Corozal Belize: The Best-Value Real Estate in the Caribbean

Corozal Belize: The Best-Value Real Estate in the Caribbean

Whether it’s the beautiful year-round weather, the relaxed atmosphere, or simply the delights of having fresh fruits always at hand, more and more people are retiring to or buying second homes in Belize. Corozal District in the north of Belize combines the laid-back vibes of the Caribbean with the right mix of modern conveniences, low cost of living, and a friendly, English-speaking populace.

While other parts of Belize can sometimes become uncomfortably humid, Corozal is ideally situated to benefit from air systems that bring much-welcomed cooler air in from higher northern latitudes while still benefiting from the more than 300 days of warm, sunny weather that make living in Belize so attractive.

Another benefit of living in Corozal District is its close proximity to the Mexican border, just nine miles away from locations like Orchid Bay. The southern Mexican state of Quintana Roo is home to the Cancun tourist area and airport as well as many familiar low-cost retailers like Wal-Mart and Home Depot.

Belize offers a number of attractive visas for full and part-time residents, including its QRP (Qualified Retired Persons) program that only requires eligible foreigners to be in the country a total of one month a year and offers duty-free exemptions on the importation of vehicles (including boats) and personal goods.

With a stable, peaceful parliamentary democratic system of governance, a friendly English-speaking population, and a system of laws based on the British system that make purchasing and protecting property simple, it’s no wonder that more and more expats from Canada and United States have chosen to retire or purchase a second home in Belize.

Now, more and more airlines are entering the busy North America-Belize market, with WestJet recently announcing direct service between Toronto and Belize City. American carriers offer non-stop service between Belize City and many major cities in the United States, making it more affordable than ever to get to and from Belize in just a few short hours.

Orchid Bay

Located on the scenic Chetumal Bay in Belize’s Corozal District, Orchid Bay is an inviting expat community with a full range of modern conveniences, great views, and attractive homes and undeveloped lots. Close to all of the best attractions in Belize, including Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, and several Maya ruins, Orchid Bay also has beautiful hiking trails, unspoiled scenery, and a pristine beach within walking distance of the community.

A master-planned, gated community ideal for expats looking to retire or buy a vacation home in the Caribbean, Orchid Bay is an established community offering condominiums, land, and villas in one of the most beautiful locations in Belize.
