Sands is an outstanding community in which to live and play. Unlike other exclusive communities for expats, Cerros Sands is not crowded and yet is still close enough to all of the most popular destinations like Placencia and Ambergris Caye.
Financing packages are available for land purchases. Finished properties are also available for sale as the developer has warm relations with local real estate brokers. The developer of Cerros Sands, Mark Leonard, has been living in the community since 2014 with his family. Visitors are more than welcome to contact him for a personalized tour.
