Corozal Belize: The Perfect Blend For Everything

Retire in Corozal Belize

As one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, Belize brings in visitors from around the world, attracted by the astoundingly beautiful natural areas, friendly people, and delicious food. Now, Belize is poised to become a top destination for retirees, offering expats a low cost of living, affordable property prices, and the perfect mix of modern convenience and laid-back Caribbean lifestyle.

Belize’s northern Corozal District is home to a thriving expat community. Located just a few miles from the border with Mexico, Corozal District benefits from cool temperate breezes that ensure fabulous weather all year-round. With excellent infrastructure, health care facilities, and access to familiar low-cost retailers like Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart just over the border, it’s no surprise that so many retirees from North America have chosen to live in Corozal District.

Belize is the only English-speaking country in the region, an added plus for expats who enjoy talking to the friendly locals and negotiating property contracts without needing to rely on translators. With plenty of fresh fruits and veggies grown right in Belize, and a bevy of delicious dishes ranging from Mexican to Caribbean-themed Creole food, it’s easy to see why so many retirees enjoy their new life in Belize. The low cost of living in Belize means that your dollar goes much further too, an added plus for retirees on a fixed budget.

Belize is also a country loaded with interesting and beautiful things to do and see. Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll through the rainforest and bird watching or more exciting activities like scuba diving and snorkeling, there is truly something for everyone in the Corozal District of Belize. Other popular attractions include exploring ancient Maya ruins, fishing, zip lining, white-water rafting, sea kayaking, and sailing.

Belize offers special incentives for qualified individuals wishing to retire in Belize. The Qualified Retired Persons (QRP) program imposes only a 30-day in-country residency requirement and lets eligible individuals import their personal goods, including vehicles, duty- and tax-free. Belize has a robust democratic government and property laws, and foreign ownership of land and businesses is heartily encouraged by the government. All property deeds, contracts, and documents are in English, and Belize has a transparent judicial system inherited from the long centuries of British rule.
